Current: High powered attorney
Past: District Attorney

Alexis came to Port Charles to defend one character against stalking charges levied by another. The cheating and scheming that takes place among those linked to General Hospital has kept her quite busy throughout the years.
She's had romantic liaisons with Ned Ashton and Jasper Jacks, and her stormy marriage with Ric Lansing is all but done. She probably found her most romantic moment with steamy, Sonny Corinthos, and when she finally relented to having sex with him, it resulted in the birth of daughter, Kristina. With her child's welfare in mind, Alexis halted any contact with him and the mob connections that have already cost the lives of so many but eventually softened and let him have visitation with his daughter.
As part of the Cassidine clan, Alexis is plagued by her hatred for Helena for killing her mother right in front of her. Even after joining up with Luke Spencer to rid the world of the evil woman, Helena still turns up periodically to remind us that she is invincible.
It seems that every act that involves Alexis has a consequence. If she wins a case, she loses a lover. She can't find peace no matter how hard she tries. She recently learned that Sam McCall is the daughter she gave up years ago, and then discovered her in a compromising position with husband, Ric. Alexis had the fight of her life when she faced cancer, but came out on top. She continues to fight the bad guys of Port Charles by day, but ends up befriending them in her off hours.
When Sonny's son Michael was shot (and put in a coma) in 2008, she fought to keep Kristina, her daughter with Sonny, away from him. She and her BFF, fellow attorney Diane Miller, are often each other's sounding board and drinking partner.
Against her better judgment, she gave in to a love affair with Jerry Jacks. As District Attorney, she knew better than to align herself with a known criminal, but as a woman she was lonely.
Alexis was exposed as having an affair with the married Mayor Floyd. His wife Andrea tried to set Alexis up for killing his mistress and stalking the mayor. During this time Alexis also confessed to running Claudia off the road, which caused the death of her baby. Alexis was actually covering for her daughter Kristina and was cleared of all crimes.
Molly and Kristina became focused on setting their mother up with Mac and they went on a few friendly dates. Alexis also started working in the private sector, teaming up with Diane Miller at her firm.
Things turned serious again after Alexis found a beaten Kristina in their home. She rushed her daughter to the hospital and unknowingly hit Kristina's abuser, Kiefer Bauer, with her car and killed him. She got off with community service.
The ensuing months were spent trying to keep Kristina on track for high school graduation and away from older man Ethan Lovett. She was also a sounding board for Sam, who wanted to have a baby. When Kristina didn't get into Yale, Alexis went to Sonny to pull some strings in order to keep their daughter away from Ethan. It worked, but in order to keep their alliance quiet, Sonny forced her to represent him again.

At the court house, everyone speculates why the judge called them back so soon. Ellie rushes in and sits behind Spinelli. Lulu pulls her hand away when Dante tries to hold it. Maxie worries when the judge recognizes that the Falconeri's have been raising the child as their own but soon Lulu is crushed. The baby is not Lulu's child and perjury is a serious offense. Lulu screams, she's sorry she lied and begs him not to take her child away. The judge's decision has been made and he throws down the gavel as Lulu runs out of the court room alone. Dante thanks Alexis, and then runs out before the judge continues. Maxie asks when she will get Connie but the judge isn't awarding her custody either. While Diane calms Maxie, the judge awards Connie to Spinelli. Maxie asks Spinelli to do something. He stands up and admits the judge's ruling is unfair and asks if Maxie can see the baby. The judge won't allow visitation for six months and requests Maxie to think about the damage she has done. Maxie's stunned.
In the court room, Diane asks Dante if Lulu's lying. He pretends the question is unclear. Diane reminds him he's an officer of the law and the judge asks him to respond truthfully. Dante responds, "Yes, she lied." He elaborates that Lulu didn't mean it. There was no plan. Diane gets Dante to admit he talked her out of running with Connie. Dante returns to Lulu's side and apologizes for not having a choice. Lulu claims he did, he just didn't choose them. Nearby, Spinelli worries about Lulu. Maxie and Diane don't care; it's a gift that Lulu lied. Diane's ready to close but Spinelli wants to take the stand. He addresses Dante and Lulu. Spinelli can't believe it has come to this. They are friends...family…all hurting each other. He affirms to Diane he does want to raise his child. After, Diane and Alexis give their closing statements. The judge breaks. Lulu pulls away from Dante to rush out of the court room while Diane invites Alexis for a drink. She's not interested. Maxie's family believes things will work in Maxie's favor. Later, court reconvenes and they wait for the judge.
