Helpful and honest
I have not had the pleasure of working with Alex, but I called him to ask about a medical issue for a friend of my family. He was more than happy to speak with me about the case and what other cases involved. He explains things in a way that is easy to understand, and I would feel very confident recommending him to friends and family.

I highly recommend Alex!
Alex handled my complex personal situation (not to mention my case) with a lot of finesse. Since my case involved more than myself and the defendant, he also ensured that a third party’s personal scenario (intertwined with that of my lawsuit) was taken into careful and astute consideration so that both myself and the third party could come to a successful resolution. All in all, the case was resolved greatly in my favor and much faster than I expected. Alex is clearly a great negotiator and knows what he's doing. That, and, all without the need for trial or other annoying procedures. Alex was also kind and considerate in navigating my personal needs, feelings, and situation while trying to simultaneously resolve the case (even if my needs didn’t always jive with what the case actually needed). He was prompt and attentive in all communications with me. All in all a great attorney and an even better person. I highly recommend him!

Excellent personal injury attorney
Alex is experienced, knowledgeable, and a very personable attorney. He assisted me with an auto accident case. He immediately returned my calls, and explained in plain english what options were available. He fights hard for his clients and is highly recommended.

Lucky we found him!
Alex has been helping us with a lawsuit that has been dragging on for years. All things considered, it's a relatively minor case, but he's always on top of things when they come up and he keeps us informed in an honest, no-nonsense way. It's comforting to have an attorney you trust to navigate you through the complexities of the legal system.

Concise and Comforting
Alexander was precise in his response and to the point which I so appreciated. He ended with a short comforting sentence that was great as besides needing the legal advise, most clients are nervous when there is a legal problem.

Clear, trustworthy and honest personal injury attorney.
Alex Memmen is an extremely helpful, responsive, and thoughtful attorney. He's an excellent communicator, able to interpret situations clearly and plainly and as a result is great at dealing with clients. Highly recommended for any personal injury case.

Highly Recommended!!
I appreciated Alex's forthrightness and clear and concise manner in discussing the issues of our group's liability case. He has also promptly followed up with me to address any and all concerns I have had. I am very confident that he will get a favorable outcome for us and I highly recommend his services.

A great, trustworthy attorney.
Mr. Memmen was thorough, thoughtful, and persistent throughout my entire experience with him. He succeeded in helping me getting an insurance company to cover medical bills paid after I sustained an injury as a freelancer.

Mr. Alexander Memmen Review
Mr. Memmen was on top of my case since day one, He kept me well informed of what was going on. Gave me honest answers on which direction the case should be going. Mr. Memmen was available to me 24-7. If I couldnt find him in the office, I would always find him on his cell phone,

Energetic and competent
Mr. Memmen is extremely intelligent, conscientous, ethical and experienced. He was very realistic and his advice was very valuable. He is very responsive and helped me through a challenging interaction with a much larger entity. Highly recommend!

if you want someon to help you lose your case Memmen can do it
If you avoid Alexander Memmen will save you time and money . My case was very simple and haring attorney was option .Because of my accent I decided to be on the save side . In his office he promise to work hard and even told my that I'm having big chances . Later I found out that he was giving me wrong information about the options I have . In the court day he was not prepared at all and from very beginning he started to lead to negotiation even I clearly asked not to from very beginning . Not only this he wanted to negotiate without me and when I disagree and wanted to be there he literally threw my folder , show a temper and disappear from the court house . I'm very disappointed by how unprofessional Alexander Mchenry Memmen is . Not recommended at all .
