Biography

A native Charlottean, Alexia Martin passionately serves the community she calls home.

Intending to become a psychologist, Alexia’s career path shifted while completing her undergraduate honors thesis on the impact of expert testimony in a mild traumatic brain injury trial. “While working with my mentor, who specialized in juror bias, I decided I wanted to use the skills I was developing learning psychology to serve the community as an attorney.”

Alexia worked on the editorial staff of the Journal of Law and Policy at the Wake Forest University School of Law and was a member of the Moot Court Board and Teen Court. She was also the recipient of the 2019 North Carolina Advocates for Justice Most Outstanding Advocate Award. Her internships included service to the Forsyth County District Attorney’s Office and multiple area law firms. Prior to joining Hedrick Gardner, she practiced at a Cary, NC firm.

When not practicing law, Alexia can be found taking walks on the greenway and participating in local running races. She also enjoys cheering for the Carolina Panthers and sampling Charlotte’s many great restaurants and breweries.
