About Me

Alexander has won a wide range of significant cases through mediation, arbitration, and jury trial including claims arising from breach of contract, industrial accidents, medical malpractice, and employment. Alexander has handled appeals before the Seventh Circuit, Illinois Appellate Courts, United States Supreme Court, and represented Amicus Curiae before the Illinois Supreme Court.


 


Alexander grew up in a small town in Southern Wisconsin and went to college in Saint Paul, Minnesota and Washington, D.C. In college he studied Political Science and was a member of Pi Sigma Alpha (national political science honor society). While studying at American University Alexander held his first legal position as an investigator for Mental Health Division of Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia. Shortly thereafter, he graduated from DePaul University College of Law with honors in 2010. While at DePaul he was an Editor and Staff Writer for the DePaul/Commercial Law League of America Business & Commercial Law Journal. Later, he went on to work in the general counsel's office of large pharmaceutical company and most recently at a Chicago litigation boutique firm.


 


In 2013, 2014, 2015 Super Lawyers named Alexander as being one of less than 2.5% of Illinois attorneys under age 40 selected for inclusion in Illinois Super Lawyers® Rising Stars.  To compile its annual list, the research team at Super Lawyers, which is a service of the Thomson Reuters Legal division, undertakes a rigorous multi-phase selection process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, independent evaluation of candidates by the attorney-led research staff and a peer review of candidates by practice area. Super Lawyers magazine names attorneys in each state who received the highest point totals, as chosen by their peers and through the independent research.


 


Alexander was also included in the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Illinois by the National Trial Lawyers for 2013 and 2014. Membership is extended solely to the select few of the most qualified attorneys from each state that demonstrate superior qualifications of leadership, reputation, influence, stature, and public profile.


 


In 2014 Alexander was included in the Top 40 Litigators Under Age 40 by the American Society of Legal Advocates.  The American Society of Legal Advocates’ exclusive membership comprises less than 1.5% of all licensed attorneys nationwide.
