Associate Alexis Handrich has joined the Executive Committee of the Workers’ Compensation Section of the Philadelphia Bar Association as 2018 Co-Chair. She has been an active leader in the organization for nine years.
Alexis’ first role with the Philadelphia Bar Association was crafting updates that impacted workers’ compensation law as Legislative Liaison to the Executive Committee. She joined the Diversity and Inclusion Committee and helped launch an initiative aimed at Philadelphia students interested in the legal profession. Through the program, eight middle- and high school-aged students have received scholarships and performed clerkships for prominent judges over the past two years.
Alexis also served on the Arts in the Court Committee, and helped commission a local artist to complete eight large paintings depicting various icons of Philadelphia industry and commerce. The works illustrate the importance of labor in Philadelphia’s history, and can be seen hanging at the Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation Office of Adjudication.
“I am honored to have been involved with the Workers’ Compensation Section of the Philadelphia Bar Association in many capacities over the years. I am excited to join my fellow Co-Chairs in leading the organization,” Alexis said of her new role. “Together, we will make a difference for injured workers and for our members in their daily practices.”
