Alecia was raised in Lake Oswego, Oregon. After graduating from Jesuit High School, she attended Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, where she earned her BA in Communication & Spanish. After graduating from college, Alecia spent a year working as a legal assistant at Davis Law Firm in Beaverton, Oregon. She went on to complete her law degree at Seattle University in 2012.
Following Alecia’s graduation, she determined that she wanted to pursue a career in family law. Alecia has assisted individuals with effectively navigating the complicated and foreign family law legal process since she passed the Oregon State bar in September, 2012. She also represented allegedly mentally ill individuals in civil commitment hearings for three years, which allowed her to develop a firm understanding for both the challenges that mentally ill people face and the mental health system in Oregon.
Alecia understands that domestic relations disputes are one of the most challenging experiences that her clients will ever encounter, which is why they need effective and diligent legal representation. Alecia believes that the foundation of a meaningful attorney-client relationship is communication. Alecia listens to her client’s priorities and concerns, puts together a detailed plan with the client at the onset of the case, and zealously advocates for the client’s objectives throughout the entire proceeding. Regardless of what the client’s goals may be, Alecia will ensure that steps are quickly and effectively taken to meet the client’s objectives and to negotiate a beneficial settlement or to present a winning argument in court.
Alecia enjoys spending her free time outdoors. Biking, hiking, skiing, kayaking, as long as she’s active, she’s happy.
