Many of his clients are injured union workers, e.g. boilermakers, elevator constructors/mechanics, cement masons, operating engineers, hod carriers, sheet metal workers, carpenters, ironworkers, laborers and electricians, plumbers and pipe fitters, teamsters, millwrights and sprinkler fitters among others.

Mr. Viadro was admitted to the California Bar in 1992 and to the U.S. District Courts in the Northern, Central, Eastern, and Southern Districts of California in the following year.

He serves on the board of governors of The University of San Francisco School of Law (2010-present). He has been the board’s president from 2016-2018.

Mr. Viadro started his practice as an insurance defense litigator, learning the “ins and outs” of the defense bar. In 1995, Mr. Viadro began to represent personal injury victims and immediately found it more rewarding to represent the injured and aggrieved rather than defend against their lawsuits. He joined The Veen Firm, P.C., in 1996, where he later served as a trial team leader until co-founding Butler Viadro, LLP, in 2009.

Mr. Viadro graduated from the University of San Francisco School of Law cum laude and was a member of the McAuliffe Honor Society; he received his Juris Doctorate degree in 1992.
