Committed to Making the World Better The origin of Vescio Law Firm, P.C. can be traced directly to an eighth grade class, Introduction to Law, which met during lunch hours to discuss landmark legal cases. “I remember reading Brown v. Board of Education and being amazed that nine people could decide that an entire system was wrong, say it had to be changed, and it was changed. I immediately decided that I wanted to be part of a system that had the ability to make the world better in that way,” says Lynda Vescio. That goal has been achieved and today the firm’s practice areas include commercial and civil litigation, all aspects of domestic relations and family law, guardianship/conservatorships, adoption, juvenile law, probate litigation, vulnerable adult law, employment discrimination and retaliation and appeals. Clients include plaintiffs/petitioners and defendants/respondents. Vescio graduated from Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts with a B.A., cum laude, in 1992 and from New York University School of Law in 1995 with her J.D.. She initially developed her skills in research, legal writing, oral arguments, and trials as a litigator in a mid-sized New York law firm, practicing in a variety of areas including commercial civil litigation and pro bono family law and then during a five year stint at a large New York firm where she earned a senior position among the associates and was part of a team that handled a ten-week jury trial in which a $750 million damage award was sought. Vescio moved her practice to Arizona in 2002 at the Phoenix office of a national law firm and in 2005 she made the transition to government work and earned an “Emerging Star” award in 2006. Opening her own firm was the next logical step in her career. “My firm began with me putting together a desk in the front room of my house. Four years later we have four attorneys and three legal assistants working in an office in the Arrowhead area,” Vescio says. Vescio and her staff focus on serving their clients through flexibility and individualized service. “We can be available to meet after hours or on weekends and we lack “policies” which would prevent or inhibit us from meeting the needs of each client in his or her unique situation. Our attorneys are accessible and our firm provides not just legal advice, but the encouragement and support that are often necessary to handle the stress of being involved in litigation.” Vescio is active in her community, serving with Leadership West and she recently started a pro bono legal education services program at a woman’s shelter. She has also served on the Glendale Citizen’s Advisory Commission on Neighborhoods. Yet it is her law firm, her staff, and her clients that provide the greatest rewards. “Knowing that we have helped a client not just achieve their legal goals but move their life forward in a positive direction with new opportunities and leave behind less positive ones has been very rewarding. Knowing that we helped someone change his or her life in some way fulfills my desire, set in the eighth grade, to see a problem and help change it for the better.”
