Very professional, knowledgeable, and trustworthy
After contacting several attorneys about filing for bankruptcy, I discovered Mr. Westbrook. He was the only one who struck me as honest and straight forward. Mr. Westbrook made a bad situation manageable. I highly recommend his services over others. I would not hesitate to do business with him again in the future.

The best and tireless
Mr Westbrook and Miss Jessica were not my first choice. I had hired a previous attorney that spent a majority of her time 'out of the office' leaving me to handle questions from the courts. As a result, I ended up having to have my Chapter 13 dismissed and then had to refile. I did a very exhausting search for a new attorney before contacting Mr Westbrook and am OVERJOYED!! Filing a BK once is enough stress, having to do so twice left me considering other more permanent solutions to a temporary problem. Mr Westbrook and Miss Jessica literally talked me off the ledge and got my case filed quickly and efficiently. Even though the winter Holidays played into the time frame, the Westbrook team was there!! I had some questions arise during my payment period including a promotion and raise. Mr Westbrook was able to preserve my raise, answered my emailed questions quickly and in English not Legalese. I have and will continue to refer him to others. My only concern, this man seems to never take time away from work!!

Excellent lawyer
Having Nicholas Westbrook as your lawyer is like having a best friend who happens to know everything about the law. He treated me with respect and friendship, while advising me of the legal tenets of my case. His staff is on top of every detail.

Great lawyer, Very satisfied
Mr. Nicholas is the best lawyer we have ever dealt with. He is very knowledgeable in his field. He always responds to questions promptly. He is friendly, professional, courteous and caring. He makes a frightening and hard to understand topic seem not so bad. We definitely highly recommend him to everyone.

Awesome Attorney
I can't say enough wondering things about this attorney. First starting with his assistant who goes above and beyond to ensure you have everything in order and your nerves are at ease. Then Mr. Westbrook is laid back, yet professional, honest and let's you know up front what you are dealing with. He answers emails personally and never once made me feel just like a client, but like a person who was going though something sensitive. His resume truly lives up to who he is in his profession.

Excellent Attorney
It has been a pleasant experience working with Attorney Westbrook and his staff. He has been very informative, leaving know question unanswered. His staff is always helpful if you call and he's not available, they can pretty much answer your questions to satisfaction. When I communicate via email, his response time is great. I like the fact that he don't always talk attorney language, instead he talk client language so that you understand exactly what your options are. I would highly recommend him to my closest friends.

Competent Bankruptcy and Debt Attorney
I never could have imagined that I would find myself in a position to have to claim bankruptcy. However, after a series of life events that included losing a great job I'd had for 25 years; the need to become a caregiver for two family members; etc., I discovered that the need for bankruptcy can blindside anyone at any time. In searching the Internet for a lawyer, Nicholas Westbrook's listing appeared at the top of page one, so I decided a lot of people were at least looking at his simplistic page. I set an appointment for a consultation. Between Nicholas and his Assistant, Jessica, they made everything easy. From providing me with the required forms and paperwork needed to file, to a list of the personal records I would need to provide to them, they did an excellent job in making this bankruptcy go as smoothly and easily as possible. They took a legal, financial matter that was very intimidating to me and made it very matter-of-fact. They also handled everything with the greatest discretion, which I really appreciate. They literally walked me through this bankruptcy one-step-at-a-time with a bare minimum of my time spent in their office. Items that were incomplete or missing on my part were mostly able to be handled via telephone or fax. If you're looking for a competent firm to represent you in bankruptcy, I can highly recommend Nicholas Westbrook as the attorney to handle your case. You won't be disappointed.

Professional, Courteous and Understanding!
I highly recommend Nicholas Westbrook. I recently experienced a financial setback and had some decisions to make. Mr. Westbrook not only gave me sound advice, he made me feel comfortable in what was a stressful and embarrassing situation. He has been supportive and informative through the entire process. Going into this, I never felt an attorney would actually care about my well being. I was wrong, Nicholas Westbrook cares. He has been fantastic. If you ever find yourself in need of a helping hand, this is the guy to call!

The Best Attorney...Hands Down!!
Mr. Westbrook was an amazing attorney who took the time to explain all areas of my case thoroughly. I came to him after another bankruptcy lawyer took his time with my case and was delaying my process, so I was nervous about moving on to yet another lawyer. However, Mr. Westbrook and his staff was on top of everything and there was never any delays or questions about the accuracy of his work. Bankruptcy is not an easy process to go through but Mr. Westbrook and his receptionist Jessica made every step of the way clear, concise and with consideration!! THANK YOU!!

Great Bankruptcy Attorney
Nicholas Westbrook handled my Chapter 13 filing and he and his staff are friendly and easy to work with. I would recommend him to others.
Posted by Lisa | August 4, 2015
Excellent Service
My experience with Mr. Westbrook was that of excellence. Mr. Westbrook as well as his staff is very knowledge of the processes regarding the services they provide. I was very nervous and upset about having to make such a decision. I called on Mr. Westbrook's assistant Jessica more than a few times to make inquiries about the process, she was very helpful and calming with her responses. I had to go through this very difficult process and Mr. Westbrook as well as his highly competent assistant Jessica helped to understand each step of the process which made me feel more at ease with the decision that I had to make. I only wish that I could get that level of service in all every part of life that calls for major life changing decisions.

Criminal defense Attorney | Sep 08
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I've known Nick since law school at South Texas. Nick always stood out in class as one of the smartest guys and graduated at the top of our class. Nick's brain is perfect for all the bankruptcy and business law that he practices. But I am endorsing Nick because of his personality. it's personality and knowledge that succeed in criminal law, and he's got both. Nick is a very dangerous opponent for the District Attorney. if he can beat you on the law, he will. And if he can't, he will argue it to the jury and charm them into the right verdict. I endorse Nick's continued success in the criminal world."
