She was appointed Vice Chair of the House Committee on the Judiciary and Civil Jurisprudence and serves as a member of the House Committee on Corrections. Rep.

Over her two sessions in the Texas Legislature, Representative Neave has passed the language of 16 bills into law, including the historic Lavinia Masters Act—comprehensive legislation to address the backlog of thousands of untested rape kits—as well as several bills to address sexual assault in our state, bills to help increase access to higher education and make college more affordable, and legislation that designated June 12 as Women Veterans Day in Texas. The Lavinia Masters Act was allotted an unprecedented $50 million from the state budget to tackle the rape kit backlog.

For her work in the 86th Legislative Session, Victoria was named one of the “Best Legislators” by the Texas Monthly, the “Best of 2019 Texas Legislature” by the Dallas Observer, and “Legislator of the Year” by the State Bar of Texas Hispanic Issues Section.

Victoria grew up in Dallas and comes from a working-class family. Her parents emphasized the importance of education and compassion for others. The daughter of a father with a sixth grade education who had a small TV and VCR repair shop in Mesquite, Victoria became the first in her family to graduate from college and earned her degree in Government and Politics from The University of Texas at Dallas and then graduated magna cum laude in the top 3% of her law school class at Texas Southern University Thurgood Marshall School of Law. Her career as an attorney began with work in a Complex Commercial Litigation group in one of the global top 10 law firms, Weil, Gotshal, and Manges LLP. Now, Victoria runs her own law firm where she represents individuals and businesses in civil litigation and employment law. As an attorney, she has represented a broad range of clients from multinational corporations and small businesses to women and children in civil litigation, family, and employment law.


For the most connected and seamless conference experience, we will be using the virtual conference platform Remo.

This will truly be a unique experience, so we are offering a few options for you to get better acquainted with Remo before the conference begins



Mark Hernandez with TAASA and Deb Butts with TCFV will be available for technical assistance around financial matters during conference breaks. Mark will also be available during the mornings of the 9th and 10th. Deb will be available throughout both days of the conference.

TCFV and TAASA Policy staff will be available over the lunch breaks to answer any questions about Capitol Days and assist with scheduling advocacy meetings with legislative offices. Capitol Days (Feb 15-18, 2021) are a time for advocates and interested Texans to virtually gather to raise their voices with and on behalf of survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence.
