This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Felony suspension means an attorney was convicted of a crime and lost his or her license to practice law.
Richard’s comment: “Unrelated to legal practice. An unfortunate personal circumstance which I am happy to discuss with clients if they have any concerns. This involved carrying a concealed weapon, not legal practice.”

I went with a friend, as a support system, to meet about discussing a bankruptcy. I was pleasantly surprised at how helpful and friendly the staff were. Matt and Rick were extremely supportive. Their genuineness made my friend comfortable and relaxed. With their help, she now sees light at the end of the tunnel.

Like many other people who have struggled financially, we never thought we'd be in the position where we would have to file bankruptcy. Just the thought was embarrassing and, based on what others had told us, we sure didn't want to take the chance of losing everything we had worked our whole lives for. However, our financial situation got to the point where we knew we had to do something. After seeing Rick West's commercial on TV, we could tell he knew what he was talking about so we immediately scheduled a consultation. Once we provided his staff with all the information they requested, they promptly began the process to get our claim filed. From our first meeting with him to present day, he and his staff have handled our case timely and professionally, always answering every question we have in language we can understand and in a way that didn't make us feel uneducated. Rick is a compassionate and knowledgeable lawyer who continually goes the extra mile, always making his client's interest the priority. If you are struggling financially and don't know where else to turn, there is hope--call Rick West and let him help you!!

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I worked with and continue to work with Rick on many issues regarding bankruptcy. He is a great attorney to run ideas by to make sure my advise to my clients is solid. I know Rick to be extremely knowledgeable regarding chapter 7 and chapter 13 issues. I highly recommend him to anybody considering bankruptcy representation.
