About me

Alex Wathen comes from a family of Catholic Kentucky bourbon makers.
Some of his relatives still make Wathen's Kentucky Bourbon. Alex has
taken on a much more global perspective and likes to learn and
experience new cultures and people in different parts of the world. He
also speaks French, Spanish, and Swedish. Although having received some
education in Europe, Alex is a great believer in our educational system
in the United States. He received his B.A. degree from the University
of Southern California, his M.L.S. degree from the University of North
Texas, and his J.D. degree from the University of Minnesota. He has
also taken classes at various other colleges and universities to enrich
himself. Alex has continued his commitment to education as a lawyer. He
speaks at several continuing legal education conferences each year
throughout Texas and in Mexico. Alex believes that good colleges are
not the ones who educate you, but teach you how to educate yourself.


Languages spoken: French, Spanish, Swedish
