During his career, he has also been involved in assisting clients with complex divorces involving the division of substantial assets, closely held family businesses, and investments of significant value.

Marc May is well-versed in all aspects of family law and aggressively pursues his clients’ interests through the use of his skills as a litigator and negotiator. His approach involves taking an aggressive stand when necessary. At the same time, he understands the value of resolving matters amicably, if possible. To that end, he often uses alternative dispute resolution methods, such as mediation, in an attempt to negotiate fair and equitable settlements for his clients.
