A sudden severe injury, just because the other driver wasn’t paying attention, can turn someone’s world upside down. Getting out of bed, showering, and dressing become torture. Medical bills and inability to work push finances to the brink. Family relationships become strained. Insurance companies call honest people liars and pursue a policy of delay and deny to avoid fairly paying claims.
Alex has worked a lifetime to get justice for people hurt in car other types of accidents, caused by someone else doing something stupid. The court calls it negligence. He successfully takes on multibillion dollar insurance companies every day.
Alex has served on the board of directors of the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego and won their highly coveted “Outstanding Advocate Award,” for his work in Renko vs State Farm. He has been recognized multiple times by the Consumer Attorneys for his dedication to his clients’ rights and demonstration of standards of excellence. Alex has also served as a judge pro tem for the San Diego County Superior Court, an arbitrator for uninsured motorist cases, been a lecturer for the Consumer Attorneys of San Diego, leads Inns of Court workshops on evidence and trial skills, and has been privileged to have received hundreds of hours of special training in trial practice through Gerry Spence’s “Trial Lawyers College.”
Alex graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Pittsburgh and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. He then attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. He has maintained offices in San Diego County, CA, since his admission to the bar in 1977.
madladluc - Wonderful! I called to make an appointment and he answered my basic questions right over the phone. I will be using his services in the future and have already referred my mother. He was very knowledgeable, and made his answers to the point and easy to understand.

tildas - Expert Legal Advice. In January of 2004 my car was rear-ended by a utility truck. My car was totaled and I was air-lifted by helicopter to a trauma unit. I was there for 10 days and then went to a rehab center for 2 months. I had multiple injuries and it was evident that I needed legal advice. The only lawyer I wanted to represent me was Alex Scheingross. He had prepared my living trust several years before this happened and I was impressed by how thorough he had handled my wishes. Alex came to the hospital and rehab center and together we worked on my case. He was a tough negotiator and I was truly impressed with how he handled questions from the "other side". I was very pleased at the settlement and would recommend Alex for any type of legal services.
thealtima - Alex Stands Up To The Car Insurance Companies. My wife had 2 surgeries on her neck and 1 on her arm after she was badly hurt in a traffic accident when a driver drove into the rear of her SUV while she was stopped at a stop light. The other driver's insurance company said my wife could not have been hurt in the accident because there was very little damage to the SUV because the trailer hitch on her SUV took the brunt of the impact. Alex wouldn't let up. He kept up the pressure on the insurance company while preparing us for trial. Just a week before the trial was to start Alex was able to get the insurance company to stop playing chicken with us and settled the case for the money my wife deserved. Alex was great, he always returned our calls and was there when we needed him. I have since referred other friends to him and would use him again.
Alexhelper - Most Honest Attorney I Know. I have known Alex for about 18 years. A client made me executor of her will. The rest is history. Alex has since helped me with a civic matter and some family law. Alex has always impressed me with his honesty and high integrity.
cathbank - I was well taken care of. It makes me feel good when someone from Law Offices of Alex B. Scheingross calls and asks, “How are you feeling?” I have never had calls like that before from an attorney, and it just brightens your day.
ahille1 - Very Professional and to the Point. After going through two attorneys for my brother's trust, my brother-in-law, highly recommended Alex. I found that Alex was always straight forward and to the point. Right from the start, he wasted no time telling me what couldn't be accomplished, what needed to be done, and what would be too expensive to undertake. Alex responded quickly and wasted no time.
annamarie@teamj - Sleepless Nights Were Taken Away by Alex....... Alex Scheingross and asst., Annette, listened and allowed us to tell them about our problem(Family Trust)and gave us options that were great. We selected him because of his honesty, warmth, down to earth communicator and we knew he would put to rest the unnecessary family problem. He was highly recommended by our "general attorney" and he met all of our expections personnally and financially. We would use him again, if needed. Thank-You Alex Scheingross, George & Anna Marie Linder
nadd11 - GREAT ADVICE. Had the pleasure of talking to Alex Scheingross last week about a fall I took on a city sidewalk which had some hazardous upliftings. He patiently explained alternatives that I had. I felt that he had my best interest in mind, rather than obtaining another client, I have not decided what I will do, but if I pursue this case I would seek him out.
Rummagebox - Knowledgeable, professional, tenacious, caring. Mr. Scheingross handled my personal injury case stemming from a severe freeway accident. I am very happy with the results he obtained for me. In my opinion, he is extremely knowledgeable and effective, and he sincerely cares for his clients.
