Albo & Oblon, LLP, soon to be known as May Law, LLP is law firm of Arlington and Fairfax litigation and trial lawyers serving the entire Commonwealth of Virginia. We are a substantial firm with a focus on civil and criminal litigation.

Established in 1995, we have been resolving disputes and solving problems for over two decades.

–Our lawyers are unusual. We are leaders in our state and community.  Some have former experience as a legislator or a judge. Our lawyers include leaders in the bar and community organizations – from homeowners associations to the Scouts.

We teach law to other lawyers (and to judges).Continuing legal education seminars we have taught include topics such as Employment Law, Civil Procedure, E-Commerce, Evidence, Ethics, Legislative Updates, and Criminal Defense.  Please visit our “Seminar Page” for a listing.

We write the practice guides used by other lawyers to practice law. Other lawyers use our practice guides and published articles in their own practices.  

We have hundreds upon hundreds of trials under our belt.  Our attorneys include three former prosecutors.  The trial skills gained as a prosecutor – such as voir dire, evidence, jury selection, motions in limine, objections, closing statements — apply to all courts in both civil and criminal law. 

We are sought by the national media to comment on the law. We have been featured over 100 times in the national media – such as FOX News and CNN.  Please visit our “In the News Page” for a listing or our media appearances.
