Alexis Sellars



Associate Attorney

Alexis is a seasoned and highly regarded attorney and litigator, having been ranked sixth out of 84 world-wide Air Force defense counsels. She was previously a professor of Law with the United States Air Force Academy and was named Legal Board Advisor of the Year in 2021. Alexis has brought her poise, effective communication, well-reasoned positions, and trial skills from active duty into civilian practice, now practicing in all areas of family law. Alexis has particular knowledge regarding military divorces and continues to serve as a current reservist, Judge Advocate General (JAG), in the United States Air Force.

Though Alexis is a strong advocate in the courtroom, she is also deeply committed to helping families reach resolution via settlement. Alexis is detail-oriented, but also able to maintain the “big picture,” knowing that the well-being of clients and their children is just as important as a legal outcome. Alexis works to ensure her clients understand the legal process and engage in a cost-benefit analysis of the various options so they are empowered to make decisions that best fit the unique needs of their family.

It is Alexis’s goal that clients feel heard, understood, and have their cases resolved with dignity. Alexis employs creative solutions to meet client needs in a timely manner to limit the strain inherently caused by domestic relations matters.

Alexis graduated from Tulane Law School and is licensed in both Wisconsin and Colorado. 

In her free time, Alexis enjoys traveling and experiencing new cities and cultures, hiking, skiing, and spending time with her family and friends.
