Richard H. Mays

Richard Mays Law Firm PLLC


To Richard Mays, the “environment” includes everything that impacts one’s quality of life. His practice is devoted to attempting to preserve and protect not only the air, water and earth, but also the social, civic and human elements that make lives richer and more satisfying.

Mays has handled environmental cases protecting the Buffalo River from the impacts of hog-farming, preventing boat docks from crowding Greers Ferry Lake, fighting construction of coal-fired electrical generating plants, opposing unconstitutional tax spending on highway projects and advocating banning the herbicide Dicamba that kills native plants. He also fights for social and civic causes, suing the state for a just reapportionment of voting districts and land developers for poorly planned and implemented subdivisions. In doing these things, Mays takes on large agencies, such as the Corps of Engineers, the Federal and State Transportation Departments, cities and counties, entrenched political interests and corporations that attempt to violate the rights of individuals and small entities.
