Austin Wade-Vicente practices as a member of the firm’s Personal Injury Department. He is currently licensed in Virginia. Austin is eager to get to know his clients and fight for their interests.
Austin was born in Anchorage, Alaska, where his father, stepmother, brother, and sister still reside today. However, Austin has spent most of his life growing up in Yukon, Oklahoma with his mother, stepfather, two brothers, and sister. He has, therefore, spent most of his life traveling great distances for the love of family. His journey to Richmond, Virginia, though, was the first time he had been away from any family for more than a few weeks. But what led him here was a sense of passion for advocacy and the law.
Austin graduated from the University of Oklahoma Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in Political Science in 2019. It was there that his experiences as a member of the Sooner Speech and Debate team and as the Vice President of the Gamma Beta Phi honor society that Austin became interested in legal advocacy and service. He then worked at the Oklahoma Tax Commission where he realized his favorite part of his duties was not granting hundreds of tax exemptions but helping and communicating with those in need.
He then made the one-way trip to Richmond, Virginia to attend the University of Richmond School of Law, where he graduated in 2023. It was here that Austin worked at the University’s Intellectual Property and Transactional Law Clinic, where he enjoyed his first legal experience with client advocacy. Austin first came to Geoff McDonald & Associates as an intern in the Summer of 2022, alongside fellow attorney Caleb Thompson. Austin enjoyed his time so much at GMA that he graciously accepted the offer to join the team upon graduation.
Austin is now building his own family in Richmond, Virginia with his spectacular girlfriend Amanda and their Beagle-mix Jameson (he has plenty of pictures, don’t worry). When he’s not at work, Austin enjoys cooking, working out, home improvement, collecting records, and catching up over a phone call or TV show with his best friends Joey, Joe, and Brandt.
