John West

My father was a comp attorney for over fifty years……workers compensation is literally in my DNA. I grew up not only learning how to throw a baseball, but also how to prepare a case and argue a position with passion.

 

For two decades at Hack, Piro, I helped build a statewide workers comp practice representing all types of employers. Open lines of communication and a team approach were keys principles in my litigation strategy. Defending thousands of cases has reinforced my firm belief that the party that is most prepared will achieve the best result.

 

I am excited to be here at Meikle West where a true commitment to cutting-edge technology combined with experience gives us the ability to provide even better and more cost-effective results for our clients.
