Luke A. West

Attorney

Raleigh Office

TEL (919) 873-0166

FAX (919) 873-1814

Born in Columbus, Ohio, Luke moved to North Carolina when he was nine and has felt right at home ever since. Luke’s experience as a non-attorney Social Security Disability (SSD) representative inspired his legal career and affords him a diverse skill set. He enjoys his workers’ compensation practice because it capitalizes on his advocacy skills and allows him to actively engage in a pre-trial practice.

Luke attended Western Carolina University, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science. He graduated cum laude from Campbell University School of Law with his Juris Doctor degree in 2018. While at Campbell, Luke served as an Articles Editor for the Campbell Law Review and the Vice President of the Campbell Business Law Association. He was awarded three book awards and received the Dean’s Excellence Scholarship. Luke was also a round of eight finalist in the Richard A. Lord Intermural Moot Court Competition.

Before attending law school, Luke worked for several years as an SSD advocate for a local firm. He enhanced his knowledge of these matters through UNC’s paralegal program and an educational program for SSD advocates. He handled matters start to finish and represented his clients in administrative hearings. Luke witnessed how mastery of the law could alter the outcome of a case and sought out that fulfillment in civil defense and litigation.

A self-proclaimed family man, Luke has two daughters and is married to his high school sweetheart, who is a teacher in Orange County. In addition to spending time with his family at parks, museums and Emerald Isle, Luke’s interests are varied. He plays guitar in a band, excels at drawing and cooking, enjoys listening to all kinds of music and collects sneakers. His ambition is fueled by the example his mother set for him. Luke said, “her [my mom’s] passion and perseverance inspired me to believe that you can achieve your dreams if you work hard, believe in yourself, and never give up.”
