  • David Shepherd West

    B.J. is one of the gems of the Atlanta criminal defense bar and just a fantastic lawyer in all regards. She has a passion for her work that has set her apart from not only her female colleagues but most of her male counterparts as well. Never to be underestimated, B.J. will fight hard in any case she handles and succeed almost every time. I've had the pleasure of working beside her on several cases and can honestly say she is one of the best lawyers handling criminal defense cases in Georgia.
