Amelia W. May


Amelia W. May works in the firm’s civil division, where she handles family law, employment law, and civil litigation matters.  Prior to returning to Albo & Oblon, LLP, soon to be known as May Law, LLP (where she served as a clerk throughout law school), Ms. May spent several years with her own solo practice focusing on a range of transactional matters including business and employment issues as well as wills, trusts, and estate planning.  Prior to her work as a solo practitioner, Ms. May also spent time representing clients in personal injury matters.

Ms. May’s range of experience involving numerous practice areas is invaluable to her clients, as complex litigation matters often cross multiple disciplines.  She is able to navigate such matters with ease and achieve the best possible results for her clients.

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Amelia May lived in Southern France throughout her youth and went on to study French and History at The College of William and Mary.  After receiving her MA in French from Penn State University, Ms. May worked briefly in Paris, then pursued her law degree at night at George Mason University School of Law while working full-time for an international non-profit organization.  This work frequently took her to French-speaking Africa, where she assisted in election observation, democracy-building and women’s political initiatives.

Amelia W. May resides in Lake Ridge, Virginia, with her husband and three children.  She volunteers as a running club coach for her children’s elementary school, and also at the kids’ weekly Chess Club meetings.  She has served as an appointee to her county’s Board of Social Services, volunteered for many years as a board member and officer of SAVAS (Sexual Assault Victims Advocacy Services), and will soon represent the Occoquan District as a member of Prince William County’s Strategic Planning Committee.”
