About the Host:

May Harris has been a pioneer of nonprofit law practice for over a decade, having founded For Purpose Law Group in April 2012. She serves the nation's nonprofit sector with unparalleled expertise, prioritizing her clients missions, visions, and values. She specializes in nonprofit & tax exempt organizations, social enterprise & business law, and estate planning & charitable giving.

May received her undergraduate degree from the University of Utah, before pursuing and obtaining her Juris Doctor from the University of San Diego in 2000. She practiced intellectual property law for a large biotech company for several years before a fateful flyer came home in her son's lunchbox. His school was looking for parents who were licensed attorneys and could form a nonprofit on their behalf. May agreed to form the organization, and then found herself serving as director of its board. With her legal expertise and newfound knowledge on nonprofit law, she realized the nonprofit sector was severely underserved in legal representation. She decided to fix this.

She returned to school, earning her Masters of Nonprofit Leadership and Management from the University of San Diego. With this education, she, along with some of her fellow graduates, founded For Purpose Law Group (FPLG). In the subsequent decade, May has molded FPLG into the “go-to” law firm for nonprofits in Southern California. The firm is constantly expanding its locations and service areas, with the ability to assist organizations across the United States.
