Alexandra L. Kovalchick is an associate attorney with Gentile, Horoho & Avalli, P.C.   Alex joined the firm in 2018.  Prior to that, Alex practiced for over 10 years almost exclusively in Family Law at other Pittsburgh area firms.

Alex specializes in Family Law matters, including divorce, support, custody, and protection from abuse.  Alex has also expanded her practice to include estate planning, estate litigation as well as various Orphans’ Court litigation matters, such as trustee removal actions and will contests.  Her experience in Family Law assisting clients through difficult emotions and complex financial matters has made estate planning and litigation a natural next step in her legal career.

Alex takes an aggressive yet practical and creative approach to the practice of law.  Alex is straight forward with her clients, empowering them with the information necessary to make informed decisions regarding their case, whether through litigation or settlement.  Alex aims to determine the client’s ultimate goals early on in their case in order that she can plan her strategies for the case with that in mind.  Alex understands that in matters that affect a client’s family and finances, it is vitally important that the client understands the process, the consequences, and the benefits of each decision made.

She is a 2005 graduate of the University of Maryland, College Park and a 2008 graduate of the Southern Illinois University School of Law, in Carbondale, Illinois.

More About Alex

I am a native of Butler and while I am a proud hometown girl, I have been living in the city of Pittsburgh for many years and just purchased my first home in Brighton Heights.  I am an avid yogi, attempt to still play volleyball at a competitive level without getting hurt, and from time to time, I can run a few decent miles.  My greatest joy is being an auntie to my beautiful niece, Dilek, and my neph-pups, Tucker and Bear.
