A Buffalo Personal Injury Law Firm You Can Trust

Richmond Vona isn’t your typical personal injury law firm. We respect our clients too much for false promises, and we carefully review and vet cases in their interest. That means, we only take cases that have the potential for a successful outcome as opposed to putting clients through years of litigation with no results.

Our firm is committed to providing:

Fully personalized legal representation

Open and honest communication

Care, compassion, and respect

A results-oriented focus

At Richmond Vona, we always put the interests of our clients above our own. Our legal team is prepared to do whatever is necessary to get you the full and fair financial compensation that you deserve—whether that is through settlement negotiations with an insurance company or negligent party, or at trial where we fight for a successful verdict.

After all you’ve been through, you deserve to have someone fight on your behalf while giving you the individual attention you deserve. When you entrust your case to our skilled personal injury attorneys, you become part of the Richmond Vona family; you are not just another case file.
