Passionate, Driven and she Delivers
Attorney Plante-Northington represented me in a legal matter alongside another attorney. She is very knowledgeable and experienced in litigation, genuinely cares about her clients, their case and their desire for justice. My experience with her was life changing. Attorney Plante won't tell you what you want to hear but instead what is realistic and true. Sometimes that was difficult for me to accept but was well needed. She also has a strong faith and it is shown in her actions and expressions. In dealing with my case I began to question my faith. Attorney Plante unconciously helped me restore my faith. I will be forever thankful for all that Attorney Plante has added to my life. When my case was resolved I left feeling content and vindicated. She was able to settle my matters with my employer prior to litigation. I would highly recommend Attorney Plante-Northington

Excellent Attorney
Words cannot express the heartache that comes with having to pursue litigation against a company one has faithfully served. This is the place I found myself in when I was terminated after more than 20 years. With the help of a very good friend, I was referred to Victoria Plante-Northington. She listened to my story and felt I had a valid case that deserved to be rectified. I felt what happened to me could easily happen to someone else at the whim of any supervisor with a personal vendetta against an employee. Victoria took the time to walk me through the process, from depositions, to pre-trial hearings to the trial and every step along the way. I must say, the whole legal process is extremely confusing, frustrating, and time consuming to someone who has not had any dealings with litigation. I simply do not know what I would have done without the capable, patient, diligent, and experienced expertise of Victoria on my side. She believed that a wrong had been committed and needed to be rectified, period. My former employer is a large corporation, with unlimited resources. Victoria was not afraid. She simply would not be bullied and never backed down, no matter how many underhanded, unscrupulous tactics they used against us. She is extremely intelligent, focused, honest, and straightforward in all of her dealings on my behalf. I highly recommend Victoria Plante-Northington to anyone that find themselves seeking an attorney who is willing to work tirelessly on their behalf. Dedication and diligence is who she is and I am thankful to have her working on my behalf.

Passionate, smart, and professional
She was professional, direct, and passionate about her pursuit of justice in my case. The settlement she negotiated was more than twice what either of us expected. Fees were well documented and just what I expected. She took on my case with almost no notice and jumped right in.

Awesome Attorney
I’ve had the privilege and pleasure of hiring Victoria to represent me. She built rapport to get a better understanding of who I was, asked lots of questions pertaining to my issue, and took ownership of my case. Victoria is very knowledgeable and savvy. I was very pleased with her work and the settlement at the outcome of my case.
