Intellectual property is more than just a legal matter; it has a human side as well. Alexis assisted Berna Huebner, on behalf of her renowned mother and artist Hilda (Hilgos) Gorenstein and the non-profit Hilgos Foundation, in the development of the internationally distributed and widely-acclaimed documentary, "I Remember Better When I Paint." The documentary highlights Mrs. Gorenstein's artistic achievements and the benefits art provides to Alzheimer's patients. Alexis's involvement with the development of the documentary was highlighted during the 2015 Lawyers for the Creative Arts (LCA) annual benefit. She continues to serve other LCA clients.
