Attorney Profile

Attorney Spencer D. West is a co-founder, partner and shareholder with the Mitchell & West LLC law firm, which has offices located in Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, as well as New Orleans, Louisiana. Along with serving a diverse range of clients throughout Broward and Miami-Dade counties, Mr. West holds his license to practice in Massachusetts, and he represents individuals and families in both states who have legal needs involving family law, including all of the following:

  • Divorce, including high-asset divorces
  • Military divorce
  • Child custody and support
  • Relocation and visitation
  • Modifications
  • Paternity and fathers' rights
  • Domestic violence disputes

Although Mr. West represents clients from all walks of life, he has considerable experience representing high-asset professionals, such as physicians, lawyers and retired professional athletes. As such, he is highly effective with regards to complex property division. Furthermore, he has had considerable success devising customized prenuptial and postnuptial agreements to help his clients protect themselves and their assets in the event of a divorce.

A veteran of the U.S. Army, Mr. West also understands the unique struggles and challenges that can affect servicemembers and their families, which makes him all the more effective in military divorce cases. Before entering private practice, Mr. West worked as an assistant public defender with the Miami-Dade Public Defender's Office, so he has a wealth of experience in criminal law.

Mr. West then gained invaluable experience in civil litigation through his positions at some of the most prominent law firms in Broward County. Along with family law and criminal defense, he also handles personal injury and wrongful death claims arising from motor vehicle accidents, cruise ship accidents, dangerous property conditions, defective products, sexual assault and other preventable tragedies. He also has notable experience with commercial and corporate litigation, as well as employment law matters such as discrimination and harassment claims.

Whatever the issue his clients are facing, Mr. West has proven himself to be a tenacious and competent attorney who always pursues the most favorable outcomes possible for those he serves. Recognized for his impeccable professionalism and service, he has earned top accolades from his peers along with numerous testimonials and referrals from his satisfied clients.

A 1997 graduate of Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, Mr. West attended Suffolk University Law School, where he obtained his Juris Doctor in 2001. Along with practicing before all Florida and Massachusetts state courts, he is also admitted to practice before all federal courts in Florida as well as the U.S. Supreme Court.
