Victoria L. Clemans
Attorney at Law
Victoria is an experienced litigator and has done numerous trials with winning results. She has worked in the courts for almost 20 years, helping people solve their legal issues.
Victoria is not afraid of zealous advocacy for her clients. For example, just last year, Victoria did a seven-week jury trial on a sexual assault case, which included two counts of sexual assault and three counts of domestic violence along with a false imprisonment charge and petty theft. Her client's former attorney did not go through the plethora of evidence. Victoria makes it a point to go through every piece of evidence and fight for obtaining the evidence because "the devil is in the details.” Victoria and her team won the case against two prosecutors! (And the prosecutor in the black robe...) But the good news doesn't stop there.
Victoria usually gathers a team of experts and investigators when needed to get to the bottom of the issues in the case and to find the weaknesses in the people's case. Together, they work tirelessly to get the best result possible, which sometimes includes earning a dismissal through judicial diversion if trial is not something the client wants to do. After all, it is vigorous, exhausting, and usually involves the client taking the stand in their own defense (something Victoria will help you with if needed), and it is always a risk because the client is then subject to cross-examination.
Victoria has handled over 2,000 criminal cases and specializes in domestic violence and sexual assault. Victoria has also taken on Title IX cases. With her background in criminal defense, it is the perfect recipe for a winning result.
