We sat down with Victoria to learn more about her background and path to L&W.
What made you decide to pursue a degree in law?
My dad is an attorney. He went to law school when we were kids and watching him inspired me to go into law.
What was your favorite class in law school?
Justice Reform and Innovation. This class was taught by Judge Bennett and we covered very interesting issues regarding the justice system and it was a unique perspective to have a former federal judge as a professor.
Why did you choose Lane & Waterman for your law career?
I went to college in the Quad Cities so I am familiar with the area and have close friends nearby. Additionally, Lane and Waterman has an excellent reputation in the legal community so it was a great opportunity to return.
What is something that we would not guess about you?
I have been to Italy and visited my extended family while there.
