A boutique law firm founded by Former Miami-Dade County Court Judge May L. Cain and civil trial attorney William J. Snihur, Jr.

CAIN & SNIHUR is a full service boutique law firm founded by former Miami-Dade County Court Judge/family law attorney, May L. Cain, and her husband, commercial and probate attorney William J. Snihur, Jr. We can help your family in times of need.

Whether you need assistance with marital and/or custody issues, domestic violence, the incapacity or death of a loved one, or the purchase and sale of your business, we are here to help.

WE LISTEN TO YOU

Our goal is to provide our clients with personal attention. When you call, you speak to a partner — not to an associate or paralegal. We listen and can help you through challenging times. We care enough to provide you with a free phone consultation.

WHAT WE DO

We provide a wide range of legal services, advice and representation, and focus on these key areas:

FAMILY LAW — Complex family law matters throughout Florida, which often include domestic violence, child custody and child support, relocation, alimony, equitable distribution, post-judgment proceedings and modIfications, domestic partnerships, criminal matters, DCF investigations and high net worth divorces. Our services also include paternity, time-sharing, prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements.

COLLABORATIVE FAMILY LAW — While some matters are high conflict and cannot be resolved without court intervention, there is a growing trend to choose to work out differences in a more congenial and amicable setting. This can be accomplished through voluntary participation in a collaborative family law setting. Collaborative Family Law includes the participation of collaboratively-trained professionals who assist the parties in solving their problems in a non-adversarial manner.

WILLS, TRUSTS, HEALTHCARE SURROGATES, POWERS OF ATTORNEY — No one likes to deal with the thought of their own mortality, but doing so takes the burden off of loved ones. We can advise you in the best way to preserve your assets for you and your family and ensure that your wishes will be carried out. Whether you need a simple will or a complex Trust, Power of Attorney, Living Will or Healthcare Surrogate, our firm can provide you with the level of comfort you deserve.

PROBATE AND TRUST ADMINISTRATION & LITIGATION— When you need us most, we're here to help navigate the probate court process and details of property distribution to you or your loved ones and any disputes that may arise.

GUARDIANSHIP — If it becomes necessary to manage the financial or healthcare needs of a loved one or minor, a guardian may have to be appointed by the court. We can ease the burden and guide you through the guardianship proceedings.

BUSINESS AND CONTRACTS — Buying or selling a business? Going into partnership with your best friend? Forming a corporation or other business entity? Or, maybe it's time to disassociate yourself from a business deal gone bad! Call us. We provide our clients with personalized solutions to their business needs.

CIVIL LITIGATION — Want to sue or are you being sued? You need the right representation. Someone who will look at your case in a creative way and give you the advice you need. Be it corporate, complex litigation, business disputes, breaches of contract, clergy abuse, domestic violence or construction litigation. We'll assess your situation and provide you with our professional advice.

CRIMINAL LAW — We have handled cases in the trial and appellate courts in Florida, including capital death cases in the Florida Supreme Court, where we had convictions and death sentences reversed. From misdemeanors to felony cases, we take each matter seriously and zealously defend your constitutional rights.

MEDIATION — As a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator, May L. Cain can facilitate a settlement in the most difficult family cases.

APPEALS & EXTRAORDINARY WRITS — Our firm has handled ground-breaking cases that have resulted in favorable decisions for our clients. We handle appeals and extraordinary writs in all Florida state courts and administrative matters.

    May helped me during a time where my world was turned upside down. I am a victim of domestic violence who felt extremely ashamed of the life I lived for the past 18 years. I felt hopeless, alone and scared for the change that was going to affect my life and my children. May was able to guide, advise, protect and reassure me when I needed it most. Having such a powerhouse on my side made me feel confident, strong and capable (something I had not felt in a very long time). I feel blessed.Thank u

    Legal cases can be exhausting, emotional, and costly. May’s knowledge of criminal law and prior experience in the field played a big role in my case. Because of this she was able to navigate through issues with ease. As a victim of domestic violence, at times I was fearful of standing up for myself. May made me feel safe and reminded me of my courage. I will be forever grateful for her strength, poise, and expertise.

I would trust Ms. Cain with any legal consultations and would gladly work wth her again if the need arises. She has my full confidence.

    I was out-of-state and dealing with a messy situation. I had spoken to at least 15 attorneys before finding Cain & Snihur. After our initial phone call, there was no way that I could pass-up on their obvious extensive expertise, candor, and the sincere concern they showed for my welfare. In fact, of our possible strategies, they recommended the one that clearly yielded less profit for them, but the best outcome for me. And then to see them in action, and their amazing results . . . I was in awe.

    May Cain is amazing!! I was going bankrupt with an incompetent attorney that was allowing opposing counsel to continue frivolous and vexatious litigation ($150K) for the last 3 years. May was recommended to me. She met with me, asked for a flat retainer and got to work. In 4 months, she was able to negotiate a new parenting plan and close out the case to my complete and utter satisfaction. May Cain has brought peace of mind back into my life and is a true credit to the legal profession.
