Alexis B. Mattingly


Alexis focuses primarily on the defense of complex litigation, transportation law, mass and toxic torts, product liability, premises liability, and insurance law. She has experience defending retailers, railway companies, trucking companies, chemical companies, insurance companies, hospitality and manufacturing companies. Alexis believes to truly defend a case she has to know what makes each client’s business run. Every bit of discovery is targeted to an end goal – to put her client in the best position possible for a positive outcome.

She represents employers against harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination and “deliberate intent” claims, and she has defended multiple companies against premises liability claims. In addition, she defends manufacturers against product liability claims, including claims relating to alleged defective equipment and claims relating to alleged chemical exposure. She has also represented railway companies in a variety of contexts, including, but not limited to, claims for personal and repetitive injuries, claims for sexual harassment and retaliation, and property related claims. Finally, she defends insurance companies in coverage related disputes.
