Brooks then spent several years working for a large personal injury law firm where he litigated complex, high value personal injury cases and environmental lawsuits, like the Nitro Dioxin Class Action against Monsanto. Brooks then decided he wanted to focus exclusively on helping individuals injured by negligence. He also saw the need for a personal injury law firm that put clients first; thus, he established West Law Firm with the mission to provide each client excellent service and financial results.

Staying true to this mission year after year has earned Brooks and West Law Firm many client testimonials and a five star client rating. Brooks and West Law Firm have established a winning track record of helping people recover full and fair compensation for their losses after being wrongfully injured at work, in natural gas mining accidents, automobile accidents, on dangerous property, and by negligence.

Brooks also enjoys financially supporting and volunteering for numerous charities including the Kanawha Charleston Animal Shelter, Manna Meal, Mission West Virginia, The Carry on Campaign, and other organizations that help children stay active and positively engaged in the community.  Brooks loves his work as a personal injury attorney because it gives him the opportunity to help people while supporting his family and community.

Excellent service for out of state clients
Mr. West's associate David Dobson handled an auto accident claim for me and my wife, and he did an excellent job for us. The accident occurred while we were driving through West Virginia. My wife and I live in a different state and I had called several law firms in West Virginia but West Law Firm stood out because their staff took the time to listen to our story and gave us confidence that they could handle our claim while we lived out of state. I am a busy professional and prioritized a firm that could handle our case efficiently and thoroughly without my active involvement. Mr. Dobson and his team gathered all of the data and did a great job negotiating a fair settlement for us. I would highly recommend this firm.

Highly recommend
I contacted West Law Firm after being in a car accident, they quickly reviewed my case and accepted it. I went through several months of physical therapy, the staff and attorneys checked on me through out my treatment and I was always able to get in touch with them with any questions or concerns I had. After I finished treatment, they were able to quickly settle my claim. I was very happy with the outcome. I live in Virginia and the distance from my residence and their office was never a concern. They put my health and wellness first and foremost, I felt like they definitely cared about me and wanted to get the settlement that I deserved. If you need a personal injury law firm that will put your best interest first, and will work hard for you, contact West Law Firm!!
