Alexandria Gwyn Foster

Home $ About $ Gwyn, Alexandria

Alexandria genuinely cares about her clients and has a passion for helping people, especially children. During her time at Loyola University College of Law, she focused her coursework on family law and criminal matters. Alexandria was the philanthropy chair of her service fraternity, Phi Alpha Delta, and won several service awards and national recognition for the chapter as a result of her dedication to local charities. During this time, she was selected for the Gillis Long Student Pro Bono Program and interned for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA). While at CASA, Alexandria helped the New Orleans chapter build a database to compare and track all children who have been in the foster care system for the last 20 years.

Alexandria honed her courtroom skills as a student practitioner in the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office. Alexandria’s time spent with CASA and the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s Office inspired her to become a family law attorney. Upon moving to Texas, Alexandria joined a family law firm where she assisted with hearings, trials and mediations in Brazos, Brazoria, Grimes, Washington and Franklin Counties.

Alexandria prides herself on providing representation that is both professional and compassionate. She strives to handle matters amicably for her clients but, if necessary, is also ready to vigorously defend their interests in court. Alexandria understands that a family law dispute is often the most painful experience her clients will ever go through in their lives, and she approaches each case with compassion and concern.

Away from the office, Alexandria enjoys cooking, reading, spending time with her dog, Louie, and supporting our Houston Astros. She also gives her time volunteering for legal lines.
