Alexa is a Brevard County native born to Dr. Frank and Christine Filiberto.
Alexa attended Bayside High School, where she spent all four years as
a varsity student-athlete. While at Bayside, Alexa was awarded the Wendy’s
High School Heisman award and graduated with honors in 2008. After high
school, Alexa received an academic scholarship to attend the University
of Tampa and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sports Management in 2012.
Alexa’s competitive nature and desire to help people led her to pursue
a law degree. During her time in law school, Alexa interned with The Honorable
David E. Silverman in Brevard County, and also participated in the prosecution
clinic for Alachua County. Alexa graduated
cum laude from the University of Florida Levin College of Law in 2015 and has been
advocating for people in the State of Florida ever since.
In 2015, Alexa was admitted to the Florida Bar and was appointed Assistant
State Attorney by Bernie McCabe, State Attorney for the Sixth Judicial
Circuit in Pinellas County. Because of her strong work ethic, confidence
and success in the courtroom, Alexa was quickly promoted from the misdemeanor
division to the felony division at one of the busiest state attorney’s
offices in the State of Florida. She spent three years advocating for
victims of crimes and has handled thousands of cases, ranging from DUIs
to attempted first-degree murder. In addition, Alexa has tried over 35
jury trials to verdict and has completed numerous motions and appeals.
During her tenure at the state attorney’s office, Alexa developed
her passion as a trial attorney and found an even deeper passion for helping
those who have been wronged.
Alexa’s experiences both inside and outside the courtroom have molded
her into the confident attorney she is today. Growing up, Alexa spent
her summers working in her father’s medical office, where she witnessed
firsthand those who were struggling with medical issues and injuries.
This experience, coupled with her extensive trial success, has allowed
Alexa to appreciate the need for helping accident victims who have been
wronged, through no fault of their own, obtain justice.
