I was charged with possession of a controlled substance on federal property. The outcome was far better than I could have expected. My biggest concerns were losing my driver's license, ending up with a criminal record, and being put on probation (none of which happened). Thanks to Mr. West, I can put everything that happened behind me and get on with my life.
After a few unsatisfactory consultations with other law firms, I knew right away David West was the right choice. He didn't use any scare tactics, OR make any empty promises in an attempt to get my business like others have done. He and his associates were understanding and very personable.
Mr. West has more experience with federal court than anyone else I found, which definitely shouldn't be underestimated. I feel very strongly that the outcome of my case had a lot to do with the rapport he's built over years of dealing with the prosecution we encountered.
Someone was always available to talk to about any questions or concerns I had. Throughout the whole process I felt like I was in good hands. I slept like a log the night before court.
To top it all off, his fee was substantially more reasonable than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise.
All in all, I was completely satisfied. I absolutely recommend Mr. West's services to anyone looking for the best defense they can get.

First of all, I fired my first lawyer for his lack of effort on my case. I then met with and interviewed a half dozen other attorneys before choosing David West. He and his team helped me obtain a reduced misdemeanor charge with no jail time for what had been a very serious felony charge. He and his team were extremely knowledgeable and professional. I also feel like I was treated with dignity and understanding. I am very appreciative for his help and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of criminal defense.

When people mention the word "Lawyer", it, unfortunately, conjures up preconceived, stereotypical preceptions for most.
Mr. David West will alleviate any presumptive notions you may have, the moment you shake his hand.
I was charged with felony obstruction. I was very nervous at the beginning of my consultation. I quickly became very comfortable speaking with Mr. West. His explainations to my questions were informative and easy to understand. He told me not to worry, that he would take care of everything. Wow, I didn't realize he would literally " take care of everything".
He, and his staff, were with me every step of the process. His office manager / assistant, Beth, is incredible. My eventual outcome was more than I could have hoped for. I proudly recommend his services to anyone. Thank you David West & Associates.

Mr. West was simply the best. I was facing serious jail time for a second dui and would have been without my license for a year had it not been for the hardwork he put into my case. He kept me pretty well informed on everything going on, given some of the more serious cases he also works on. And his staff always had answers for me when I called his office. He was really a great speaker in court and I could tell he was really fighting for me. He also seems to get alot of respect from the prosecutor and the judges as they appeared to listen to everything he had to say.
I saw the review by the other person on here and really can't believe it. Mr. West went out of his way to say we had a tough hill to climb with my case and that he didn't know what would happen when we started but he really worked hard once he got started to make sure I got a great result. His hard work saved my job and my license and I had to come on here to make sure other people saw what he was capable of. Mr. West is a pro and anyone who doesn't check him out before handing their case to someone else is making a big mistake. You will be glad you went to see him. I sure am.

I was arrested for possession of marijuana in GA. The police mislead me into believing that if I were to cooperate with their anti-drug evaluation class (for new officers) that they would simply let me go free. I cooperated and went to jail anyway.
I explained all circumstances to Mr. West. He reassured me that we could go to court and fight the charges because of my special circumstances and the misleading behavior of the police. He said that I would likely be looking at a small amount of community service, at worst, and at best, no repercussions at all.
His ability to spout rhetoric convinced me that he would be the perfect lawyer for my case.
After the first court date, I was given the option to plead guilty and receive 40 hours of community service, mandatory drug screens (that were to be paid by me), a drug/alcohol evaluation (another $300 charge), and over $300 in fines directly to the court.
Mr. West strongly advised me to take the deal, adding that the judge would only get more strict as I turned down these plea offers. At the time I was semi-ignorant of the way the entire system worked and I stupidly took his advice.
He told me what I wanted to hear in the beginning and then (after receiving payment) he pressured me to plea, presumably, because he he had "more important" cases to deal with.
