[us_testimonial style=”1″ author=”K Davis” company=”Client”]It has been a pleasure working with Chris and his staff. Finding an attorney can be difficult, especially when moving to a new city. I worked with Chris on two different cases. He won my confidence during my first case, therefore when when I needed advice years later, I knew exactly who to call. Chris and his staff are very knowledgeable and easy to talk with. They also have a wide referral network to meet the needs of the client for treatment. Chris goes above and beyond to get the most for his clients and has always been very upfront and realistic regarding possible outcomes. Any questions that I had were answered very quickly, clear and concise. I feel very blessed to have met Chris and his wonderful team. Chris and Rosie are like family to me and it warms my heart to know that they are just a phone call away.
[/us_testimonial][us_testimonial author=”The Kelly’s” company=”Client”]I met Christopher May several years ago after a horrific accident I was involved in while on the job. At the time I was a Police Officer directing traffic when I was struck by a motor vehicle. I first started the case with another Attorney but he was unable to provide the attention I felt the case needed. After speaking with a mutual friend of Mr. May I called and spoke to him. I knew right away he was the attorney for me.

The professionalism Mr. May displayed on the phone was out standing. At the time of our first conversation he explained to me that he could not get into depth with my case until I decided if I was going to let the other Attorney go. He never pressured me, but also gave me some friendly advise.

Chris first settled my workers comp case. Chris and his entire staff kept me in the loop the entire time and we were able to resolve that case quickly. Workers comp would only cover my injury to my arm, but not the more severe injury to my back, so Chris and his staff to my case to the highest level to be heard.

Chris took my case further because we did not get the resolution we wanted and filed a law suite with the insurance company of the lady that hit me. This case was just settled after over three years. Chris and his team walked me through every step of this case the entire time it was going on. Chris always called and checked on me to see my progress with the several doctors I have had to see.

I moved away from Charlotte NC back home to Boston MA during this case. Chris and him team made the arrangements to have a telephone conference when needed and managed to take care of most paperwork with me being over 900 miles away.

My wife and I have built a strong friendship with Chris that will continue a life time. In my profession I have met a lot of Attorneys, but there are a few that are professional towards everyone they come across and Chris is one of those Attorneys. I would highly recommend Mr. May and his staff to anyone for any case you may have any where from criminal to workers comp and beyond. Thank you Chris and your team for all you have done for me and my family.[/us_testimonial][us_testimonial author=”Tanya T.” company=”Client”]After other lawyers refused my case, I took one last chance and contacted Christopher May. In December I was rear-ended and totaled my car. Luckily I was not seriously hurt, but did have medical bills from physical therapy, lost time trying to replace my car, and headaches from attempting to deal with the at-fault insurance company. Knowing this wouldn’t be a high-paying settlement, Christoper May and his team still offered to help and treated me with as much respect and attention as any other client. The process was painless and allowed me to focus on more important things. I highly recommend Christoper and his entire team to anyone needing legal assistance. [/us_testimonial]

[us_testimonial author=”Paige Crisp” company=”Client”]In the early part of 2016 I was involved in a motor vehicle accident. I was rear ended, my vehicle was totaled and I sustained a back injury. I had hired an attorney to ensure my medical bills would be paid. I wasn’t looking to get rich, only for my medical expenses to be taken care of. However, four months later, nothing had been done other than the leg work that I myself had done. Phone calls were never returned to me by the attorney’s office, no progress was being made and I had become highly stressed and frustrated. I was at the point I was willing to risk paying the medical bills myself as opposed to dealing with the attorney’s office. The entire experience had been beyond a burden.

Thankfully, a friend that works in the legal field suggested I call Christopher May and speak with him. So, before deciding to surrender to the insurance company and probably ending up paying unnecessary medical bills I gave him a call. To my surprise, Mr. May was genuinely concerned with what had happened to me in regards to both the accident and the lack of assistance by the previous attorney. He offered to handle my case and I graciously accepted. Throughout the entire process Mr. May kept me informed, personally contacted me with information and made sure that I didn’t have the burden of dealing with insurance companies. He and his entire staff made the process painless. In addition, even though I was only concerned with having my medical expenses paid, Mr. May notified me there would also be a check addressed to me personally. I wasn’t expecting to hear that but was thrilled none the less.

