  • Allyson Hughes

    I endorse this lawyer. Richard West is the consummate example of professionalism and integrity in the field of marital and family law. I have known Richard over 10 years through my activities with the Florida Bar Family Law Section. Richard is known for being an excellent practicing attorney. Richard, as Past Chair of the Family Law Section, was an astute and effective leader. Today, in addition to practicing law, Richard continues to shape the law by educating new and experienced lawyers as a lecturer and presenter at Continuing Legal Education Programs.
