Past Results

When you work with us, you don't just work with me... You work with my family.

Our practice is quite literally a family. We have Michael West, our principal attorney and his wife, Laura, who is our business manager and mediation coordinator. In addition, there is Michael’s father, David West, who served as a judge in Harris county from 1984 to 1997. We have quite a bit of experience among us and it’s all in the family.

Because we are a family of the law, that’s how we treat you when you come to us. We understand that personal injury cases are stressful and in addition to your finances, you’re worried about your physical recovery.

But estate planning can be just as stressful. No one likes thinking about the end of their life, but the reality is that without estate planning, your legacy is left for the courts to decide without you.

Whether you're in Pasadena or in Houston, we’re always here to take the burden off your shoulders. We handle the legal work so you can focus on living your life. When you leave our offices, we want to make sure that you feel better than you did when you came in. We ease your burden through decades of experience doing what we do and thorough explanation of every step in your case.