If you ever find yourself in a situation in which legal representation is required, I highly recommend and strongly suggest that you contact Christopher May. There was never a doubt he always had my best interest at heart. He absolutely exceeded my expectations.[/us_testimonial][us_testimonial author=”LaVona Smith” company=”Client”]It is with great pleasure that I provide this testimonial to Attorney May and his team! From the beginning of my case Attorney May has thoroughly communicated each step of this tedious process. The office staff ensured all of my concerns were addressed with an open and honest answer and there was not a decision made in my case that without my knowing. The attorney made sure to communicate each and every action that took place and acknowledged that I fully understood what was going on before finalizing any decisions.The transparency, patience and genuine concern of Attorney May and his team is what allowed my experience with this legal team to be above and beyond my expectations. I am so thankful for the hard work and dedication that the attorney dedicated to me during our time working together. Thank you so much![/us_testimonial][us_testimonial author=”T. B.” company=”Client”]I would like to say, thanks from the bottom of my heart, for helping my son, Chris, with his case.
Thank you and your staff, they are the best. [/us_testimonial]

[us_testimonial author=”Joyselena Pearson” company=”Client”]In 2013, I was referred to Attorney Christopher May for representation in a case. My child injured his arm while in a before school program, at an elementary school in our city. The injury to my child was pretty bad. I sought representation because I did not feel that neither my child, nor I were being treated fairly. After consulting with Attorney May, and his meeting my son, he felt compelled to help us and gave us hope. I am so grateful. What impressed me about Attorney May is that he is a Christian man; he is patient, kind, and fought very hard for my son and me. Mr. May went above and beyond what I believe and/or think any other attorney would have done to be sure our case was resolved. Mr. May explained every step of the way what the next course of action would be, right up to the end. He stayed in regular contact with me regarding new updates, or if he needed further information from me. We were made to feel like family, not just another client. Mr. May is very competent as an attorney and works very hard for who he represents. I thank God for this man, because he aided me in seeking justice, making the wrong into right, which is something I could not have accomplished on my own. I would highly recommend him to anyone for counsel.[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”Tony Ramsey” company=”Client”]I, Tony Ramsey, had the privilege of having Mr May and his law firm represent me in an accident that occurred. My experience was very well represented. When I started working with Mr. May, I was worried, because I had never worked with a lawyer before. As time went on, Mr. May assured me that he would take care of everything. When Mr. May was in court, the staff was very helpful and professional. Mr. May and his firm helped me in a way that I had never experienced before. Mr. May and his firm were very genuine. Mr. May and his firm did an extraordinary job. I would recommend that if you need representation, to call Mr. May, because he will truly get the job done for you.[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”T. B.” company=”Client”]I met Christopher May several years ago after a car accident. I was a passenger in a vehicle that was rear ended by an underage driver talking on a cell phone. My injuries were to my left side requiring Doctor’s care and physical rehabilitation. Shortly after that I was injured on my job, a computer cord had fallen and wrapped itself around my foot, so when I stood up it tightened causing me to fall backwards landing on a hard cement floor.

When I called, Chris, regarding my work related injury I really didn’t expect him to take this case. It was very complicated, (two injuries in a short time) and on the surface didn’t appear to be winnable to me. He explained what the down side of the case could be. He was extremely honest, (which I appreciate more than he knows). He also explained NC Workman’s Comp laws; the up and down sides and what I could expect.

The company I worked for was totally unconcerned about my injury. They hired a law firm whose sole purpose is to keep employers from being held responsible for workers injured on the job. Their tactics include intimidation, threats and, denial of medical procedures, all of which kept Mr. May busy with the legal mumbo jumbo and maneuvers this corporate law firm kept throwing at him. Frankly I was amazed at his ability to thwart each and every tactic they used to force an early and inequitable settlement to my case. He insured that every right afforded my by the State of NC as an injured worker was upheld.

One important note I would like to make here … Chris May did not get rich off my case (either one of them.)

When my case was finally settled, with a great deal of satisfaction on my part, it was a huge burden lifted off my shoulders. I felt that Mr. May had taken a seemingly on win case, to a just ending and he did it in a way that upheld my dignity as well as well as my rights.

But the icing on the cake is when his same company tried to block my unemployment claim further down the line, he handled that hearing pro bono… I got the feeling, though, he never said so, that he felt his company was reacting, still, to the shellacking he gave them during the course of my case.

I have already decided that if I win the lottery that I would retain Mr. Chris May as my family attorney for whatever legal issue that arose. Simply because he has the versatility, intelligence, and most importantly the sense of justice needed to tackle any legal challenge that would adversely impact a person’s quality of life.

