“When a client puts their trust in us, we are all in. We know that people only call us when the unimaginable has happened—when they’re terribly injured and being taken advantage of. Our commitment is to protect you, your family, and your future no matter what it takes.”


Victoria joined Arnold & Itkin LLP in 2011. In addition to her caseload, she serves as the initial guide for many of our newest clients. When clients reach out to our firm for the first time, one of the first voices they hear is hers. Many of our record-setting cases were for clients guided through litigation by Victoria from beginning to end. It’s common for families to ask her to visit them in the hospital or their living rooms. Their trust is both humbling and inspiring. Victoria uses this as inspiration to keep fighting no matter how difficult a challenge.

In one of her cases, a young man who suffered life-threatening injuries in a plant refinery accident received an $87 million settlement for his recovery. She also helped Kurt Arnold and Jason Itkin secure a $72 million settlement for the victim of an oilfield accident and a $12.6 million settlement for a worker who lost both his legs. During the El Faro case, she provided unwavering support for the widows and families who lost their loved ones in the 2015 disaster. Her work in these cases and countless more has resulted in better lives for hundreds.

Before practicing law, Victoria had already dedicated her life to public service. She worked for a State Senator before joining the staff of a U.S. Congressman. While these were valuable experiences, she wanted to do more to better the lives of others. That drove her to enroll in the South Texas College of Law.

Victoria earned numerous honors at law school, including the American Jurisprudence Award in Family Law. She clerked for the 234th District Court in Harris County before serving as an Arnold & Itkin LLP law clerk. Once she earned her law degree, she joined our firm as an attorney.

For her work with Arnold & Itkin, Victoria has been named to the “Top 40 Under 40” by the National Trial Lawyers Association since 2012. She has also been included in the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ list.

Victoria has a young son and daughter with her husband Nathan, whom she met and married in law school. She remains active in her community as a member and in her role in assisting the Arnold & Itkin Foundation with its community service initiatives.
