Michael West is the law firm’s principal attorney, David’s son and Laura’s husband.
He has over 20 years of experience as a trial lawyer handling major civil litigation, but has also represented clients in estate planning, probate and real estate.
David West is a retired state district judge who founded West & West, LLP in the spring of 1997. He is also Michael’s father.
He has presided over 1,044 civil trials, nearly half of which were trials by jury. Many of these cases were significant and complex and led to the setting of legal precedents.
Laura West is our business manager and mediation coordinator, as well as Michael’s wife. She is very hospitable and incredibly friendly.
She was originally only supposed to help out at the firm for two weeks, but those two weeks ended up turning into a 10-year career with David and Michael.

We won’t try and coerce you into make a decision that pays off more for us because our business is yours. We always put your best interests first and will guide you on the path to get them.
With the amount of experience we have, we know what the best decision for a case is and will guide you through based on it.
We have two generations of experience practicing law, including many years spent as a judge by our very own David West.
We always put our clients first. It’s the foundation of our practice. Tell us what you want out of your case and we’ll get you there.
