Alex originally hails from the United States but moved to Australia in 2012 to be closer to family. He holds an undergraduate degree in International Relations from Macquarie University and a Juris Doctor from the University of Canberra. Alex joined us in 2023 after working as a solicitor at the ACT Government Solicitor. He has worked across litigation since commencing his Juris Doctor in 2018 and worked as an associate at both the ACT Supreme Court and Magistrates Court. He credits this experience for developing his passion for advocacy.
Alex has a pragmatic, results-oriented style and prides himself on his ability to quickly grasp complex issues to develop a strategy, while remaining sensitive to client circumstances and concerns. He takes a collaborative approach with clients to achieve desired outcomes and has a particular interest in the role mediation can play when resolving disputes as well as family law involving international clients.
Alex enjoys spending time with his family, which includes his dog Ranger, an energetic Golden Retriever-Border Collie cross (he is smaller than you think!). He enjoys reading and playing a variety of sports including soccer, flag gridiron and Brazilian jiujitsu. Alex is an avid proponent of Pilates and thinks you should give it a try, too.
