ALICJA M. SROKA is a founding partner of Alicja M. Sroka & Associates, which was founded in May 2013 and has seen phenomenal growth due to her expertise with a broad array of legal issues. Alicja’s areas of practice include those related to the real estate transactions, bankruptcy filings, and contested litigation.
Alicja received an undergraduate degree from DePaul University in Accounting and Finance. While an undergraduate, Alicja remained on the Dean’s List each quarter, despite working full time as a Senior Loan Processor for a mortgage company and maintaining a full class schedule. Alicja’s position as a loan processor exposed her to the intricacies of the mortgage lending industry: as she reviewed loan applications, assisted with closings, and analyzed collateralized loans and mortgages.
Alicja continued working full time while at John Marshall Law School, where she was regularly placed on the Dean’s list and obtained CALI awards for Bankruptcy and Real Estate Law. Alicja was a member of The John Marshall Law Review, American Bar Association, Student Bar Association, Evening Student Liaison, Polish American Law Student Association and Phi Alpha Delta.
During her studies at John Marshall, Alicja began work at Cutler & Associates, Ltd., where she became an active member of the firm’s bankruptcy department. After graduation Alicja was tasked with preparing Chapter 7, and 13 filings and other bankruptcy matters, real estate closings, and family law cases. Alicja additionally participated in the firm’s litigation department.
Since founding her own practice, Alicja has taken great pride in being able to help people from all walks of life to achieve the best legal conclusions possible. Nothing motivates her more than being able to make a beneficial difference in someone else’s life, and she is thrilled that she is able to work every day for the greater good.
