About our guest:

Alexis Austin is the CEO and Managing Partner of Right Law Group, a Colorado Springs criminal defense law firm she founded in June of 2018.

Before founding Right Law Group, Ms. Austin was a Deputy District Attorney in Pueblo and Colorado Springs. She left the D.A.’s office to become a partner in a well-respected criminal defense firm in Colorado Springs. During her time there, she learned what it takes to run a successful law practice. Armed with that knowledge and a desire to start a firm wired for the 21st century, she set out on her own and founded the Right Law Group. Right Law Group has since become one of the top criminal defense firms in Colorado Springs by specializing in enhancing the client’s experience through leveraging technology.

Ms. Austin has a passion for helping people get back on the right path and work towards bettering their lives. She also believes that clients should be treated as more than case files. They should be able to build a strong relationship and trust with their law firm as they go through the most difficult times in their lives. Ms. Austin has made that philosophy the cornerstone of Right Law Group. Based on her background in cognitive psychology and domestic violence research, Ms. Austin particularly enjoys working with people who are charged with domestic violence charges or who suffer from PTSD. Her knowledgeable and compassionate approach to helping clients see the light at the end of the tunnel is one of the things people love best about working with her.

Not only is Ms. Austin passionate about zealously representing her clients, she is also a dedicated businesswoman. Her leadership and vision have led the Right Law Group to consecutive years of increased growth and success, including during the Covid-19 pandemic. Since June of 2018, she has grown the business from a single employee (herself) to four full-time attorneys, and a staff of ten. She has also mentored local entrepreneurial attorneys who have used Ms. Austin’s example and advice to open and grow their own legal enterprises.

Alexis Austin’s expertise goes beyond her role as a lawyer; she’s also the founder of 360 Strategic Success, a consulting business focused on coaching and advising criminal defense law firm owners to effectively build and manage their practices. With personalized coaching and strategic guidance, Alexis empowers fellow attorneys worldwide to achieve their business objectives while maintaining the highest standards of legal representation for their clients.
