about Ike Westfall
No two cases are exactly alike, and Ike Westfall wouldn’t have it any other way. In fact, he relishes the hunt for nuances and details because he knows they often lead to successful outcomes.
Focused on construction defect and personal injury cases, Ike believes in the power of understanding client objectives through open lines of communication.
His detail emphasis and client contact skills have always served his clients well, especially when cases erupt quickly. He once successfully defended a manufacturer in a breach of warranty/defect case with just one week’s notice.
Ike is admitted to the practice of law in all state and federal courts of Ohio, West Virginia and Indiana, and has practiced extensively and gone to trial in all three. He also serves as chair of the litigation practice group at Isaac Wiles.
