How Alexis Helps Clients
Prior to joining Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, Alexis worked as an associate attorney at a prestigious, New York based law firm. While there, Alexis utilized her advocacy and writing skills. Her primary responsibilities involved drafting and preparing various legal arguments, including oppositions to motions for summary judgment and motions to dismiss. She conducted extensive research on state laws, court procedures, and case law spanning an array of topics, which she used to craft compelling legal arguments on behalf of her clients. She also provided recommendations to colleagues on how to address motion responses by thoroughly reviewing and applying case law to individual cases, and in due course, stepped into a supervisory role, overseeing motion practices for a sector of the firm.
In addition to using her advocacy skills on paper, Alexis also applied her advocacy skills off paper. With each case that was assigned to her, Alexis conducted thorough investigations by accessing all aspects of each case and utilizing various techniques and strategies to efficiently achieve the most desirable outcome. Often times these investigations lead to witness depositions, in which Alexis zealously represented her clients.
Furthermore, prior to graduating from law school, Alexis also gained invaluable experience as a legal intern for the Honorable Christopher J. Cerski, Magisterial District Judge for Montgomery County Court in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, and as a legal intern at the Office of the District Attorney in Philadelphia. Both internships provided Alexis with “eye-opening” experiences, where she was granted the opportunity to have an in-depth look at various legal processes and live in-court proceedings, in addition to participating in extensive client interaction. These experiences contributed to the foundation of Alexis’ legal career.
What Clients Can Expect
Often described by colleagues as having an analytical mindset, Alexis uses this mindset to bring a fresh and creative approach to each case and address complex legal issues. Alexis understands that no one case is the same, and heavily focuses on the individual needs of her clients in order to obtain the most suitable outcome in the most efficient manner. The dedication and diligence with which Alexis approaches each case is unsurpassed.
Outside the Office
Alexis enjoys every opportunity to spend time with family and friends. As a native of Philadelphia, Alexis enjoys exploring the city and all the amazing restaurants it has to offer. She also enjoys traveling, writing, and spending time outdoors either hiking in the mountains with her dog, or relaxing on the beach.
