Our Process

We provide aggressive legal representation on a contingency fee basis, which means our clients do not owe any fees or costs unless we win their case. All case consultations are free. We are dedicated to achieving the best result on each and every case:

1.Gather Information

Our experienced auto accident lawyers will oversee the investigation of each client’s case. The nature and degree of the client’s injuries and diagnosis will be determined by gathering medical records and reports from relevant medical providers and physicians. Often, The May Firm will need to secure statements from witnesses who have information concerning the events of the accident or facts establishing negligence. Documentation evidencing a client’s wage loss will also be obtained.

2. Negotiate On Your Behalf

Settlement negotiations will begin when the client has finished medical treatment or has reached maximum medical improvement. The May Firm will present a demand package to the insurance company, which includes relevant medical records and bills, wage loss information, and photographs. The demand package will explain the circumstances surrounding the accident or negligence, and will make a specific monetary settlement demand. The demand package will be reviewed by the insurance company who will provide a response in the form of a denial of the claim, an acceptance of the demand, or most likely, a counter offer for settlement purposes. During this process, The May Firm will provide recommendations to the client concerning the reasonableness of the insurance company’s settlement offers and how best to proceed. Ultimately, the client will decide whether to settle or proceed with litigation. Remember, a client’s case does not end until it is settled or the case is tried to verdict.

3. Litigation

If a client is not satisfied with an insurance company’s settlement offer during the negotiations phase, or if the insurance company’s settlement offer is unreasonable, our personal injury lawyers will file a lawsuit. At that time, the litigation process will begin. Once Even if a personal injury lawsuit is filed, a client’s case can still settle. Many times litigation cases settle right before or during trial. Every personal injury case is different and it must be treated accordingly.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I went to law school with the goal of becoming a personal injury attorney. There wasn't day during law school that I did not know what I wanted to do once I became an attorney.

During law school, each of The May Firm's lawyers, interned at personal injury practices. Upon passing the bar examination, my goal was realized. Since then, my goal is to be the best personal injury attorney. I work towards that goal every day.

Frankly, our attorneys never considered doing any but becoming personal injury lawyers. Practicing as a personal injury attorney is a great honor and responsibility.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

Our personal injury attorneys grew up in very humble circumstances and, because we are brothers, each of learned the same lessons in hard work. As we grew up, each of us saw our Dad worked tirelessly in the concrete business. Then, as we got older, each of us worked at the concrete plant (pouring concrete, working on the cement trucks and shoveling sand and gravel, which gave us a work ethic that serves our clients well.

At the same time, our attorneys come from working class roots and we take pride in that fact. Our lawyers are not pretentious and we know that no matter what your occupation or financial status, every personal deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. We do not wear hard hats or carry shovels, like we did when we were younger, but we come to work everyday knowing it takes a hard work to get the results our clients deserve. That will never change.

To that end, we fight for our clients rights for justice.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

The May Firm is different than any other law firm I have been associated with.

First, May Firm is a family...literally. The injury lawyers at The May Firm are brothers.

Second, each of us is going exactly what we want to do. We work together, doing what we love with people we love. It's the best of both worlds.

Lastly, as brothers, we are more than willing to demand excellence from one another without being overly concerned that the other will be offended, which is a rarity in the legal profession. Egos are checked at the door, we put our heads down and get the job done.
