About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

Alex is a trial attorney in Levy Konigsberg's New York City office and represents people who have sustained catastrophic injuries. He specializes in representing children that have suffered brain damage as a result of lead poisoning and is part of a team of lawyers appointed as “Lead Counsel” for families poisoned in the Flint Water Crisis. He also represents New Yorkers in claims against the New York City Housing Authority (“NYCHA”) for failing to properly inspect nearly 200,000 public housing apartments for lead-based paint.

Before joining the firm, Alex lived in the City of Philadelphia, where he practiced law for six years. In Philly, Alex was the senior personal injury associate at a prominent plaintiffs’ firm and obtained millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements. He also served as a civil arbitrator and was regularly called upon by the court to help adjudicate cases for other lawyers and their clients.

Alex grew up attending public schools in Pennsylvania before enrolling at the Pennsylvania State University. At Penn State, he graduated from the Schreyer Honors College and earned bachelor degrees in both economics and philosophy. Following his undergraduate studies, Alex attended law school at Temple University in Philadelphia, which is ranked second in the nation in trial advocacy by U.S. News. At Temple, Alex was selected for the Law Review and received the Barrister’s Award for outstanding trial technique.

During law school, Alex worked with the office of the Federal Defender for the Eastern District of PA, as well as the Defender Association of Philadelphia, where he represented accused citizens in Philadelphia’s criminal courts. Alex also worked for and was mentored by the recently-elected District Attorney of Philadelphia, Larry Krasner, while Mr. Krasner was still in private practice, building a reputation as one of the country’s leading civil rights lawyers.

Alex is licensed to practice in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