One other note, Chris has THE VERY BEST STAFF IN THE WORLD. They always made me feel welcome, and added to that feeling I was the most important client they had. So thank you Chris, and staff for all of your support, energy and commitment.[/us_testimonial]

[us_testimonial author=”Kyra M. Johnson” company=”Client”]My name is Kyra Johnson and I met Mr. May in 2006. I firmly believe that nothing in life is by chance and meeting Mr. May was the start of a new friendship. I have truly grown to appreciate and respect Mr. May and the efforts of his staff. Rosie is a godsend. I have never met people that cared more about you as a person as well as your personal welfare than they cared about money. Mr. May creates time to talk with you as well as develop a relationship with you. I am proud to say that choosing The Law Office of Estwanik & May, PLLC is one of the best decisions I have ever made. They have become family, and I feel totally comfortable and confident in their capabilities. They are prompt in responding, they immediately get on the job and will not stop until your voice has been heard and you are satisfied.

I was in a bad situation last year and really broke down in the office and to know that they have a heart for people and took time to listen and understand what I was going through as well as providing encouraging words made me walk out of that office with my head held high knowing that things would be better. The honesty, care, and integrity displayed exemplified true character which is so needed in society today.

The staff is pleasant and there has never been a time that I was treated rudely or disrespected. I am thankful to have such a wonderful attorney and friend. I will forever be grateful for all that The Law Office of Estwanik & May, PLLC has done for me and will never take my service anywhere else. If you want results, Christopher May is the best man for the job.[/us_testimonial]

[us_testimonial author=”S. England” company=”Client”]After being charged with a very serious offense, I did not know where to turn as I had never had to have a lawyer represent me. After speaking with many, many firms, I chose to go with The Law Office of Estwanik & May, PLLC and I was very pleased with their services. From the very first phone call there was no leaving voicemail after endless voicemail and no speaking with secretaries without a law degree. Instead, I spoke directly with Christopher May. The legal advice, the sincerity and support that both he and Chris Bryant gave me I will never forget.

As most people, I wasn’t financially prepared for an attorney and I found out quickly that with limited money most attorneys I spoke with were not willing to work with me. However, this firm represented me, even went to trial and made me feel that money was never an issue. Of course the moment that you are charged you feel embarrassed, angry, nervous and confused. Fortunately, this firm took all that away for me. The feeling of having an experienced, caring, passionate attorney standing by my side every step of the way was very comforting.

In the end this firm went to trial with me, fought for my innocence and won the case. I have since referred this firm to everyone that I know. In fact, my friend just used them for a speeding ticket and was just as pleased with their services as I was.

Whether it is a case that’s small such as a speeding ticket or a much larger case such as mine, I strongly recommend this firm to anyone. I thought we lived in a world where people like this no longer exist, thank you guys for restoring my faith, for being there for me, for taking all my phone calls and making yourself available to answer any questions that I had (and I do know there was many) and most of all for believing in me going to trial, working out a payment plan for me and proving me innocent.[/us_testimonial]

[us_testimonial author=”T. T. ” company=”Client”]My family would like to thank The Law Office of Estwanik & May, PLLC for the awesome services provided. Our son was 6 years old when he slipped and fell on black ice at the apartment complex where we lived. Due to the neglect of the management team for not taking all proper precautions for inclimate weather, our son sustained a laceration to his chin which required stitches and left a scar. Christopher May was referred to us by a previous client of his and from there, we won a settlement of $30,000 for our son, who is now 8. He walked with us from the first to the final step. I would refer and recommend The Law Office of Estwanik & May, PLLC and Attorney Christopher May for all services. We are happy for our outcome.[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”Trudy Butler” company=”Client”]I was hit by a drunk driver in 2008. I thought I could handle my case on my own but I had no idea how overwhelming the process would be. I was referred to Christopher May after I had been searching around for a lawyer. I was told that Chris would go above and beyond the call of duty to help me in the case; that was an understatement. Chris became my lawyer, counselor and cheerleader. There were many times when I didn’t know what course of action to take. He was right there to point me in the right direction. Regardless of how busy he was, he always took time out of his day to return my calls and give me rational advice. I am forever thankful for his services and highly recommend him.[/us_testimonial]
[us_testimonial author=”J. D.” company=”Client”]In early 2011 I decided to get my driving privileges restored, after not having a North Carolina driver’s license in over 16 years. I went to a couple of different Attorneys, and wasn’t very satisfied after my consultation with them. Then a buddy brought me to Christopher May’s office and he told me that he would do everything in his power to help me get my license back. I had quite a few old tickets in Wake County and a few in Gaston County. Chris made some calls and pointed me in the right direction to get those tickets resolved. The last step to restoring my driving privileges was my DMV hearing, where Chris May personally represented me. Chris did an outstanding job. I got my driving privileges restored as he said I would and I couldn’t be happier. Choosing Christopher May has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. Chris May is not just an attorney that is representing your case, he is an attorney who truly cares and will fight for you. I cannot thank you enough Chris.[/us_testimonial][us_testimonial author=”Brittney Cason” company=”Client”]Chris May started out as my lawyer, but by the end of my case he was a friend. Someone whom I could confide in and trust with matters most important to me. He not only won my case, but coached me through the entire process, which in my case took years, since we went to trial…and knocked a speeding ticket I got off my record in the meantime. He’s a one stop lawyer shop!

