Victoria Alford's Headshot

Victoria Alford has dedicated her career to protecting the rights of victims. Her aggressive approach and skill in navigating complex legal issues have given clients across the country the strength to stand up against the most powerful corporate giants in the United States and win. Victoria’s practice focuses on catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, business disputes, and maritime and offshore accidents.

“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 Alford joined Arnold & Itkin in 2011 and is a key part of our team. In addition to her litigation work, she spends a significant time working with our newest clients. In fact, she’s usually the first point of contact in new cases. She takes pride in making sure clients get the attention they need and the justice they deserve.

Victoria takes every case personally. She knows our clients deserve the best future. As a result, a majority of our record-setting cases have involved clients who worked with Victoria from the first day they contacted our firm—including a record-setting $87 million settlement for a young man injured during a refinery accident.

When clients turn to Victoria for help, they’re often facing the most difficult moment of their life. Often, they’re still in the hospital when she visits them for the first time. During these moments, Victoria sees how families are suffering. She knows we must win the fight because everything is at stake for clients. The trust each client puts in her is both humbling and inspiring. Honoring that trust is a responsibility she takes very seriously.

By never backing down from a challenge, Victoria has secured million and multi-million dollar recoveries for people injured in work accidents, maritime disasters, and truck accidents. Specifically, she assisted our firm’s partners with some of their largest victories, including a $72 million settlement for a client who was severely injured in an oilfield accident and a $12.6 million settlement on behalf of a worker who lost both of his legs.

When Victoria works with clients, she treats them like family. When the grieving families of victims of the El Faro disaster needed help, Victoria was there. She did everything possible to provide the support they needed. Victoria didn’t just do this because they were clients. She did it because it was the right thing to do.

Throughout her career, Victoria has dedicated herself to the service of others. Prior to joining Arnold & Itkin, she lent her talents and resolve to the public sector. First, she worked for a State Senator. Then, she moved to our nation’s capital to serve on the staff of a United States Congressman. While those experiences were valuable, she felt there was more she could do to have a positive impact on the lives of others. That passion is what drove her to attend law school.

Her time at South Texas College of Law garnered Victoria several awards and accolades, such as the American Jurisprudence Award in Family Law. She also had the privilege of serving as judicial clerk to Harris County’s 234th District Court before ultimately becoming a law clerk for Arnold & Itkin LLP. Following graduation, she continued on as an attorney at our firm.

Victoria’s passion and success haven’t gone unnoticed by the legal community. In recognition of her work with Arnold & Itkin, she has been named one of the “Top 40 under 40” by the National Trial Lawyers Association. Victoria was also selected for inclusion in the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠ list since 2016.

Victoria met and married her husband, Nathan, in law school. Together, they have a young son and daughter. She is extremely active in her community and plays a significant role in assisting the Arnold & Itkin Foundation with its many community service initiatives. For Victoria, helping other people remains the focus of everything she does, no matter what.
