This is difficult. I can't express how much Don West has changed my life. I would have lost almost everything due to one mistake. He not only defended me but he also helped me to get the help I needed to correct the path I was on. I wanted to thank him personally but every time I tried I got too choked up.
Mr West is most professional and very attentive. Nothing left unaddressed. Even after my court date he has been here for me. I owe the ability to not only proceed with my life but to excel. I've been able to receive promotions and get a better job because of the help that Don West has given me.
God bless you sir. Words aren't enough.
