DEBBIE new

Deborah C. Weaver 

Owner and Chief Executive Officer

After beginning her career as a court reporter with a degree from Brown’s Business College, Debbie purchased the firm she worked for in 1985. Since then, that firm has grown and evolved into Alaris, providing litigation, trial and mediation services.  Described as both driven and passionate about her work, Debbie works continuously to make sure her clients’ and employees’ needs are met. Through Debbie’s leadership, the Alaris team participates in several charity and service projects including Motion for Kids, Let’s Start, Read Across America and Dollars for Depositions.

 

In her spare time, she loves sailing, exercising, reading and relaxing by the pool with her husband, kids, and two Labradors. Debbie’s most treasured belonging is her mother’s original hat and wings from her days as a stewardess with Delta. “Her career was a big part of her life when women didn’t really have careers, and she truly enjoyed her job. It is a reminder to me of her support of my career as I was finding my way.”

 

"Growth and innovation are only possible with a team. It is my goal and the goal of my management team to create the best culture and team of people possible, allowing them to achieve their goals and grow as individuals both professionally and personally. We presently have 12 regional offices and 63 employees. It would be impossible for me to motivate and manage all of them. I trust and respect my management team to keep the culture and the vision that we have created and continue to engage all our employees to the highest level we can."
