After acquiring invaluable experience at one of West Virginia’s largest personal injury law firms, Brooks noticed that many West Virginia personal injury law firms seemed to prioritize profit over people. That’s what inspired him to establish West Law Firm in 2010. Since that time, West Law Firm has stayed true to its mission to deliver each client exceptional, compassionate service coupled with impressive financial results that each client deserves.

West Law Firm has since become one of West Virginia’s top-rated personal injury law firms. We have a proven history of assisting victims wrongfully injured at work, in natural gas mining accidents, trucking accidents, car accidents, on dangerous property, and from other negligent acts.


Brooks graduated on the Dean’s List from West Virginia University in 1996, and subsequently earned a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in 2004, decorated with numerous awards. For example, Brooks was named to both Thomas Jefferson School of Law’s Dean List and the National Dean’s List in 1999 and was awarded the American Jurisprudence Award in Torts (Personal Injury Law) for achieving the highest grade in his class.
