My divorce was very ugly and painful which causes stress that makes decision making far more difficult. Mr. Westover was a very good listener and source of encouragement along with his sound advise. On numerous occasions he guided me through the best options for me when I was filled with rage and couldn't think clearly. He was more than an attorney to me, he became a counselor and a guide. His sound advise and knowledge of the legal proceedings allowed me to settle my divorce quickly. His billing practices are very fair and honest. I will certainly recommend Mr. Westover to anyone who is unfortunately facing divorce.

It's an awesome start. The office is both empathetic ( refreshing) and actually quite confidence building. Great communication so far. We are just getting started in this legal services experience.

I needed to switch attorney's to finish out my divorce. Andrew was referred to me by my prior attorney. He quickly came up to speed on my case and put in place a plan to finish out the case in short order -- it had dragged on for almost two years. While the opposing side used emotion and drama in their court filings, etc -- Andrew was fact based and used the full extent of the law to develop our strategy for getting this case to closure. Andrew listened well to my concerns and focused on getting those concerns addressed so that any future issues would not be subjected to the same inappropriate tactics from opposing counsel. I would highly recommend Andrew! He's an A player in my book.

Andrew and Hector were retained to help me in an international move away custody battle.
Their professionalism, attention to detail, and knowledge of the law, as well as ability to find expert witnesses have been outstanding.

Andrew settled my case extremely favorably even though the other party had the winning hand.
He looks to settle and does work at avoiding a lengthy court case.
I had two other lawyers on this case prior to Andrew. He excelled.

I entitled this Stand and Deliver as that is exactly what Mr. Westover did for my case. To offer a pretrial assessment of the potential for an outcome is a challenging requirement for any attorney, but Andrew and his firm delivered exactly the decision they proclaimed that seemed likely from the outset. It wasn't mere speculation on their part or merely hocus pocus to tell me a best case scenario of their abilities, but their knowledge of the contemporary local community standards and an established rapport with the opposing counsels approach to the case itself. In all, I can't rate Andrew and his firm with anything but an impeccable review and was elated to see they delivered exactly the disposition they said would most likely be possible in my case. Thanks and gratitude are mere words on my part, but extremely satisfying RESULTS by Mr. Westover are what stand as REAL to someone wishing to engage his services. I would recommend him to ANYONE that wants a truly dedicated professional that will act like a friend in your corner!

A few years ago Andrew's firm represented me in a custody trial and most recently Andrew represented me in a child support modification case. Initially, I had *thought* this was just a simple child support modification as I had 100% visitation and thus I respresented myself, I mean, how hard could it be? To explain the situation, I show up to court and the father lied on his Income and Expense and the judge was not asking for any proof about his claims to hardship (he lied about medical bills for his other child) and then with no legal explanation, she deviated from the dissomaster thus dropping my support by 20% based on unfounded lies! As soon as the initial hearing was over, I walked out and called Andrew because I needed a professional to represent me in what was becoming a battle. I explained to Andrew what had happened and what my intentions were. He told me honestly it was not worth pursuing because the money I would make up would not cover the cost of what we had to do to prove father was lying. I appreciated the fact that Andrew outlined that for me prior to moving forward with the case, which, I did decide to do and we eventually settled satisfactory. Being a professional in the high tech industry, I appreciated Andrew's work ethics and communication style, he is easily accessible via email and phone and his response times are very quick, beyond expectation. In dealing with the opposing counsel, he was professional yet firm, not afraid to call out the inconsistencies and had greater legal knowledge than the opposing counsel, he really shined in front of the judge. He holds himself with a quiet but firm gentleness. I had a sense of collaboration and partnership with Andrew, he listened to my concerns, which ones I desired to be brought up to the judge and he delivered spot on! Overall, if you require an intelligent, analytical, excellent communicator in your lawyer, I highly recommend Andrew.

Andrew Westover is such an amazing lawyer, I cannot say enough about him. He helped me get custody of my children, not just once, but also a second time due to a hiccup in the case. That's not an easy task, considering Santa Clara County tends to be partial to mothers. Andrew has represented me in a few custody hearings and a few child support hearings (with another one coming up next month). Andrew knows exactly what he's doing. He knew what documentation and evidence would be necessary to prove my case to the mediator and the judge. He put together an impressive, very well-organized file filled with these documents, and presented it to the mediator. I went in for an emergency screening at 8am and came out of the courthouse with both of my kids at 5pm! I'm still in shock that we were able to accomplish this, and I know there's no way this would have happened without Andrew. What I value most about his work is that he operates on honesty and truth, and he has the children's best interest at heart. Many lawyers out there would be willing to lie for you, even falsify information to win the case, but not Andrew. I appreciate that so much about him. He's very intelligent, extremely knowledgeable, detail-oriented, and sharp as can be. He's completely trustworthy; I know that I'm in good hands when I go into any situation in family court. This peace of mind that he is able to give me is absolutely priceless. I've found a lawyer for life, I would never want anyone else to represent me in court. He's truly the greatest lawyer you can hire, so look no further!
