  • Profile

NOTE: Mikell West is not licensed to practice in New Mexico.

Mikell West brings a wealth of trial and appellate experience to Bandas Law Firm. A Texas native, Mikell has practiced throughout the state and represented clients in front of its appeals courts and the Supreme Court of Texas. He is a tough advocate who is excited to use his experience on behalf of families who have been affected by a tragic birth injury.

Mikell was educated at the St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas. While in school, he also gained firsthand experience as a clerk for Judge Barbara Nellermoe (of the 45th District Court of Texas) and Judge Emilio Garza (at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit). Before joining the team at Bandas Law Firm, Mikell was a partner at a highly respected defense firm in South Texas. With this shift to the plaintiff side of the law, he brings insight that can help us prepare claims that can withstand challenges from insurers.

Mikell is admitted to practice in all of Texas’ state courts, as well as the Southern, Eastern, and Western U.S. District Courts in Texas. He is a member of the Corpus Christi Bar Association; the Texas Aggie Bar Association; and the State Bar of Texas, in the Litigation, Insurance, and Computer & Technology sections.

Outside of work, Mikell stays involved with his family and community: He volunteers for the local high school mock trial tournament and with the Knights of Columbus. He also enjoys woodworking, barbecuing, fishing, and spending time with his wife, Alexis, and their four children.
