About Alexandra

Learn Alexandra’s areas of practice.

I am a strong advocate for my clients, and I receive great fulfillment in helping people resolve issues and move on from one of life’s hardest transitions. I worked in family court for two years with two different judges prior to practicing, so I have the unique perspective of knowing the ins and outs of the court and how the judicial officer makes decisions.

Responsive and delivered results, Highly Recommend.
Alexandra L. Michelson is a fantastic divorce and family law attorney. From our first initial consultation she explained everything in terms that I could easily understand, and she was able to anticipate situations in advance based on my circumstances. She is extremely knowledgeable and has a command for effective communication, both written and verbal. She was extremely responsive when I had questions on my case, and she was sensitive to my needs. She gave my case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. I highly recommend Alexandra L. Michelson and her firm. Professional, efficient, personable…Great Experience overall!

Trusted Attorney
I had worked with other attorneys before, so had a good point of comparison. Alexandra stood out from the initial consultation as a person who cared and would provide trusted advice to settle my case in a timely manner and that would not increase conflict. Her communication and attention to detail were excellent throughout. She seems to have a great reputation in the family law community which helps move matters along and resolve impasses. The expert she recommended was excellent. Her firm and other staff were great to work with. They have an ethical practice with a good overall process and it was a breath of fresh air.

Fabulous experience
After working with a mediator and getting nowhere, I hired Alexandra Connell. Alexandra took the time to fully learn every aspect of my case. She was thorough and very knowledgeable. Alexandra was forward at pressing other attorney when needed. She responded to every request I made in an incredibly timely manner. I felt totally supported as Alexandra worked to resolve my case. She made me aware of every item as it came up, working with me to be sure I understood every side. The outcome was better and faster than I expected! I am definitely happy I had (and still have) Alexandra on my side!

Firm but fair, excellent attorney
As many people in my similar situation might say....I wasn't prepared to get divorced. I tried suggesting an arbitrator early on but my Ex didn't feel comfortable with that approach. So when she hired an attorney I felt I needed one too. Alexandra was what I hoped she'd be. She looked out for my interests but was also aware of what was reasonable. She spent a lot of time understanding my situation and asking the right questions. I would recommend her and was pleased with the process and outcome.

Staunch, Steadfast & Passionate!
Alexandria and her team are outstanding! I first contacted Alexandria, after I spent a considerable amount of money on another lawyer that got me zero results. From our first conversation, I found Alexandria to be a sharp strategist that truly cares for her clients. Alexandria is concise and very powerful with her words, leaving no stone unturned. She consistently pushed back on the opposing attorney and did not back down. If you are looking for a lawyer who is reliable, is going to fight for you and who will always have your best interest in mind, hire Alexandria!

Divorce can be a difficult transition in anyone’s life and Alexandra had an in-depth knowledge, leverage and resources necessary to handle my complex, high-value marital dispute. She helped navigate me through this significant transition and supported me through the divorce process. Alexandra forcefully advocated to protect my rights through her extensive knowledge of the law and negotiations. Alexandra is very compassionate, considerate and professional. She made the best decisions along the way. I’m very happy with the end results!
