Krieg DeVault LLP associate
College internships with the Center for American Progress and the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation sparked Alexandria Foster’s interest in the legal profession. Those experiences, the political science, philosophy and sociology courses she took, plus a desire to be civically engaged led her to law school. While attending law school, she spent two summers with Krieg DeVault LLP as a summer associate, developing a strong interest in health care law. In 2018, she joined its Health Care Practice Group as an associate and now advises clients on a variety of legal matters related to regulatory compliance, professional licensing defense, corporate governance, federal and state privacy laws, and business transactions. She also serves on the firm’s diversity, equity and inclusion committee and helps to recruit law students to the firm.
Proud moment in your career? Advising the firm’s health care clients through various challenges caused by COVID-19. “Through such a dark time in the country and throughout the world, I was grateful to play a small part in helping providers care for their patients, while also guiding them through new laws that have impacted the delivery, accessibility and transparency of health care services.”
What have you learned about yourself since joining the workforce? I’ve developed a greater appreciation for the responsibility that comes with being an attorney. “We are often called upon during difficult situations, and clients look to us for help in their personal and professional lives.”
Where do you see yourself in 10 years? “I hope to continue to be a trusted legal adviser to health care clients, while also serving as a mentor to younger attorneys.”
