    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Bob West from the day he first came to Auburn to practice law and feel I know him and his ability very well. Over the years I have worked on cases both with Bob and against him. Bob is the lawyer I personally turn to for assistance on complex real estate problems. I also know his reputation as a skillful lawyer in the lawyer community in South King County and North Pierce County and can attest to the fact that his skill as a real estate specialist is unmatched. He is known by all other lawyers in our area as being honest and holding the highest ethical standards. I am proud to endorse Mr. West.
