Alexa L. Martini
Alexa was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1990. She attended Greater Atlanta Christian School where she graduated high school. Alexa was motivated by academics, and knew that one day she would be in the legal field. Alexa also was an avid Equestrian from an early age, a passion she shared with her mother, where she earned several regional, state and national titles.
Eventually, Alexa moved to Tampa, Florida to attend the University of South Florida. USF holds a place in her heart as this is where her parents first met. Her dad moved to Tampa as a graduate student and her mother moved from Miami to continue her degree in biology. Her parents eventually settled down in Johns Creek, Georgia where her father still currently resides. During her time at South Florida, Alexa was an active member of Delta Delta Delta, serving as aide to the Recruitment Chair. She graduated with her B. A. in Psychology which was a degree that she felt would help her in her legal studies and later in life as an attorney.
Upon graduation from college, Alexa moved back to Georgia where she would then be accepted to Faulkner University’s, Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in Montgomery, Alabama. During her time at Faulkner she was an active member of Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity, serving as a Chairman, Women’s legal Society, Student Animal Legal Defense Fund, as well as the and advocate for the elderly through the Elder Law Clinic.
While pursuing her law degree, Alexa was involved in several internships and clerkships around the Montgomery area. Most notably she worked alongside the attorneys and staff of the Alabama Department of Personnel where she engaged in bill drafting on behalf of the Department. Additionally, Alexa has worked for firms protecting the elderly by drafting wills and trusts for personal matters, businesses and even farms. She has now shifted her focus to assist those in need of bankruptcy and social security disability assistance. She has discovered that this has become the most rewarding experience of her legal career.
Alexa believes that her urge to serve others came in part from her mother, Rhonda. She always told Alexa, “names were very important.” The name Alexa is Greek and means “helper of mankind.” Rhonda was right, names are very important as this name would eventually help solidify a passion of Alexa’s. Whether it was aiding the handicapped through hippotherapy, to serving as a volunteer for the Best Buddies Program, to serving on several boards during her law school career, she has always loved and valued helping others. This desire to help coupled with patience has become crucial in her career. She finds that the old adage of “you catch more bees with honey,” really is true and a motto she pledges to live by. This motto lends itself to her desire to be a zealous advocate and extremely client focused determined to receive favorable outcomes for her clients while maintaining a cheerful yet humble disposition. Alexa is also an animal advocate and proud owner of a Toy Poodle, Dolce, and an American Eskimo Dog, Luciano.
Today, Alexa lives in Montgomery, Alabama. In her free time she enjoys taking her two dogs to the dog park, traveling the world, and cooking for family and friends.
Alexa is an active member of the American Bar Association, the Alabama State Bar Association and the Young Lawyers Association. She is also admitted to practice in the Middle and Southern Federal District Courts of Alabama.
