Prior to joining Tucker Arensberg, P.C., Alexandra clerked for the late Honorable Judge John A. Zottola of the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas, where she wrote opinions and was involved in the Allegheny County Veterans Court. While clerking, she researched how to reduce Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder triggers for incarcerated veterans, which was then implemented in the Veterans Pod at the Allegheny County Jail. She also served as a Certified Legal Intern with the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office and litigated non-jury trials against criminal defendants.
Alexandra is passionate about litigation, as demonstrated through her knowledge of evidentiary and discovery matters. As a research assistant to Professor Jane Moriarty of Duquesne University School of Law, Alexandra updated and fact-checked portions of Scientific Evidence (6th ed. 2020) (LexisNexis/Matthew Bender). She drafted pre-trial motions and conducted discovery on a million-dollar personal injury claim in Illinois federal court, which resulted in a favorable settlement for her client.
In an increasingly global environment, Alexandra can bring a worldly perspective to her clients. She is fluent in Russian and studied at St. Petersburg State University in St. Petersburg, Russia during her undergraduate studies and at Southwest University of Political Science and Law in Chongqing, China and Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China during law school.
She volunteers with immigration pro bono events and plays the violin in her spare time.
