In addition to providing advice and counsel to older clients, people who are disabled and their family members, she has represented both individual and institutional fiduciaries. 

After receiving a Bachelor of Arts in theater from Saint Louis University in 1986, Ms. Alsop pursued her legal education at Valparaiso University Law School. After being awarded her Juris Doctor in 1989, she joined the Office of the Missouri Attorney General, where she handled both civil and criminal cases during two different tenures there.

She has received a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo.

Ms. Alsop is admitted to practice before all Missouri and Illinois state courts as well as before the Supreme Court of the United States. The former chair of both the Elder Law Committee of The Missouri Bar and the Advocacy/Litigation Section of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys Inc., she is an active participant in several other organizations. Her memberships include the Academy of Special Needs Planners and the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys. She served as the President of the American Parkinson's Disease Association--St. Louis Chapter and has served on the boards of the Downs Syndrome Association and Aging Ahead (the Meals on Wheels Organization).

She taught the Elder Law class at St. Louis University with another respected colleague, and Ms. Alsop is often asked to present on the complicated issues of Elder Law and Special Needs Planning to both professionals and community groups. Her clients and other professionals consistently recommend her because of her commitment to communicate with clients in a way that educates them on the legal issues in a simplified and understandable way, and how the law dovetails into their unique situation so that the client is empowered and capable to make the best decisions for themselves and their family. 

Ms. Alsop calendar sometimes fills up and clients have to wait for weeks or even months to see her.  However, there is a reason for the wait. Her reputation in the community among professionals, financial advisors and especially former clients is that Ms. Alsop focuses the attention on her clients, explains complicated matters in a simplified and understandable way and offers sound guidance and peace of mind to those who are lucky enough to call her their attorney.
