Alex was helpful
Thank you so much. Alex helped me negotiate the purchase of a business. As a small business owner, I had so many questions about starting a corporation and negotiating the purchase of a larger business. He explained everything to me in easy to understand language. He made sure to answer all my questions, big and small. I couldn't have done it without him.

Working With Alex Has Been Great!
I have created a couple different companies and ventures in the past several years and some of those ventures required various types of contracts and agreements. Alex worked with me to uncover exactly what direction I was going in and helped me to decide which directions seemed best for what I was looking to accomplish and was then able to produce a clear and effective plan and set of contracts which would best protect me and also keep the interests of all parties in mind. Alex also worked in a timely and responsive manner. Alex is well versed in his field and a creative, outside of the box thinker. I highly recommend his services.

I have used Alexander many times over the past few years and he has never disappointed. His vast knowledge of the law and ability to come up with effective strategies has always impressed me and given the results that I have been looking for. His work ethic and attention to detail is the best I have seen compared to other lawyers I have worked with. If you have a challenging case and need a good Lawyer Alexander is a great choice!!

Smart, Fast, Excellent
Alex has the ability to quickly gain both deep and intuitive understanding of complex litigation subjects to advocate for his clients. He can do so successfully against large law firms with more resources, because he is smart and motivated purely to act in his clients best interest, with none of the red tape, expense and lack of responsiveness found at many firms (no 2 days clearing conflicts here). Alex has successfully represented us in complex, high stakes litigation against a large corporation. He is quick to respond to our needs, and is an invaluable part of our legal resources.

Mr. Alex Papaefthimiou was an indispensable asset to my trial victory.
The issue I went to battle over was a complex one that would impact my reputation and many thousands of fellow homeowners. As a first-time plaintiff in a trial, the experience was all new to me. On top of that, I was personally taking on the equivalent of City Hall (and their pocketbooks). The matter between me and the defendant was highly contentious, volatile and it was publicized weekly in the local media. This was a must-win situation for me. My observation is that the way attorneys implement their tactics is very similar to military battles. My opposition was the large, unwieldy and slow moving Goliath who could not keep pace with Alex, who was the equivalent of a special forces unit. While the opposition’s counsel was a well-respected firm with top attorneys, they were no match against Alex who was 1) more knowledgeable on the law, 2) more effective in his communications and 3) more nimble in his attack methods. These three advantages were the key to leading the judge to her decision in our favor. With respect to the client-attorney interaction, Alex was always reachable, easy to communicate with, efficient in his work and cool under pressure. I had been referred to Alex by a trusted friend. Now that my victory has been secured and I have seen how talented he is, I can whole-heartedly advise to anyone that Alex is an attorney you want on your team.

Thorough researcher, excellent writer, part of our team
Alex provided us with a thoroughly researched brief on very technical issues and complicated facts. He also gave us suggestions on other issues that we had not identified or asked him to research, but which turned out to be particularly helpful in our analysis and disposition of the case. We were successful in reaching a settlement shortly after we filed our motion for summary judgment. He truly became part of our team.

Alex Papaefthimiou is an Excellent Ligitagion Attorney
In my role as General Counsel of a local San Diego based company, I had the pleasure to hire Alex Papaefthimiou on multiple occasions and evaluate him as his client. Mr. Papaefthimiou is a very hard working, bright attorney who understands the need to use practical approaches to get good results in litigation. He always provided good input with respect to litigation strategy and produced a quality work product. He knows how to be an aggressive advocate without getting personally involved. Overall, I think very highly of Mr. Papaefthimiou as both a person and an attorney and would highly recommend him to anyone that may be in need of his services.
