Overview

Aleksandra serves clients as both an advocate and an advisor.

Aleksandra knew she wanted to be an attorney from a young age: with strong advocacy skills, she simply couldn’t imagine herself pursuing any other career, and she knew she was meant to be a litigator.

As a law student, Aleksandra served as a Husch Blackwell summer associate, cutting her teeth on asbestos litigation, constitutional work for a pro bono client and general commercial litigation. Since joining the firm as a full associate, she has focused her practice on complex commercial litigation matters, with a special interest in torts-based cases.

Already a gifted writer, Aleksandra’s writing skills were further honed by her advisory and leadership role overseeing candidates and staff editors on her law school’s journal, as well as by her externships with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District and the Cook County Circuit Court. Her externships also left her with excellent research skills as she learned to dig deep into legal questions.

In addition to her writing and research skills, Aleksandra is known as an attorney who makes the practice of law personal. She loves working with people and sees clients as individuals, not as a succession of legal cases. Her goal is for clients to see her as a colleague, rather than as outside counsel, and she strives to work alongside them as a true partner. Her gift for advocacy means she’s always their staunch defender in court—but Aleksandra knows that she’s also there to serve as clients’ consultant, helping them develop legal strategies and choose the course of action that best fits their business needs.

Outside the Office

Aleksandra is devoted to F45 Training in Chicago’s Lincoln Park, a high-intensity, strength-based workout she participates in at least four times every week. She enjoys being outside, whether for a walk, a long hike or simply enjoying the sun, and she’s also a movie buff. Aleksandra especially loves to binge watch comedies and thrillers—the more intense the plot, the better.

When she has time away from the office—whether it’s a longer vacation or simply a long weekend—Aleksandra usually takes the opportunity to travel. She loves experiencing new cultures and hopes to see as much of the world as possible. One of her favorite destinations has been Greece, which she adored so much on her post-bar celebration trip that she came home determined to learn Greek.

Community Leadership

Aleksandra supports Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis after being extensively involved in fundraising during her undergraduate years. Aleksandra served as a member and chair of Indiana University’s Dance Marathon in support of the hospital for three years.
