Alex Roberts, JD

Alex has always centered the human side of things in her work. She graduated with honors from the University of Evansville with a B.A. in archaeology and classical studies, where she spent her undergraduate years studying ancient people and their behaviors. Learning Latin, ancient Greek, and biblical Hebrew, and even participating in a real archaeological excavation, Alex stoked her passion for understanding how individuals and families from long ago lived and communicated.

As she approached college graduation, however, Alex felt like something was missing. While her appreciation for history remained steadfast, she wanted to invest herself in work that would have a lasting impact on modern day individuals, families, and culture. She determined that the best way to accomplish this was to take all of the knowledge she had gained about people from the past and apply that knowledge toward serving people of the present. This shift in focus led her directly to law school.

Alex graduated from Indiana University Maurer School of Law and was admitted to the Indiana State Bar in 2017. She was immediately drawn toward family law, a practice area she felt contained shades of the same human, personal, and cultural elements that she loved about archaeology.

During law school, Alex volunteered as a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for Children in Need of Services, where she underwent intensive training in order to work with child welfare professionals, educators, and service providers to ensure that judges had the information they needed to make the most well-informed decisions for children experiencing abuse and neglect. Not content to stop there, Alex completed additional training to become a domestic relations mediator and poured herself into the Viola J. Taliaferro Family and Children Mediation Clinic, where she served as a pro bono mediator for scores of divorce and separation cases for low income Hoosiers and ultimately earned an award for clinical excellence in her field.

After graduating law school, Alex was invited back to the mediation clinic to assist professors in training, mentoring, and teaching new students. She also began a career as a child support prosecutor, where, over the course of five years, she witnessed firsthand how destructive the adversarial system can be for families and cultivated a strong belief that people – not judges – should be in charge of their own lives.

Because of her belief in autonomy and self-determination – and her belief in the power of mediation to foster those values – Alex came to The Resolution Center. Since joining the TRC team, she has enjoyed returning to her roots as a domestic relations mediator and has taken radical steps toward expanding her skillset and education. In 2023, she completed a summer program to become a CDC Certified Divorce Coach, where she underwent intensive training in conflict resolution strategies, emotional support frameworks, and communication techniques in order to better serve clients stepping out into the black hole of divorce and separation.

Alex is an experienced attorney with a heart for service and a demonstrated history of professional excellence. She delivers this excellence to The Resolution Center as a mediator and as a certified divorce coach. As a mediator, Alex is passionate about empowering families to redefine their own futures; and as a certified divorce coach, she is equipped with the tools and the knowledge to help individuals achieve their post-divorce goals.