One thing I admire about him as a lawyer is his sincere, adamant attempts to help clientele that can’t help themselves. He’s not one of those ambulance chasing lawyers, he’s more of a philanthropist within the judicial system. His clients are not paychecks to him, they’re people. And he is a lawyer for the people!

Having the pick of any lawyer in Charlotte, I went with Chris May.[/us_testimonial][us_testimonial author=”Amy O’Connor” company=”Client”]Christopher May and The Law Office of Estwanik & May, PLLC were easy to work with and extremely helpful. I found Chris on the internet and wasn’t sure what to expect. Chris immediately took over my case and provided a swift response to my legal needs. He was kind and caring and made sure we understood all our options and their consequences. Chris cut through the legal muck in the court system and brokered a workable solution for us. Thank you everyone at The Law Office of Estwanik & May, PLLC![/us_testimonial]

[us_testimonial author=”Josephine Manson” company=”Client”]In March of 2009 my son was scheduled for brain surgery. For several years he had been troubled with severe headaches and bounced around to many specialists who all came up with a rare condition called Chiari Malformation. Bradley had lost several years of schooling and had to be home schooled due to him being so sick. There were days when he could not get out of bed and other days that he could not function like any normal teenager should. Bradley prepared himself for the surgery, he had his pre-op done and I had my time scheduled from work to take care of him. Three days before surgery I was notified that our insurance company had refused to let him have the surgery and was told we would need to appeal.

I did just that….appealing to California then Arizona as requested…still Bradley’s surgery was denied.

It was at this time that Chris May stepped in and wrote a letter on Bradley’s behalf requesting that new brain scans should be looked at and a new decision be made. The insurance company took on board what Chris requested and within weeks Bradley was operated on. Thanks to Chris May, Bradley has made a good recovery, so much so that he now attends University in Florida and for once is getting on with his life. I will be eternally grateful for what Mr. May did for my son.

Thanks Chris for everything![/us_testimonial][us_testimonial author=”T. W.” company=”Client”]I am so thankful for the job that Christopher May did on my DUI case last year. I had over three other lawyers who worked on my case that I was not happy with. But when I hired Christopher May, he immediately reassured me that we would go to trial and I was found Not Guilty! He did a great job working the facts of my case. He was so professional and his staff was awesome. I would highly recommend that anyone with a DUI case call Christopher May today, he will get your case settled in your favor![/us_testimonial][us_testimonial author=”Kevin Chandler” company=”Client”]My name is Kevin L. Chandler and I have known Christopher May since 2004. I can say that Mr. May has always been very professional and sincere about helping me with my legal issues. I have traveled to Charlotte, NC to meet Chris on several occasions, and each time I was always impressed because he is always stepping it up to the next level; improving at his best and driven by pure passion for the love of his craft.

The one thing that I harp on is HONESTY. With Chris, if he wasn’t able to help you, he knew somebody that would; which just shows that he genuinely cares about his clients and not just a paycheck.[/us_testimonial]

[us_testimonial author=”Lee Wade Joyce” company=”Client”]I would like to thank Mr. May and his law firm for the way they handled my case and for the way they treated me every step of the way.

I would highly recommend The Law Office of Estwanik & May, PLLC to any friend or family member who has been involved in an automobile accident or injured on the job.

Sincerely,[/us_testimonial]
