About Alexandra

Learn Alexandra’s areas of practice.

  1. Divorce and separation
    contested and uncontested divorce, pre-marital agreements, division of assets, maintenance and child support

  2. Family
    enforcement and modification of prior court orders; paternity findings, child support and visitation

Alexandra brings to her practice two vital characteristics: a judgment-free approach focused on helping the client through difficult emotional situations, and years of experience focused on family law issues.  Alexandra has seen it all - from broken relationships as a result of extra-marital affairs, to children who are alienated from their parents.  Alexandra understands that this is a highly emotional time for everyone involved and focuses on getting the family through this difficult time in the best way possible.

Alexandra's achievements have been recognized by several organizations, including being named "Top 40 Under 40" in family law by the National Advocates in 2017, and selected as one of Super Lawyer's Rising Stars for 2018, an honor that is reserved for a limited number of lawyers each year.  Alexandra has also published several articles on the Illinois State Bar Association’s Standing Committee for Women and the Law’s newsletter The Catalyst.

I hope to never have to use a lawyer ever again but if I have to I would with out a doubt reach out to Alexandra Martinez. Every case is different but what we all deserve is fairness and she can get that for you. Separations are horrible especially when children are involved but she helped and guided till the end. She fights for the rights of her clients and the children, very professional!

Quick Service
Alexandra was great to work with. She is detailed in her work, responds quickly and efficiently to emails, and got my divorce wrapped up in no time. She helped guide me through the process and made it seem easy.

Professional and Joyful Counsel
I filed for divorce. I was assigned Alexandra and what a joy it was to have her handle my case. There were several twists in my case. She handled them with ease, adeptness, and with positive results. Alexandra is professional, explained the processes clearly, was timely with email responses and oral communication. My emotions ran high; however, Alexandra exhibited great listening skills. She also kept me grounded with reality and the law. She was always prepared for our meetings and court. Alexandra provided sound advice and answered all of my questions. She asked questions which led me to think about what I wanted to do. She verified information I shared with her that would aid my case and told me directly what was not needed. All petitions were shared before they were presented in court which eased the stress I was experiencing. Transparency was high so I was not taken by surprise when I arrived in court. Her paralegal was always prompt with decisions made by the court, often sent within a couple hours of the court decision indicating whether I had to appear at the next hearing, and also professional in my contacts with her. Her fee, I thought, was fair (I visited with two other lawyers before hiring Alexandra). While my case has yet to be decided, I anticipate continued high-level representation by Alexandra. I am glad I hired Alexandra to represent me. I highly recommend Attorney Martinez!

Extremely Capable Attorney
Ms Martinez was retained after one telephonic consultation. As a client, all the resident requirements for Illinois were met but preferred to remain out of state during the process of the divorce negotiations. Therefore the initial contact with Ms Martinez and subsequent consultations were handled by telephone or email. This in and of itself may not seem remarkable in this day and age but if you factor in her ability to assess the emotional state of all parties through emails and phone calls, ensure everyone's rights are observed, and still negotiate the settlement of a multicultural family, then you can see her task was more difficult than one could imagine. The first personal meeting with Ms Martinez was our day in court and as expected she was confident in the courtroom. Despite the complexities of our case, Ms Martinez was straight forward and explained all possible outcomes in a manner which a person with no legal training could understand. She delivered the desired outcome and then helped close out the process in the County Clerk's office. Ms Martinez can best be characterized as an extremely capable attorney with the ability to help the client see through their emotional state, understand the right legal path, and ensure no one's rights are ignored.

Excellent legal representation
Ms. Martinez represented me in a family support case. It was an absolute pleasure to work with Ms. Martinez. She was a consummate professional. Her preparation throughout this process was impeccable. She thoroughly researched case law which buttressed our argument during the trial. I would not hesitate to use her service in the future and I strongly recommend her should you need the services she provides.

Attentive and professtional
I've had Ms. Martinez as a lawyer for the past 10 months. She is very attentive to my case which turned out to be very challenging. It had unexpected twist and was able to handle each one. The outcome was what I wanted and expected. I would definitely refer her to friends and colleagues in need of representation.

Quality Representation
Ms Martinez was very thorough while working on my case. She respected my request to court and went in with a bulldog tenacity, and made it happen. I would highly recommend her.
