Great Service
I had to file for chapter 13 and Michael West handled everything with first class friendly service. I am very happy with the outcome of my case and won't hesitate to hire Mr. West again if the need ever arises.

Grace and Gratitude
On the heels of a nasty divorce, I had to visit with Mr. West and file the dreaded bankruptcy in order to keep my home, car & other essentials intact. I walked in his office feeling impeccably defeated and a little embarrassed, to be honest. He counseled me on my options, answered all of my questions, emails were always answered timely, someone always answered the phone in the business hours, I can go on and on and on about how amazing Mr. West and his staff are, but go see for yourself.

Good Bankruptcy Attorney
Mr. West makes a difficult situation much easier! He handled my bankruptcy, quickly and provided me with good advice. When you call the office, you actually get to speak to your attorney. He is very knowledgeable, personable and caring. I recommend Mr. West for a quality, hassle free attorney! In fact, I have hired him for a different legal matter.

Six out of five stars.
Mr West was always easy to reach and quick to respond. He had our best interest at heart. If there were 6 stars, he would get them all.

Husband and I contacted Mr. West via his website, he googled up as "Best Attorney" in our area and outside as well; it was very late in the evening. After emailing our situation, he emailed back and we set up the appointment. So impressed of the response to the lateness of the hour and his offer to help, we set up the face to face meeting the next day; we felt immediately relieved before we ever met with him; a huge weight off our shoulders, definitely our "guardian angel. We retained Mr. West December 2014. He returns every email/phone call in a more than timely manner; he is very knowledgeable and guides one through all the steps that will occur during ones case. We are in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy; plan was immediately filed and he has been on top every step of the way. The Attorney that is on his staff that attends the 341 meetings for him is also Awesome. Mr. West may be a very busy Attorney, however, he knows what he is doing and those on his staff are very knowledgeable also; very on top and up-to-date with ones case. We are treated like a person, not just another case or number in a book. Michael West is the ONLY Attorney my husband and I will ever retain as our attorney; it is a comfort and we sleep better at night just knowing he and his team are there to help us. In our opinion, Mr. Michael West is the only Attorney one should seek for advice/help for any concern. He is flexible with all aspects of the law. He made our lives better and he will make yours better as well. His fees are much less than other attorney's and more than reasonable. He deeply and sincerely "CARES" about his clients and their situations. We appreciate him very much and HIGHLY RECOMMEND MR. MICHAEL WEST, JR!

He really seems to care about his clients-
I have worked with many attorneys before. Mr. West seems to be one of the most client focused that I have seen. He charges less than most of the attorneys in town and promptly and personally returned my calls when I called him with a question. He even responded quickly to e-mails that I sent after hours. I would highly recommend Mr. West to anyone that needs a good and personable attorney. In fact, I have already referred a client to him.

Very Satisfied
I worked with Michael as a client. He advised me off all potential legal outcomes of my dispute before I used his service and promptly offered to assist. Additionally, he ensured that I was provided the highest level of service. I would recommend him, as he provides personable service to ensure that not only is your case resolved, but you are satisfied

Bankruptcy with Mr West was a breeze
Well we filed early summer 2014. When we filed I was worried that we would have problems with debtors and we did but Mr West handled them with no problems he is the best lawyer out there and he will in the future handle all my lawyer needs. Any one looking for the best bang for their buck should use Mr West for Bankruptcy or any thing where you want to win the case.

excellent lawyer
Micheal west is a excellent attorney. He represented me on my 3rd possession of marijuana case and he exceeded my expectations. He was very attentive to my case and the outcome was better than i could have hoped for considering this was not my first conviction. His price was very reasonable compared to other lawyers i spoke to and im positive nobody could have done better. I will recommend him to anyone who needs legal help. He is definitely the attorney you want in court with you

Att. West is very attentive. He coached me throughout the entire process which meant a lot to me. He has gain my trust and I will definitely call on him if needed in the future. I recommended Michael West to my family and friends because of the knowledge he possess during my case.
Posted by Katlin | June 1, 2012
Without Michael's help, I'm sure my fine for my super speeder ticket would have been much more than I could have afforded and I would have lost my license. I'm overly grateful! I had gotten a super speeder ticket coming into Atlanta. Mr. West was very helpful on the actual court date and leading up to. I ended up only having to pay a fraction of the fine and no points on my license. The actual day of court, he was there to meet me before and already had all the paperwork ready for me. The plea bargained deal was great and so was his service. I'd recommend anyone that needed his help.

I didn't feel like a valued client
I saw lots of great reviews on Google for Mr. West and so I met with him. Initially I was impressed by him and the way my bankruptcy was going. His office would return calls and provide the information I needed, but then again, as much as I was paying for my Chapter 7, I would hope that would be the case. The most disappointing thing about the whole process was my hearing. I felt that this was the most vital part to my cases success. When I showed up to my hearing I looked everywhere for Mr. West but he never showed up. He sent an attorney that doesn't even work with his office, and in fact upon further research, doesn't even live in Newnan, to handle my hearing. I would have expected that from an big Atlanta law office, but one of the reasons I went to him was the fact that he was a local lawyer in a small firm that promised personal service. In the end my case was successful but instead of feeling like a valued client, I felt like I was just another paycheck for Mr. West.

Response from Michael West January 30, 2015
Thank you so much for the feedback. Its sometimes difficult to hear negative feedback but I really appreciate it. It is my intentions to always give incredible service, in your case it appears I failed. I would like the opportunity to personally apologize for your experience and work to make it up to you. Every client's experience is very important to me. I am glad your bankruptcy case was successful, and I really enjoy helping my clients get a fresh start.
