Highly recommended
I could not have asked for a better lawyer! He followed my case from the beginning to the end. He is very knowledgeable and quick to reply. Tony West fought with all he had for my case and I can't thank him enough for all he did... He comes highly recommended!

Very involved and passionate attorney
I couldn't be happier with the counsel and representation I received from Mr. West. I've had an ongoing and challenging post divorce legal nightmare. After Tony took over, thanks to his brilliant advice and strategy, it looks like it may finally be over with both parties satisfied. If I am ever in need of an attorney again, you can be sure I will hire Tony. I've had lawyers before who didn't seem to really get involved. Tony truly did. I didn't have to keep reminding him of things; he remembered them and was able to connect the dots because he was deeply involved in the case. I highly recommend Tony West!

workers compensation

A Good W/C lawyer.
Tony is a lawyer that I would recommend for a WC case. He made my WC case as painless as possible. The first day we talked on the phone, he told me what the process was for the case. He kept me informed on progress as it took place. Always returned my call and emails the same day. I will never forget the good job Tony did for me.

WC case involving mold exposure
Tony West took my WC case after two attorneys dropped it. Mold cases are historically hard to prove and even if you win, the payout isn't much. Mr. West decided to try anyway. We settled for a small amount, and I did get my day in court and I consider the journey a success. I appreciate his faith in me and his willingness to take a chance.

Mr. West did a great job for me.
I hired Mr. West for my worker's comp case. He was very detailed knowledgable and informative. Since he was a member of the Indiana Workmanship compensation board, it gives him an edge on other lawyers. I highly recommend him!!

Hired Mr. West
I hired Mr. West about a month ago for a Workman"s Comp case and in my opinion he seems to care about his client and works hard for them. Would I recommend him? Yes I would and I think when this reaches the end he is going to impress me with what he has accomplished. I wanted a lawyer that has actually worked like I have had to do and Mr. West is that lawyer. He is plain spoken and knows what he is talking about and your not bundled in with others. Your a person and he shows you that

I would highly recommend Tony West for legal representation and would not hesitate to use him again.
Tony West handled my divorce this year. I did not know Tony previously and he was recommended by my sister-in-law, who is also an attorney. I found Tony to be extremely professional, helpful, empathetic and very prompt in responding to any questions or situations that were presented in my case. He always made me feel that my case was a priority. We reached a satisfactory settlement rather quickly due to Tony's diligence and good advice. In my opinion, Mr. West is a credit to his profession.

He could have been more aggressive for my case. The Company never released all MD records and correspondence even with multiple requests to do so.
Response from Tony West May 11, 2018
I must not have explained the process clearly enough to this client. I wish that he/she had expressed concern more strongly about this issue to me before agreeing to settle the case. I will take any case to a hearing, if the client refuses to settle. But that can be very risky. Determining value does not always require having every single document created in a case, because the injured worker can tell me what it is and I can determine its value and consider that in settlement negotiations. Some cases have a high risk of loss at a hearing, which must be balanced against what the insurance company is willing to pay to end the case. If I advised this client to settle this case rather than go to a hearing, then I felt the evidence was not strong enough to achieve the client's best outcome, given what the insurance carrier was offering. That decision was not because of a lack of willingness to be aggressive. It was based on 10 years of Indiana work injury experience.
