Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Kerry James Sullivan

    I endorse this lawyer. Alex is a driven and fiercely smart lawyer whose focus is on getting results for his clients. He is a master of creative solutions for his clients' needs, often through sophisticated co-counsel and fee approaches that many lawyers don't use. I've known Alex for many years and have watched him go from being a big-firm lawyer to launching and growing his own practice. He's a go-to when I need to refer a matter.
