Professional, Highly Recommended Attorney
I first met Jim West several years ago as a police officer (now retired) when I testified in a personal injury case from an auto accident that I had witnessed. Jim impressed me in how he handled the case in the courtroom, as his professionalism and knowledge of the law was evident throughout. A few year later, while on duty, I was involved in an auto accident and knew I needed an attorney. The first person that came to my mind was Jim West. Jim took on my case without hesitation and handled both the worker's compensation and personal injury cases. Even though my case took over two years to be settled, Jim always kept me informed and communicated with me on a weekly basis. I highly recommend Jim West and would hire him again without question.

Great Lawyer
Jim took my case from another attorney who became ill. Jim did a great job for me on my injury claim which we settled out of court.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have worked with Jim on both sides of the case. In some cases he has represented the plaintiff when I represented the defense, and in others he has been co-counsel with me when we both represented the defense. In both capacities he is a tenacious lawyer who passionately advocates for his clients. He is a legal scholar and a courtroom technician, and has earned a reputation for quality representation and professionalism."
