Victor P. Kademenos

"Victor, when you become a lawyer, handle every case as if it was your own or your mothers and you will never go wrong. You will always do the right thing."

For 60 years, Victor’s father's advice has stuck with him. It’s guided him as he has fought for appeals, as he has stood up against the unending resources of major corporations, and as he has relentlessly pursued the results his clients hope for and deserve.

And it’s why when other attorneys tell you there’s nothing they can do, Victor pushes harder. When others see barriers they can’t surmount, he sees opportunities to get creative. No matter how steep the odds, nor how long the journey, Victor doesn’t give up. His reason is simple: It's the right thing to do.

Since taking over as senior partner of the firm in 1991, Victor has recovered millions of dollars for his clients. From occupational diseases and work-related PTSD to wrongful death cases and amputations due to work-related injuries, Victor has seen — and settled — it all. He’s fought appeals up through the courts, won in landmark Supreme Court cases, and negotiated life-changing outcomes for his clients.

But while his opponents will comment on his relentlessness, his clients notice first his ability to put them completely at ease.

Victor isn’t the kind of lawyer who jots down the facts and disappears for weeks on end, only returning to get a signature on a settlement. He involves his clients in every step of the process, listening to their concerns, coaching them on the best course of action, and making them feel comfortable despite the complexity as they navigate one of the most difficult times of their lives.

As personal injury cases and the workers’ compensation system have grown more complicated, Victor has grown more determined. He knows the system is stacked against his clients, that the big corporations will do whatever they can to avoid offering rightful compensation. He knows his clients are struggling physically, emotionally, and financially. And he knows his work can help injured people put their lives back together.

Even after decades in the field, Victor feels the same rush every time his clients get the results they deserve. Your case is his case. Your win is his win. Because just as his father instructed from the start, every client is family.
