Alexa Cussick

Associate Attorney

Alexa graduated with honors from Illinois Wesleyan in 2013 with a double major of Business and International Studies, with a concentration in Diplomatic Studies. Alexa then went to The John Marshall Law School, where she was involved in the Immigration Clinic and International Human Rights Clinic. Alexa’s favorite moment in law school was when she was a Research Assistant for two Human Rights professors; she was given the opportunity to help write a draft Convention for the Rights of Older Persons and attended a working session at the United Nations in New York. While attending classes and being a Research Assistant, Alexa also worked as a Legal Assistant at the Law Office of Scott D. DeSalvo. She learned about personal injury cases and the importance of client communication.

After law school, Alexa continued to work at the Law Office of Scott D. DeSalvo, and eventually ended up at Anderson Law Offices, where she primarily focused on Estate Planning and Estate Administration. Alexa enjoyed working on guardianship cases and being a Guardian Ad Litem, because she loves working with children and protecting those who cannot advocate for themselves.

When Alexa is not working, she enjoys being an advisor for her church’s youth group. Alexa also has a strong passion for traveling, cooking, baking, and exploring new restaurants. Alexa loves spending time with her amazing family, friends and her adorable Soft Coated Wheaton Terrier.
