Alexis attended Creighton University School of law with only one career path in mind – advocating on behalf of hardworking employees. Her love of employment law was inspired by her grandmother, a 37-year union secretary who brought Alexis to her first picket line in a stroller.
A tenacious litigator, Alexis has trial experience in state and federal courts in Nebraska, including acting as lead counsel in two federal jury trials and arguing before the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. She has advocated on behalf of clients before the Nebraska Equal Opportunity Commission, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and Westside Community School Board — once representing a teacher in a 16-hour, one-day public hearing.
Alexis is proud of the results she has obtained for her clients, but win, lose, or draw, Alexis’ primary goal is to approach every client with honesty, compassion, and respect.
Alexis lives in Omaha with her husband, TJ, and their two kids, Carolyn and Gregory. TJ teaches at Duchesne Academy, which allows their kids to enjoy “summer with dad” every year. In her free time, Alexis likes to do art projects with Carolyn and Gregory, and sample local restaurants on date nights with TJ.
