I am an avid golfer and basketball player.  I enjoy coaching and mentoring kids and helping people in general.  Star Wars, super-hero shows, and post-apocalyptic shows and movies are my thing (Walking Dead!)

Practicing law is a great honor.

Very Confident and Kind
Mr. Alexander gave me the confidence I needed to go to trial and win! He always stayed in communication with me and never left me wondering what was happening. He was also very aggressive in the court room and I felt very secure with him. Thank you Salih Alexander!!

Aggressive Representation
Out of the courtroom, Mr. Alexander went above and beyond from the moment that I retained him to represent my son. Mr. Alexander went as far as showing up to the detention center to explain every single detail of what was happening which I appreciated so much. Mr. Alexander treated my son, and my family, with great comlpassion and is was clearly my sons well beingamd safety. In the courtroom: Mr. Alexander fiercely advocated for my son during very hearing and got unbelievable results at every stage of the game. I highly reccomend Mr. Alexander.
