Ohio magistrate here. I see "must" used not all that often, but "shall" much more often; they're synonymous for "You gotta do it." "May" means in the discretion of the affected individual. I agree with Jimmy Chitwood as to "should" being used quite a bit in ethical guidance for lawyers. I also very strongly agree with, and second, Acsenray's advice.

Did you mean, "in its view"?
