S. Brooks West II
Attorney & Founder
Brooks West is a personal injury lawyer with close to twenty years of experience and has been awarded the Martindale-Nolo AV Preeminent Rating. He is also a member of the Multimillion-dollar Advocates Forum, limited to attorneys who have won multi-million dollar verdicts and/or settlements. Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members.
Brooks founded West Law Firm in 2010 after working for one of the biggest personal injury law firms in West Virginia. Before founding West Law Firm, Brooks helped litigate complex, massive personal injury and environmental lawsuits, like the Nitro Dioxin Class Action against Monsanto.
Brooks founded West Law Firm because he noticed that although there were plenty of personal injury law firms in West Virginia, most did not seem to put clients first, ensuring that each one receives the excellent, caring service and outstanding financial results they deserve.
“Brooks established the West Law Firm to satisfy that need.”
Staying true to our mission is why West Law Firm is one of the highest rated personal injury law firms in West Virginia with a long track record of helping people who have been wrongfully injured at work, in natural gas mining accidents, trucking accidents, car accidents, on dangerous property, and by other acts of negligence.
Brooks graduated on the Dean’s List from West Virginia University in 1996 and then earned a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law with the following awards and accolades:
- Thomas Jefferson Trustees’ Scholarship
- American Jurisprudence Award for Excellence in Torts (Personal Injury Law)
- National Dean’s List
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.
