Viivi excelled in law school. She graduated in the top 8% of her class as a result of her hard work and abilities. Her impressive class rank was not her only outstanding achievement. In addition, she received the American Jurisprudence Award for Torts, Contracts, and Advanced Civil Litigation Practice and Procedure.

Early Legal Experience – Executive Editor, Author, & Legal Clerk
During her time at California Western, Viivi was an executive editor for the International Law Review. Beyond editing this important publication, she was also a published author in the California Western Law Review.
As a law student at California Western, Viivi clerked at one of the largest plaintiff’s litigation firms in San Diego. She helped personal injury victims while at the firm. Medical malpractice, wrongful death, and physical/sexual abuse cases were a large part of her early legal experience. This defining time period set the stage for her eventual work with Bernard Law Group.
Viivi Vanderslice – A Former Insurance Defense Attorney Knows Best
After law school, Viivi worked as a defense attorney for insurance companies. For eight years, she witnessed the unfair advantage insurance companies have over individuals first hand. This experience provided very valuable lessons for her eventual move to personal injury law. She knows that injury victims only receive fair compensation due to aggressive and skilled representation.
In 2007, Viivi left insurance defense litigation. At this time, she chose to dedicate herself solely to representing injury and accident victims. Viivi shows extreme compassion to her clients because of her time in insurance defense litigation. Very few personal injury lawyers are as dedicated to clients. Her number one priority is obtaining justice for every injury victim she represents.
