As a fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial lawyers and a fellow of the international academy of family lawyers, she has been actively involved in training family law arbitrators, and writing articles on religious divorce issues in North America.
Her private practice involves complex property division and characterization issues, major-conflict child custody/visitation cases, high-income child support/spousal support, parentage, and domestic violence. Her early experience in personal injury medical and psychological malpractice and business litigation has served her well in being able to understand and negotiate settlements in highly complex marital dissolution cases.

In addition to English, Alexandra speaks Hungarian, conversational French, some Spanish, and conversational Yiddish (in fact, her courtroom use of Yiddishisms is legendary, as she interrupts her own arguments to spell Yiddish words for the court reporter)
