Emmanuel Sheppard & Condon (ESC) is pleased to announce the addition of Alexis L. Mays as a director in the construction and commercial litigation practice groups. She will work alongside the firm’s experienced 28 attorneys and more than 50 staff members who proudly serve clients from offices in Pensacola, Pace, South Walton, and Tallahassee.
Licensed in Florida and Alabama, Alexis concentrates in the areas of construction defect litigation and professional liability, assisting general contractors, subcontractors, professional engineers, real estate agents and brokers, appraisers, attorneys, and other individuals against claims brought against them. She also handles premises liability matters, real estate and commercial transactions, and pre-suit negotiations and investigations.
"We are extremely excited to have Alexis join our construction and commercial litigation team," said Wes Reeder, ESC Firm President. "Alexis was often opposite our attorneys in her former job and she proved through her actions to be an extremely competent and ethical attorney. Her experience and skill set, along with the fact that she is licensed in Florida and Alabama, will enhance our ability to provide high quality legal services to our clients in Florida, Alabama, and along the Gulf Coast."
Practicing since 2014, Alexis received her law degree from Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law. While there, she served as an Associate Editor for the Cumberland Law Review and published a case note on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. Alexis is also a member of the inaugural class of the Judge James Edwin Horton Inn of Court for the Cumberland School of Law as well as a former Judge Abraham Caruthers Fellow for the Lawyering and Legal Reasoning program at Cumberland. In addition to her work at the school, Alexis is a former judicial law clerk for the Circuit Court of Baldwin County, Alabama, and a former judicial extern for a Magistrate Judge in the Southern District of Alabama.
In her spare time, Alexis enjoys watching football, reading, and spending time with her family on the beaches and waters of the beautiful Gulf Coast.
