Shelby’s long history with motorcycles started in Michigan as a small child when his father would put him on the handlebars of his motorcycle and ride around on open back roads. At about age 6, he graduated to a small Yamaha dirt bike, then a Honda NT650 Hawk GT at 14. He gained a lot of early experience in his backyard, hugging corners and learning to steer with the rear. By the time he turned 16 he was riding his father’s Harley Sportster on the street and his passion for motorcycling was ingrained for life.
At home in the courtroom, Shelby has made hundreds of court appearances throughout Southern California: from the Superior Courts of San Diego and Los Angeles to Riverside and San Bernardino. With his strong background in litigation and his athletic riding style, Shelby was a perfect fit for Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys and jumped in full speed in 2013. Dedicating his entire career to plaintiff personal injury work, Shelby West most enjoys helping riders because they often face the most difficult and complex situations and he finds great satisfaction in helping them conquer the odds. He is known for being thorough, aggressive, professional and highly proactive in his work.
