Biography

Alexandra B. Crittenden was born in Gainesville, Florida and raised in Kissimmee, Florida. She returned to Gainesville when she attended the University of Florida, majoring in Journalism with a concentration in Editing and Criminology. After graduating cum laude in May 2009, she moved to beautiful St. Petersburg, Florida to attend law school at Stetson University College of Law as a full-merit scholar. She booked her trial advocacy class, earning the Victor O. Wehle Trial Advocacy Award. She worked on campus for the Dean of Student Life, and served as an Ambassador, mentoring first-year law students. With aspirations of becoming a skilled trial attorney, she took advantage of the Certified Legal Internship Programs, which allowed her to fully litigate and try cases before Judges and juries as she was still a student in law school. As she graduated from law school in 2012, she had already tried three cases in front of juries, and argued numerous motions.

After graduating law school, Alexandra started her career at the State Attorney’s Office in the 12th Judicial Circuit, proudly serving the citizens of Manatee County for 4 years. As a prosecutor, Alexandra spent most of her days in the courtroom, arguing complex motions and trying up to 10 trials per year. She found her position at the State Attorney’s Office to be fulfilling, as she zealously represented victims in difficult and sometimes vulnerable times, and as she worked closely with some of the finest Law Enforcement Officers in the country.

Alexandra transitioned into civil practice in 2016 when she began working for Banker Lopez Gassler, practicing insurance defense with a focus on automobile negligence and premises liability. Now a member of Shelton | McKean, Alexandra continues her trial practice in both state and federal court, zealously representing her clients consisting of insurance companies and the citizens who are their insureds.
