Black Srebnick is delighted that Alexa has joined our law firm as an associate attorney. Alexa is a dynamic, creative, and bright lawyer who practices civil and criminal defense in state and federal courts. She earned her undergraduate degree, magna cum laude, from the University of Pittsburgh in 2013. Alexa then graduated magna cum laude from the University of Miami School of Law in 2017, where she was elected to join the Order of the Coif, an exclusive national scholastic society that advances excellence in legal education.
During law school, Alexa served as the Judicial Intern for United States District Judge James Lawrence King, who has presided over the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of Florida for more than 50 years. Alexa also interned at the state and federal public defender’s offices, where she gained courtroom experience and assisted in legal research and drafting memoranda for submission to the courts.
Black Srebnick Experience
Now at Black Srebnick, Alexa has joined the firm’s criminal defense division, defending the firm’s clients against a wide variety of criminal charges in state and federal court.
After law school, Alexa served as Judicial Law Clerk to United States Magistrate Judge William Matthewman, also in the Southern District of Florida. Alexa was responsible for managing half of Judge Matthewman’s civil and criminal dockets, including conducting legal research and drafting orders and bench memoranda on a variety of civil and criminal issues.
After clerking for Magistrate Judge Matthewman, Alexa was invited to join the international law firm Greenberg Traurig, where she participated in commercial litigation, focusing on matters involving contract disputes, business torts, construction defects, employment issues and products liability claims. While at Greenberg Traurig, Alexa undertook the pro bono representation of a federal inmate seeking sentencing relief under the First Step Act and filed a motion for compassionate release on behalf of her client, arguing that the inmate’s unfair and disproportionate mandatory life sentence—under then-existing sentencing laws—entitled him to compassionate release.
