Daniel N. Marx

Before launching the boutique law firm, Fick & Marx LLP, Daniel Marx worked as a litigator in three preeminent large law firms: Foley Hoag LLP in Boston; Williams & Connolly in Washington D.C., and Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP in New York. Most recently, Dan was a partner in the Litigation Department at Foley Hoag, where he worked primarily in the White Collar Crimes and Government Investigations Practice Group.

Throughout his career, Dan has aggressively and effectively represented a wide range of companies, non-profit institutions, senior executives and other individuals in criminal, regulatory and civil matters. He has substantial experience in the financial services, health care, pharmaceutical and technology industries as well as with public and private academic institutions. Dan has obtained jury verdicts in state and federal court for clients as both defendants and plaintiffs. He has successfully represented clients on appeal, including reversing federal and state convictions. Dan has also assisted clients with confidential internal investigations and provided strategic advice concerning compliance matters.

During nearly two decades in private law firms, Dan has maintained an active pro bono practice, defending indigent criminal defendants and civil rights plaintiffs. Over the past four years, along with the ACLU of Massachusetts, Dan represented petitioners who were wrongfully convicted of state drug offences due to the criminal misconduct of two ex-chemists in state drug labs. That litigation culminated in an order by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court vacating approximately 40,000 tainted drug convictions, the largest mass dismissal of wrongful convictions in U.S. legal history.

Dan served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Reena Raggi on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and to the Honorable Allyne Ross on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

Dan earned his J.D. from Yale Law School, where he was awarded the Massey Prize for best client advocacy in the clinical legal program.

For several years, he interned in New Haven City Hall, focusing on innovative drug policy and urban redevelopment initiatives. Dan was named a Harry S. Truman Scholar for his commitment to public service, leadership potential, and academic excellence.

Why Choose Us?

We combine the exacting quality and distinguished pedigree of elite “big firm” lawyers with the personal service and consistent value of a flexible, efficient “boutique” practice.

We founded Fick & Marx LLP to pursue our shared commitment to law practice as a vocation or “calling,” not just a job or business. We passionately represent our clients while striving to change the world for the better, in ways big and small, one client at a time.

We start by listening. We may have seen the issue you face before, but we need to understand your circumstances, your business, your needs, your concerns, and your objectives in order to represent you effectively. When you contact Fick & Marx LLP, you talk directly with us, the founding partners, and we give you our personal commitment to work closely together to achieve your goals.

We have handled myriad types of cases and feel comfortable in any courtroom. That experience is invaluable. But we treat every problem and challenge that clients bring to us as unique, and we strive to confront every new matter with a “fresh set of eyes.” Potential clients often want to know whether lawyers have handled exactly the same kind of case or issue before. As we look back on our careers, however, we have done some of our best and most successful work the first time we ever faced a particular issue. For that reason, even when we have experience in a particular area, we approach every new matter creatively and with open minds.

We never give up. We are committed to helping our clients achieve their goals, and we pride ourselves on delivering hope in cases that other lawyers might consider hopeless. At the same time, we will always give you our honest assessment, even if that entails difficult or unwelcome news. If it matters to our clients, it matters to us. In the end, we just love to win — however our clients define victory.

Jason A. Neville

Born and raised in Wyoming, Jason Neville grew up the son of one of Wyoming’s most respected defence trial lawyers. Jason spent 19 years defending doctors, product manufacturers, oil and gas companies and corporate defendants in injury cases with Wyoming’s premier defence firm. He earned a reputation as a tenacious and respected advocate, able to master the complex medicine and science behind catastrophic accidents and injuries; distilling the facts into a simple and compelling story for his clients and winning with juries.

Jason became disenchanted defending insurance companies and businesses against injured plaintiffs; using his talents against those injured by someone’s negligence. He repeatedly saw good cases sold out cheap because the plaintiff’s lawyer wasn’t willing to try the case or unable effectively to tell their client’s story; a grave disservice to the injured family and a win for the insurance company.

Jason brings his considerable knowledge of the inner workings of insurance and corporate defence to fight for the injured. He keenly understands defence tactics; how they build their case, their weaknesses and how to leverage these to maximise case value and win. Jason’s varied trial experience spans complex medical negligence, carbon monoxide injuries, insurance bad faith, oil field accidents, traumatic brain injuries and high stakes corporate disputes. Jason continues to accept select corporate cases on behalf of small companies unfairly stifled and bullied by big business.

Jason earned a BA in English with a minor in American Indian Studies from the University of Wyoming in 1997; and his JD from the University of Wyoming in 2000.

Jason has served over 10 years on the Board for Make-A-Wish Foundation of Wyoming, twice as its chair. He is a past chair of the Board of Professional Responsibility for the Wyoming State Bar, appointed by the Wyoming Supreme Court, serving two total terms. He teaches across the country on trial practice and strategy. Jason also volunteers his time to teach trial skills at the University of Wyoming College of Law and volunteers for Equal Justice of Wyoming, assisting the indigent find legal help.

Jason is married with a daughter and son in high school. He spends his time outside of work on Wyoming’s streams and rivers fly fishing; and in the mountains training for and running ultra-marathons at the 50 mile and 100 mile distance.

Brooks West

S. Brooks West II is an experienced injury attorney and founder of West Law Firm. He graduated on the Dean’s List from West Virginia University in 1996 and then earned a Doctorate of Jurisprudence from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law with the following awards and accolades:

  • Thomas Jefferson Trustees’ Scholarship
  • American Jurisprudence Award for Excellence in Torts (Personal Injury Law)
  • National Dean’s List

Brooks then spent several years working for a large personal injury law firm where he helped litigate complex, massive personal injury and environmental lawsuits, like the Nitro Dioxin Class Action against Monsanto. Brooks really enjoyed working to help hold Monsanto accountable for the harms they caused the citizens of and around Nitro, West Virginia. However, Brooks realised he prefers to work one on one with wrongfully injured clients where he can better help them achieve their individual goals compared to representing thousands of clients at one time in a class-action lawsuit.

Brooks also noticed that although there were plenty of personal injury law firms in West Virginia, there weren’t plenty that put clients first ensuring that each one receives excellent, caring service and outstanding financial results.

“Brooks established the West Law Firm to satisfy that need.”

Staying true to our mission is why West Law Firm continues to be a top-rated personal injury law firm with a successful track record of helping people who have been wrongfully injured at work, in natural gas mining accidents, automobile accidents, on dangerous property, and by other acts of negligence.

Brooks is admitted to practice law in a number of state and federal courts including the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals; The State Bar of Georgia, the U.S. District Court, Southern District of West Virginia; the U.S. District Court, Northern District of West Virginia; and the U.S. Federal Court of Appeals, 4th Circuit.

Brooks also enjoys financially supporting and volunteering for numerous charities including the Kanawha Charleston Animal Shelter, Manna Meal, and Mission West Virginia. When not working, Brooks enjoys hiking and spending time with his wife, children, and dogs.
