Alexis is the former owner and solo practitioner of Swope Law in Hellam, PA, which was formed after the retirement of her Father and Partner, the late Donald B. Swope, Esquire. As his practice focused largely on Adoptions (including the first same-sex adoption in Pennsylvania), Alexis continued on the same path, having completed dozens of adoptions throughout York, Lancaster, Lebanon, Adams, and Cumberland Counties. These have included both at-birth private placement adoptions and adult adoptions. She has handled Involuntary Termination of Parental Rights appeals in both the Superior and Supreme Courts of Pennsylvania, most recently having argued before the PA Supreme Court in March of 2023.

In addition to Adoption, Attorney Swope practices in the areas of Family Law, Name Changes, Estate Planning, and Estate Administration. Within those areas, a large amount of her practice involves litigating Custody, Paternity, Divorce, and Support matters. 

A vocal advocate of social rights and liberties, Alexis provides fee-free name changes for transgender individuals, including gender marker changes. Attorney Swope is also court-appointed in both York and Lancaster Counties to represent minors in Judicial Bypass proceedings.
