Protectors of Life and Legacy

At Covington May P.C., we are keenly aware of the times in which we live, and the implications for building wealth in the future.

Artificial intelligence, robotics and the emergence of virtual employment are changing the way we work. Industry no longer promises a livable pay, nor job security. It is becoming increasingly difficult to exchange time for money in this web-resident economy. It’s the reason we focus on protecting the wealth you have amassed.

Our legal services ecosystem is designed to safeguard your well-being, as well as those for whom you are responsible.

With your permission, we draft custom directives to preserve your personal integrity, and autonomy. Our business services will enhance your capacity for entrepreneurship. We work to protect your wealth from the collateral effects of chronic illness, conflict and uninformed decision-making. We facilitate the transfer of your legacy to the next generation, by helping you avoid unnecessary taxes. So, whether you are enjoying the summer of life with young children, the autumn of life focused on abundance, or in the winter of life, living your best life, we have you covered. This is what we love to do, at Covington May.

Our Founder

Reaching Professional Crossroads
Becoming an attorney was not a casual decision for me. After two decades of helping client’s amass wealth, my only professional frustration was the inability to protect their autonomy, as they aged. It was disheartening to watch how easily a client’s wishes could be completely unacknowledged, even in moments of clarity, once it was evident they had entered a state of decline.

R. Terese May, J.D., ChFC ®

R. Terese May, is a licensed attorney with the California State Bar. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (Finance) from California State University East Bay and a Juris Doctor from the Loyola University Chicago School of Law. She holds the Charter Financial Consultant® (ChFC®) designation from the American College of Financial Services and is a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), holding Series 7, Series 63, and Series 65 licenses, among others.

As a retirement planner, I have traditionally managed the most significant funds my client’s control, in terms of size and level of complexity. With this privilege often comes a camaraderie and a “no nonsense” level of communication, that may not exist with the management of other forms of wealth.

I founded Covington May P.C. to meet the changes that life may bring, and help protect what matters: autonomy, wealth and legacy.
