Keith T. West


Keith Thomas West has worked exclusively on behalf of the wrongfully injured, driven by a passion for justice and a respect for the dignity and rights of his clients. Mr. West handles catastrophic and complex civil lawsuits which routinely settle or achieve jury verdicts of between six and eight figures. Mr. West’s past successes include cases involving severe and catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, consumer protection, medical malpractice, products liability, whistleblower actions, criminal torts, civil rights, contract and business disputes, and the Federal Tort Claims and Federal False Claims Acts.

Mr. West is licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the State of New Jersey, and the United States District Courts for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the District of New Jersey. Previously, Mr. West served as Judicial Fellow for the Honorable Mark I. Bernstein of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, and clerked for the Honorable Gary F. DeVito of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, and practiced law at other major Philadelphia plaintiffs’ firms.

Mr. West graduated cum laude from the Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law, where he was active in a number of public service groups, including serving as president of the American Constitution Society, where he oversaw the organization of approximately one-hundred scholarly events. Mr. West is active with the American Association for Justice, the Pennsylvania Association for Justice, the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers’ Association, and the American Constitution Society.

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Mr. West has gradually come to follow Philadelphia sports teams, and outside of work most enjoys spending time with his young son. Asked once by his son what he does for a living, Mr. West explained, “My job is to make grown-ups who did something wrong say that they are sorry, even when they don’t want to.”
