Robert May was raised the oldest of five siblings in a blue-collar family on the Central Coast of California. Robert spent his teenage years working after school and each summer at the local cement plant where he would shovel sand and repair cement trucks. Robert then made the decision to be the first member of his family to receive a college degree. Robert’s goal was to attend Cal Poly SLO after his grandfather, Bob May, took Robert to the campus (before taking him to the batting cages) to show him where he could get an education. Robert idolized his grandfather and always wanted to make him proud.
After graduating from Righetti High School, Robert fulfilled his dream when he attended and graduated from Cal Poly SLO with a degree in Business Administration.
After college, Robert moved to San Diego County to attend law school at California Western School of Law. Upon graduation from law school, Robert began his legal career practicing as a personal injury attorney in San Diego, CA. During that time, Robert became the lead litigation attorney at the personal injury law firm where he took his first job. There, Robert obtained extensive experience in litigating complex high value personal injury cases. Robert has separated himself from other attorneys by focusing on the specific needs of each client, as his motto has always been to “treat clients like family.”
During the course of his career, Robert has resolved numerous six and seven figure cases. In the course of his career, Robert has obtained verdicts and settlements in excess of $25,000,000. Robert is admitted to practice in the State of California, in numerous Federal District Courts and is a member of the State Bar of California. Robert became a member of the prestigious Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum before the age of thirty (30).
The May Firm is a law firm dedicated to handling only personal injury cases on behalf of injured individuals and their loved ones. The May Firm is the realization of Robert’s goal to return to his roots on the Central Coast. Outside of the practice of law, Robert enjoys spending time with his family, his Vizsla (“Mez”), surfing and traveling.
