Commercial law varies from state to state and can be quite confusing if you have relatively little experience in business litigation. Everything from purchasing real estate to the foreclosure process is governed by certain types of legislation that can feel overwhelming to many.
Certainly, when contract breaches are involved, which is a common occurrence in commercial law, each party involved might feel in the right, resulting in more confusion and potential financial burdens. In order to successfully claim breach of contract, the plaintiff in any real estate law case must prove four things:
- The actual formation of an enforceable contract
- Proof that the plaintiff performed the designed duties outline in the enforceable contract
- Proof that the defendant breached a part of the contract
- Proof that the defendant's breach resulted in some form of actual damages
Unless a party understands its contractual and statutory rights, that party will find it difficult to effectively pursue a claim for breach of contract.
If you would like to know what contractual and statutory rights you have, please contact the Law Office of Tony M. May, P.C.

If you're running your own business and you do not have a knowledgeable commercial lawyer working on your side, you have a much higher chance of getting in legal trouble. Commercial law is extremely complicated and there are so many confusing aspects of business that become part of business litigation, which is why it i's essential that your company finds a qualified, trusted, and hardworking business lawyer to work with you.
Here are a few things you should look for when searching for a trusted business lawyer.
Are they experienced?
Talk to each prospective lawyer about their past experience. Go over the lawyer’s individual experiences, both successful and unsuccessful, and find out how they did. If the lawyer appears well versed in your type of business, you should be fine, but if they are too inexperienced, and are unaware of important aspects like workers comp, which 74% of states require all businesses to have, it might be a sign that you should continue your search.
Do they seem prepared?
Preparation is key in just about any type of business law case. Talk to them about their approach to specific cases and how they prepare. If you think they can gather enough pertinent information, they are probably a great match for your company.
Are they showing a general interest in getting to know you?
If your business lawyer doesn't seem like he or she has any interest in actually knowing you or your business, that attorney might not be very helpful in future legal issues or cases. You and your lawyer should have at least a friendly working relationship so that conversations can flow freely and each situation can be handled as quickly and effectively as possible.
Are they aware of their competitors?
If your prospective business lawyer isn't aware of their competitors, they might not be aware of what the best way to handle specific situations might be. Likewise, your business lawyer should have plenty of knowledge on the industry as a whole, not just on the legal side, either, so they can be ready for any legal situation that might arise in the future.
Are they punctual, organized, and professional?
If the lawyer you're working with isn't organized, is always showing up late, and doesn't seem to act too professional around other employees or clients, you should probably continue your search to find a trusted business lawyer. Lawyers don't have to be serious 100% of the time, but make sure they are organized and know how to act in an office setting.
If you want to speak with a trusted business lawyer who is well aware of the intricacies of commercial law, both transactional and in litigation, please feel free to contact the Law Office of Tony M. May P.C. today and schedule an appointment.

Navigating real estate issues can be extremely difficult if you're inexperienced. There are so many different types of contract provisions that you need to be aware of, as well as to know what to do in specific situations. This is especially true with the area of law surrounding Landlord/Tenant Issues.
When it comes to Landlord/Tenant Law, there can be so many complications that lead to Court. Because these real estate issues are so complicated, you should understand as much as possible about your transaction, your buildings, and your contracts. Here are some frequently asked questions regarding property law in Nevada.
- When should I contact qualified real estate lawyers? --If you're involved in any sort of property dispute or legal issue and you are not sure what to do, the first thing you should do is contact a trusted real estate lawyer. If you are not careful, you may give up rights you have or put yourself in a worse position that can cost you a significant amount of money and even make you lose your property.
- How long do I have before I can evict my Tenant? -- The answer is: It Depends. According to Nevada State law, Landlords are required to provide their tenants official notices prior to attempting to evict them since Landlords cannot use self-help to remove their tenants. For example, if a tenant does not pay rent by the date the Lease Agreement says rent is due, a Landlord can post a Five-Day Notice to Pay or Quit. If the Tenant does not respond, the Landlord can then go to court and get an immediate eviction notice. If the Landlord responds, the Court will set a hearing and give both parties the right to present their position before deciding whether or not to evict the tenant. .
- Am I charging too much for my security deposits? -- According to Nevada law, Landlords can charge up to three month's rent for a security deposit. If you believe that your security deposits are too high or that they do not equate to less than three month's rent, you should contact your eviction lawyer right away to discuss your options.
- If I do not provide proper notice and refuse to return my tenant's security deposit, can I be sued? -- Yes, a Tenant can sue its Landlord for failure to provide proper notice of how the Security Deposit is being used and for not returning the remaining balance of the security deposit. In fact, a tenant can pursue a claim against the Landlord for up to double the amount of the Security Deposit.
- Can a Tenant withhold his/her rent payment from a landlord? -- The Tenant is legally allowed to withhold rent from a Landlord if the Landlord fails to keep the property in a habitable condition, which includes heating, air conditioning, weather proofing, plumbing problems, etc.... However, if the Tenant wrongfully withholds rent, a Landlord can evict the Tenant for non-payment of rent.
- Does my Lease Agreement comply with Nevada Law? -- According to Nevada law, related to residential leases, Nevada law provides for certain provisions that must be included in all residential Lease Agreements. If these provisions are not included, the Lease Agreement could be void and unenforceable. Therefore, if you are not sure your Lease complies with Nevada Law, you should schedule a time to meet up with a Real Estate Attorney and make sure your Lease includes all of the required provisions. You do not want to find out your lease is invalid after a dispute with your tenant arises!

The man who won my case.
“I had to sue a rouge partner, and consulted with 2 attorney's who advised me my case would be very hard to win, and to better leave things as they were. I got very lucky when a friend of mine recommended Tony May to me. After a 2 hour consultation, he decided my case was worth pursuing. He built such a good case for me, that when the judge ordered both parties to meet and try to resolve the issues at hand, before having to go to trial, my partners attorney was at a loss. We settled, and I got everything I was contesting and more. My partners attorney later admitted to me that sometimes your own clients are your worst enemies. Thank you Tony for a job well done!” William
Exceptional service well adept and professional.
“Mr. May and his staff did an exceptional job in handling my legal matter. I want to take this opportunity to personally thank them in making me a believer that there are still professionals who care. I highly recommend him and his staff .”Cheryline
Instrumental in helping our company deal with what appeared to be a ‘no win’ situation
“Tony and his firm was instrumental in helping our company deal with what appeared to be a ‘no win’ situation. His experience and knowledge of the situation, contract law, and reputation was key to helping us with our dilemma. More importantly Tony read our situation and knew exactly how to proceed. Things worked out as successfully as possible. Without Tony that would not have been possible. We nearly chose another firm. Which would have been disastrous. I am writing this review to help others make a choice that will truly assist them. Thank you.”Vincent K.
