Former Federal Prosecutor Georgia Alexakis Joins RSHC

Riley Safer Holmes & Cancila LLP (RSHC) welcomes new partner Georgia Alexakis to our Government Enforcement, Investigations & White Collar Criminal Defense and Appellate advocacy practices. 

Alexakis joins the firm following nearly nine years with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Illinois, where she most recently served as Deputy Chief of Appeals in its Criminal Division. 

Recognized nationally by the Department of Justice for her outstanding performance as an appellate advocate, Alexakis also developed extensive experience as a trial lawyer, securing convictions against public officials, lobbyists, and a police officer who, as a jury found, used excessive force in firing his weapon and striking two Chicago teenagers. Beyond this, she was tapped to develop and implement responses to several congressional subpoenas seeking sensitive information from the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Her work culminated in witness testimony from the Department of Justice before the House Judiciary and Oversight and Reform Committees.
