“The law can’t solve every problem, but we can work with clients to get the best result possible.”
Phone: (312) 967-7606
A compassionate and trustworthy listener, Alexa Goutos is committed to serving her family law clients as their needs and questions arise, even when that means taking time on evenings and weekends to talk through an issue or concern. While handling all aspects of complex family law matters and litigation including drafting pleadings, conducting research, drafting both objectives and persuasive legal memoranda and preparing for hearings and trials, Alexa consistently displays an evident compassion allowing her to understand her client’s needs on a personal level.
Prior to joining the DSWK team as an attorney in 2011, Alexa joined the Dussias Law Group in 2009 as a law clerk while working on her Juris Doctor degree from the John Marshall Law School in Chicago. Devoting her practice exclusively to family law matters, she has dedicated herself to supporting clients through difficult times and helping them make informed decisions about their futures.
While she would never claim to have the solution to an intractable problem, Alexa believes one of an attorney’s foremost responsibilities is helping a client understand the breadth of his or her choices, for better or worse, so that the client may at least enjoy confidence in having obtained the best result possible.
Alexa’s formal education and practical experiences in international and local justice systems are a few influences shaping her perspective on the strengths and limitations of the law. In the end, her overall goal is to help clients achieve legal resolutions, which also enables them to find personal resolutions.
