Associate

Alexandra places great importance and focus on what each individual client needs and desires from his or her specific family law matter, whether it be allocation of parental responsibilities, maintenance, child support, financial planning, asset division, or post-decree issues.

“I know more often than not, clients are uncertain as to what their ‘best outcome’ looks like for their specific case. It is important to assist each client in working through the particular issues of his or her case to determine that client’s ‘best outcome,’ and to treat each case individually based on the facts and client’s wishes.”  Alexandra demonstrates strength and empathy with each client and is not afraid to zealously advocate for what is in the client’s best interests.

Prior to joining Davis Friedman in November 2020, Alexandra gained valuable experience as an associate attorney at boutique divorce and family law firms in Chicago.  She has successfully negotiated and litigated numerous issues pertaining to pre-decree divorces and post-decree modifications, child-related matters such as attempted relocation and supervision of parenting time, orders of protection, and complex financial issues such as business valuation and determination of parties’ income.

Alexandra has continually pursued every opportunity to further her experience in the field of family law.  Before becoming an attorney, she held an externship with the Domestic Violence Legal Clinic, using her 711 law student license to assist domestic violence victims in obtaining Orders of Protection.

Her passion and dedication to the area of family law transcends into continually representing the best interests of her clients in the most efficient and effective manner.
