She worked with that firm from 2007 until she joined Morgan & Morgan in 2021. During her career, Victoria has represented plaintiffs in a wide variety of claims and cases, including commercial trucking litigation, products liability, insurance fraud and bad faith, boating accidents, business litigation, premises liability, and automobile accidents. Victoria has been involved in numerous successful pre-suit and pre-trial settlements, participated in several jury trials, and has achieved appellate success in the Alabama Supreme Court on behalf of her clients.
Victoria has a particular interest in serving the needs of clients suffering catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries and quadriplegia. She enjoys taking an active and involved role in every aspect of the cases she handles, from investigating claims to conducting discovery to formulating and implementing legal strategies and arguments to be made in the case. Victoria believes that all injuries are personal and takes pride in the work she does on behalf of her clients.
