Personalized Legal Support for Your Unique Journey

At Alexis Allen Law, we specialize in providing compassionate, personalized legal services in the areas of divorce and family law. Our practice is built on the foundation of empathy, integrity, and a deep commitment to our clients' well-being.

Your Peace of Mind Matters in Divorce

Alexis Allen is known for her honest and efficient approach to handling divorce and custody cases. One thing that sets Alexis apart is that she does not take a one-size-fits-all approach to her practice. She strives to guide her clients through this emotional time with compassion for the client’s needs and desires. At the same time, she works with her clients to develop a strategy that will be best for them, given the facts and law applicable to their specific case.

Throughout her practice, Alexis is cognizant of how expensive and painful this process can be. Where appropriate given the circumstances of the case, Alexis will work with opposing counsel or the opposing party to craft agreements that will ensure a resolution that is in her client’s best interest, while avoiding the hassle and cost of having to go to court. When that doesn’t work out, Alexis is happy to put her years of experience in the courtroom to work, zealously advocating for her clients. 

Alexis is not a native Texan, but came here as soon as she could and is proud to call north Texas home.  

Alexis completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at Arlington, majoring in History with a Pre-Law emphasis.  She then attended Texas Wesleyan University School of Law, now known as the Texas A&M School of Law, where she graduated in 2008.  While in law school, Alexis devoted hundreds of hours to the Innocence Project, working to free an innocent man, and she was honored to be the only recipient of the Equal Justice Award out of her graduating class.

Alexis Allen

Founding Attorney

Alexis has been practicing law in north Texas since 2008. While honing her legal skills in the practice of municipal law, Alexis spent many hours volunteering with Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program, working primarily on family law cases. Through this experience, she discovered a passion for her family law clients. After spending almost a decade litigating in municipal law, Alexis decided to pursue this passion and transition her practice into family law.

Alexis has worked on cases ranging from simple divorces with no children and minimal financial issues, to complex cases including closely-held business interests, and issues regarding protection of children in at-risk situations, including parents with drug and alcohol issues. Alexis has also handled several custody cases involving children being raised by their grandparents.

Alexis is a current member of the Tarrant County Bar Association, the Arlington Bar Association, and the Tarrant County Family Law Bar. She makes it a priority to regularly volunteer in her community, usually at her church’s food bank, working with Mission Arlington, or coaching a little league team. Alexis enjoys spending her free time with her family and can often be found outdoors, fishing, swimming, or training for her next half-marathon.
