Helpful and Friendly
Alexis said to me, "put your worries and anxiety over this process on me. That's my job." I knew I had the right attorney! She walked me through the process of a child custody motion, reassuring me every step of the way. She is always available to answer a question or talk you off the ledge when the unexpected comes up from the other party. AND SHE DID IT ALL DURING COVID-19!! I highly recommend her!

I emailed Alexis just to have a free consultation most lawyers wanted 100 to 250$ just to consult, she said no worries just call for an appointment there is no cost to consult. When I arrived I was nervous she was calming heard my story and was available to help immediately and drew up my documents as I sat there, she actually apologized for me watching her do the document, I was just so grateful it was handled easily without issue and the cost was modest able to pay immediately as well. My daughter passed away and I needed to have guardianship papers drawn up for my granddaughter immediately as she was without a parent it was a difficult time for me but Alexis made it painless. I left her office feeling completely satisfied and stress free.

I saw Alexis for a family matter and when I left her office after the first visit, I knew she was the one who could help me. I was going through a difficult time and Alexis gave me the hope I needed that things would work out. She made me feel very comfortable and is easy to talk to. You can tell she is someone who will fight for you. I would definitely recommend Alexis to anyone for their legal needs.

Powerful Quietly
Anyone looking for a custody lawyer "Alexis Swope" is one of the best if not the best at her field. Alexis voices her opinion and makes herself heard, while remaining respectful of others and does not lack compassion. This makes her effective at understanding the problem and very capable to come up with the solution. When i had questions, doubt or needed guidance she got back to me in a timely manner and was able to take a large volume of information at the time and understand it. When asked unexpected questions during our court hearings, I witness her interpret and respond to them appropriately. I was also impressed on how she also has the ability to form a logical thought that gets her point across. "Quietly Powerful " because I looked at her and I did not think she had it in her then came trial and Boom.

5 star all around lawyer
I recently had a son 4 months ago. The mother of my child was being very difficult in not letting me be part of his life. Did not let me know of his birth. Was a very frustrating time. I contacted Alexis before his birth asking questions on things I needed to know such as my rights! Even before I decided to hire her to represent me she went the extra mile in helping me with my situation. Since then i now have a lot of time with my son and have been really able to bond these past few months. Its still a process but iam very pleased with the determination and effort Alexis gives to make sure i can be a big part of my sons life. I was recommended by a friend from my church and I also checked on a few other lawyers but I had a feeling I would have better success with Alexis and I am very happy with my choice and results. Iam still having her represent me in any future issues and I highly recommend her If you are like me just wanting to be part of your childs life. I was raised around lawyers and know my way around the legal system but dealing with her you can really tell she loves her job, puts in the work and will go that extra mile when you need it most. I cant thank her enough!!

Where do I even begin? With the help of her Secretary, getting an appointment was easy. Any days off for Holidays and such you are notified promptly via email, which is great! Knowing that she has children sure helps to make you feel even more comfortable entrusting her to help you with any situation regarding your own. She is so kind but very stern and tries her best to not ask too much from you. She's up front about what to expect and about what she thinks is the best course of action is for your case. She is easy to talk to and she is quick to defend you and keep you on track if need be. The constant updates and easy to schedule appointments really made going to court so much easier and a bit less scary. I could go on and on about all she has to offer and all she has done for me.. but seeing as this is a review, I shall sum it up. She has been a blessing for my family and without her strong will and determination I do believe my situation would be so much different than it is now. Thank you! Highly recommend. 5/5

Great Lawyer!
Alexis was very helpful in fighting for me in a child custody matter. She was very proactive and engaged in the case throughout. I would highly recommend her for family court. She is knowledgeable and well regarded.

Excellent lawyer
Alexis Sipe is amazing. I have been seeing her for years on my child custody needs. She's is a kind, caring women. She's always trying to save me money instead of making me spend more. She's won me all my cases. While working on my case keeps me updated often. I can tell she loves her job and takes a lot of pride in her work. I would recommend anyone to her.

Unprofessional circus
One don’t make her mad because if you make her mad, then she’ll stop working for you and she’ll start working for the other team. Two, don’t give her any information because she will not turn it into the judge and thus say to the judge that you have no evidence. Three does not follow through on any thing will not file paperwork on time. Will cancel your appointments for her to go to concerts. Does not care about you, nor your family do not use. Before a trial, she will not interview any witnesses . Seriously do not use terrible Lawyer terrible law firm. She is a member of the Satanic Temple, while I employed her she broke at least five out of the eight tenets on my case alone.

What a Joke
She honestly must of paid for the other reviews. Ive had the worst time dealing with her.
Response from Alexis Swope March 25, 2023
Typically, reviews are left by Swope Law clients and our firm never undertook representation of your matter. Despite this, it is unfortunate that you have this perception of our firm. Best of luck to you in your legal matters.

"Alexis is a wonderful lawyer and I referred one of my closest friends to her for divorce and custody and continue to refer clients to her. She's down to earth, easy to talk to, knows the law, fights for her clients but also tells her clients the truth about the pros and cons of their case."
