The May Firm will not accept requests for legal advice nor provide legal advice regarding specific facts or circumstances over the Internet.
In plain English: We use our website, in part, to advertise to potential clients who may be in need of a good personal injury attorney. Reading content on our website or reaching out to The May Firm does not make you a client. You become a client when you meet with one of our attorneys and we mutually agree that The May Firm will represent you. We won’t give you legal advice over the Internet. If you are seeking legal advice about your specific case, you need to meet with one of our attorneys.

The May Firm welcomes and encourages electronic communication. However, no confidential information should be communicated without first requesting to be represented and The May Firm’s agreement to representation. Any information provided through electronic means, such as email or chat services, is not privileged or protected by an attorney-client relationship.

In such cases, no more information will be disclosed than necessary.
In plain English: The May Firm loves to hear from prospective clients! However, it isn’t a good idea to provide us with confidential information until you have met with one of our attorneys and we have agreed to represent you.

Prior case results do not guarantee a similar outcome. The May Firm cannot, and does not, guarantee any particular result in any particular case. You should not assume that you will achieve the same or similar results based on the outcome of previous cases. All case outcomes are determined on a case-by-case basis and there is no way to determine how much one case may be worth based on the results of another case.
In plain English: We provide information about the outcomes of previous cases, including awarded damages, on this website to give you a very general idea of the types of cases we have won and how much we have been able to recover for clients. We are not suggesting that you will recover similar sums. If, for example, you are considering filing a wrongful death claim, you should not assume that you might recover $1.5 million because another wrongful death case resulted in a $1.5 million award. The results of our previous cases cannot be used to predict the outcome of future cases.
