Bridget E. Riley
Car Accident Attorney
Attorney Bridget Riley grew up in Syracuse, New York, where she attended the State University of New York at Geneseo and was a member of the Academic Honor Society. Bridget played two collegiate sports while attending Geneseo: both NCAA women’s basketball and NCAA lacrosse. She was the Vice President of the Geneseo chapter of the Rotary Club and graduated magna cum laude.
Bridget went on to earn her MBA and Juris Doctor from the University at Buffalo, where she graduated cum laude. While in the Juris Doctor/MBA program, Bridget was involved in the Desmond Moot Court program, the Trial Technique program, and the Growing Opportunities for Leadership Development (GOLD) program. Bridget spent eight months living in New York City while she attended the Law and Finance Program through the University at Buffalo School of Law. During law school, Bridget completed a clerkship with Justice, Hon. Tracey A. Bannister in Erie County Supreme Court. It was during this clerkship, when she decided that she wanted to pursue a career as a personal injury attorney.
Bridget is admitted to practice law in New York State, is a member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, and the New York State Bar Association.
When asked what she likes most about her career as a personal injury attorney, Bridget said “I am incredibly grateful to have a career that allows me to work directly with clients on a daily basis. I find each client’s story and hardships extremely motivating. My goal is to always obtain the best resolution, possible, for the client. I enjoy the entire process of Plaintiff’s work-from the intake to the conclusion of the case-and all of the work along the way. Helping guide clients through the process is incredibly satisfying work, as I am able to advocate for many who are enduring this process for the first time.”
In her spare time, Bridget enjoys playing tennis, skiing, and traveling. Since joining our firm, she has traveled to: Greece, France, Italy, Colombia, and Costa Rica. Bridget also loves practicing yoga and spending time outdoors with her puppy.
