Details

Victoria Wickman is the founder of a boutique law firm in New York City, the Law Office of Victoria Wickman. Her firm is completely focused on medical malpractice and represents clients who have suffered injuries in the course of receiving any type of medical care. She serves clients in the New York City metropolitan area and in New Jersey. Ms. Wickman began her law career by working in a local law office while still attending law school. While there, she handled all the personal injury matters and developed a passion for those that have been mistreated and injured.

Ms. Wickman graduated cum laude from St. John's University in 1998 and earned her Juris Doctor from the St. John's University School of Law in 2001. After graduation, she worked at a Park Avenue law firm as an associate where she served on personal injury and medical malpractice cases. Ms. Wickman worked in this capacity for three years before moving to a prestigious personal injury law firm. While there, she secured numerous multimillion-dollar settlements in cases involving medical malpractice, including failures to diagnose cancer, improper surgeries and improper infant deliveries. This continued success led her to open her own firm in 2009. In addition to medical malpractice, her practice specializes in traumatic brain injury cases and personal injury. As a sole practitioner, she can dedicate her time and energy to her clients. Her office is located in downtown Manhattan.

Ms. Wickman is the Co-Vice Chair of the Medical Malpractice Committee of the New York State Trial Lawyer's Association. She was also given the Pen Award from Governor Andrew Cuomo for her work in having the statute of limitations corrected for cancer patients who were not timely diagnosed. Ms. Wickman is also a member of many other professional organizations, including the Brooklyn Women's Bar Association, the Kings County American Inns of Court, the North American Brain Injury Society and the New York State Bar Association.
