West Virginia Personal Injury Attorneys
At West Law Firm, we have a simple mission: provide people who have been wrongfully injured the excellent financial results and caring legal service they deserve. As our client testimonials and FIVE STAR Reviews confirm, we have a long track record of achieving this mission for our clients. Below, are biographies of the personal injury lawyers who help make this happen.
Attorney & Founder
Brooks graduated on the Dean’s List from West Virginia University in 1996. He then earned a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law where he earned the following awards and distinctions:
- Thomas Jefferson Trustees’ Scholarship
- American Jurisprudence Award for Excellence in Torts (Personal Injury Law)
- Thomas Jefferson’s Dean’s List
- National Dean’s List
Brooks then spent several years working for a large personal injury law firm where he helped litigate complex, massive personal injury and environmental lawsuits, like the Nitro Dioxin Class Action against Monsanto. Brooks really enjoyed working to help hold Monsanto accountable for the harms they caused in Nitro, West Virginia while representing most of its citizens. However, Brooks realized he prefers to work one on one with wrongfully injured clients where he can better help them achieve their individual goals compared to representing thousands of clients at one time in a class action lawsuit.
Brooks also noticed that although there were plenty of personal injury law firms in West Virginia, there was a need for a personal injury law firm that would put clients first while providing them excellent, caring service and financial results. Brooks established West Law Firm to satisfy that need.
Staying true to our mission is why West Law Firm continues to be a top rated personal injury law firm with a successful track record of helping people who have been wrongfully injured at work, in natural gas mining accidents, automobile accidents, on dangerous property, and by other acts of negligence.
Brooks is admitted to practice law in a number of state and federal courts including the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals; The State Bar of Georgia, the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia; the U.S. District Court, Northern District of West Virginia; and the U.S. Federal Court of Appeals, 4th Circuit.
Brooks also enjoys financially supporting and volunteering for numerous charities including the Kanawha Charleston Animal Shelter, Manna Meal, and Mission West Virginia. When not working, Brooks enjoys hiking and spending time with his wife, children and dogs.
