Meet the Murthy Law Firm: Alexia Zehner

The dedicated team of attorneys, paralegals, and support staff at the Murthy Law Firm is integral to our success. Day after day, they help to fulfill the dreams of our clients through their integrity, diligence, and commitment to excellence. To introduce our readers to the dozens of individuals who come together to make our clients and our firm successful, we periodically present one of our exceptional team members. This entry in our continuing “Meet the Murthy Law Firm” series shines the spotlight on paralegal Alexia Zehner, who is celebrating her fifth anniversary at the firm.

Before she was even a teenager, Alexia had moved around the country with her family seven times, and even lived for a short period in Scotland. As the daughter of a Navy submariner, changing locales every few years was par for the course, and she soon came to enjoy the adventure of discovering a new place. Alexia fondly recalls exploring Pearl Harbor, Hawaii; standing in a freak snowstorm in Panama City, Florida; and diving on a submarine in Monterey, California. The family’s next stop was Chesapeake, Virginia, where Alexia attended first grade.

Alexia studied both Spanish and business as an undergraduate at Loyola University in Baltimore. She also studied abroad in Chile, which gave her the opportunity to travel to Argentina, Uruguay, and Peru.

Alexia began working as a paralegal in the H1B department of Murthy Law Firm in 2013, and she knew early on that the job was a great fit with her skill set. “I really like working with people, so I enjoy that aspect of it. I enjoy the writing, and I like that I’m constantly learning, not just about immigration, but about the clients, and their individual situations.” She’s also quick to point out how the collaborative work environment fostered by Sheela Murthy makes working at Murthy Law Firm such a rewarding experience. “All of my coworkers are very supportive: they always help out if anyone needs anything. The whole firm has good vibes, and Sheela and Vasant are amazing people.”
