A distinguished and highly awarded attorney with noted successes in high-stakes, precedent-setting cases, Victoria gives her litigation, health care, governmental relations and white-collar criminal-defense clients responsive, civil and innovative counsel.

The precedent-setting decision—affirmed by the U.S. Supreme Court—struck down a law that had been considered one of the most controversial and costly for Rhode Island businesses.Additionally, Victoria’s professional and civic service includes important posts: President of the Rhode Island Bar Association; the first woman in Rhode Island history appointed Executive Counsel to a governor; Vice Chairperson for the Rhode Island Parole Board for 20 years and Chairperson of the R.I.
