Victoria Alford joined Arnold & Itkin in 2011, where she currently handles her own caseload while guiding almost all our newest clients through the litigation process. When people call us, the first person they speak to is often Victoria. Our firm's largest cases start with her, including a record-setting $87 million settlement for a young man injured in a work accident.
Her role in the lives of her clients is often deeply personal. Numerous clients have asked her to visit them in the hospital or in their living rooms, the most personal and private spaces a family could have. She is humbled and inspired by their trust every time—it’s their trust that drives her to bring them justice and help them rebuild their lives.
Victoria has helped secure many of the multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements at Arnold & Itkin for work accidents, offshore disasters, and 18-wheeler collisions. She assisted our firm's partners with some of the firm's largest results, including a $72 million settlement for the victim of an oilfield accident and a $12.6 million settlement for an employee who lost both legs in a work accident. She also provided much-needed support for the widows and families who lost their loved ones in the sinking of the El Faro in 2015.
Prior to becoming a lawyer, Victoria had already dedicated her career to serving others. She started her career in public service, working for a State Senator and eventually moving to Washington, D.C. to join the staff of a U.S. Congressman. While there, she felt that there was more she could be doing to make people's lives better. She eventually enrolled in law school.
At South Texas College of Law, Victoria earned awards and accolades such as the American Jurisprudence Award in Family Law, among others. She also clerked for the 234th District Court in Harris County before becoming a law clerk for Arnold & Itkin LLP. After she earned her law degree, she joined our firm as an attorney.
Victoria has been named one of the "Top 40 Under 40" by the National Trial Lawyers Association since 2012 for her work with Arnold & Itkin. Victoria has also been included in the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ list from 2016 to 2018.
Victoria met and married her husband Nathan while she was in law school. They have a young son together. She spends her time actively contributing to the community, both on her own and as a key part of the Arnold & Itkin Foundation's community service initiatives.
