The May Firm is an established personal injury firm recognized for its exceptional lawyers who are completely dedicated to easing your road to recovery after you have been injured. Leave it to us to fight your legal battle while you rest and recuperate. Your well-being comes first! Let us be here for you.

To the attorneys and support staff at The May Firm, you are family. Period. We take your hardships personally. It is our mission to make sure that you receive every penny of the compensation that you deserve after someone else hurt you. Now is the best time to put the weight of your world onto our shoulders. There is no reason for you to have to go it alone!

We want our office to feel like home. Meeting with an attorney to talk about filing a personal injury claim can be intimidating for just about anyone — walking into an office full of stuffy, pretentious staff certainly isn’t going to help to make you feel comfortable. It is important to The May Firm to create a welcoming environment in each of our several office locations for everyone who walks in the door. The legal process can be scary — the least that we can do is make you feel welcome and at ease when you come to see us.

Why Choose Us? We Win

There is no doubt about it — The May Firm wins our cases. Our success rate is roughly 99% — we have had two losses in the last five years and we fought tooth and nail to win those two cases. Although we didn’t get the results that we were hoping for, we advocated hard for our clients until the very end.

At The May Firm, we are proud of our track record. Of our many successes in court, we have had over three dozen 6-digit case results and nearly one dozen seven-digit awards. We’ve won slip and fall, motor vehicle accident, and dog bite cases, and have been triumphant in wrongful death suits. Whatever the nature of the case that caused your injury, we will win it. Clients choose The May Firm because we have proven time and time again that we triumph in the courtroom.

Bigger Recoveries

The May Firm makes sure that our clients win big — many receive awards in the six and seven-figure range. We have recovered over $150,000 in many different dog bite cases while some clients injured in car accidents have been awarded over $1,000,000 in damages. Additionally, several of our clients have received millions of dollars in wrongful death suits.

The May Firm recovers big awards for our clients in and out of the courtroom. More often than not, we are able to settle cases for sums large enough to cover our clients’ expenses and then some. If we aren’t able to settle, we will take your case to court.

Pay Nothing Until We Win

If you were injured by someone else, you have far more important things to worry about than paying a personal injury lawyer. In fact, legal costs should be the absolute least of your worries, especially while you are still recovering. The May Firm operates on a contingency basis in order to alleviate the stress of legal fees and growing bills. This means that you don’t pay a penny until we win your case. Hiring a personal injury attorney on a contingency basis means that you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
