West Family Law Group is pleased to announce that our founder, Richard West, has once again been ranked by Super Lawyers among the Top 50 attorneys practicing in the Orlando area. He has been named to the Orlando Super Lawyers Top 50 List every year since 2018. This particular list was drawn from a wide pool that includes not only highly-rated attorneys practicing family law but those in all fields of practice.
Being named to the Top 50 List for Orlando is a great honor because the selection is based on ratings from experienced attorneys as well as the opinions of clients and legal experts. Receiving this honor for six consecutive years demonstrates the respect Richard has earned in the legal community.
“I believe the award reflects not only on me but on the strength of the team at West Family Law Group,” Richard notes. “We work together to find solutions that serve our clients’ best interests in every situation.”
Super Lawyers ranks attorneys based on a multi-stage process. Attorneys must first be nominated by their peers or experts. Then they are evaluated based on 12 indicators of professional achievement and peer recognition. This includes:
After the evaluation process, the candidates with the highest ratings are reviewed by top-rated attorneys in their practice area, and those with the highest rankings are selected for the Super Lawyers Lists.
Richard West earned his place on the list through a combination of expertise, reputation, and results. While receiving this distinguished award for the 6th consecutive year in Orlando Flordia, he has also been on the Super Lawyers list for over 15 years. He is board certified in Marital and Family Law, which requires evaluation of competency and experience by the Florida Bar and recognizes an attorney’s special knowledge, skills, and proficiency in the law as well as professionalism and ethics in practice. Richard understands how to handle complex, high-profile cases and how to shield clients from overly-invasive discovery practices. While skilled in sophisticated discovery and litigation tactics, he also pioneered the use of collaborative practices in family law. Over the years, he has helped families find the right resolutions without unnecessary emotional or financial strain.
“I hope this award will help call attention to the success that can be achieved through the collaborative divorce process,” he observed. “As attorneys, we can advocate effectively and protect our clients’ interests without wasteful animosity and competition. Working together can provide results that allow everyone to walk away satisfied.”
Richard is grateful to his peers and clients who nominated him and for the colleagues who evaluated his achievements and proficiency so highly. “I am grateful for the continued support,” he concluded simply.
The team at West Family Law Group is taking this opportunity to renew our commitment to excellence in service to our clients and to the field of marital law. As always, if you ever have any questions or need assistance, contact us at any time.
