While attending Gonzaga University School of Law, Alexander Biel began his focus on criminal defense and international law. He externed at the Federal Defenders of Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho, where he diligently worked with supervising attorneys on federal felony cases.  He appeared in federal court as lead counsel for petty offense cases, and has worked well with prosecutors in resolving issues expeditiously.  His primary focus in Spokane is criminal law. He can speak fluent German, and is proficient in Spanish as well.

Alex was born in Spokane, Washington.  After graduating from Lewis and Clark High School, Alex studied foreign languages at the University of Idaho. Upon graduation, he moved to Austria to teach English as a second language with the Fulbright Commission. Once his visa expired, however, he returned home to help manage the family business, Urbanna Natural Salon and Spa.  It was only at this time that he decided a legal education would allow him to continue to positively impact the lives of the community in which he lives.  

When Alex isn’t working, he enjoys travelling, snowboarding, golf, chess, and climbing.

I cant thank you enough
I hired Alex after meeting with four different attorneys. He seemed the most knowledgeable, and was not going to break my bank. He broke down my options for me, and was very patient with me if I needed things explained more than once. I got the results I was looking for, and the anxiety one can go through while in a legal battle, was no match for Alex. Thank you Alex very much. You are great at what you do.

Simply the best!!!!
Alex exceeded all expectations in every aspect of my case. He is respected and highly recommended amongst his peers. Couldn't have asked for a better outcome in my case as I didn't even have to step foot in court. A job well done.

CDL Violation
Alex was recommended to me. I appreciated being able to contact Alex by phone, and set up a consultation. Alex said he thought he could help me, and I agreed with him. I hired Alex to represent me. He worked through the process, and was able to get my case dismissed without prejudice. The best outcome I could hope for. Now, I hired Alex again, to help me restore my gun rights. I am confident we will be successful.

I am so glad I had Alex to represent me for my DUI case. He very upfront and encouraging through out my case and I believe I did get the results possible with his guidance. My case ended up having some new issues involving the probation portion which he stuck it out with me from beginning to the very end which was more than appreciated. Thx

Speeding Tickets
I hired Alex to resolve both of my daughters' speeding tickets. One was in Spokane and the other out of Ritzville. We live in the Seattle area and never had to return to Spokane or Ritzville to appear in court. Alex was able to resolve the tickets quickly and professionally, keeping us informed regularly and making it so our insurance wasn't affected. I would definitely recommend Alex Biel Law for handling infractions! Always keep us informed, very fair price for all the work he did and time he saved us!

Excellent Lawyer
Alex was a great choice. I needed help getting a record vacated and reinstating my gun rights. He was very professional and always kept me informed. He made the process quick, efficient and affordable. I would highly recommend him.

Amazing Job Thank you
We have been working with Alex for over a year involving an anti-harassment case with a neighbor. This was a complex and difficult issue, and had been to court 4 times. Alex took over approximately a year ago after the 3rd court hearing. He advised us, corresponded with us during the year and represented us in the 4th hearing. Alex was exceptionally prepared for the hearing, and represented us to the fullest extent. We finally got relief to our issue, and will continue to utilize his services until the issue with the neighbor is fully resolved. Without Alex’s patience, ability to communicate his strategies and, his extreme professionalism we would still be in this nightmare. We appreciate his assistance so much and I would recommend this attorney to anyone.

Amazing lawyer
Alex Biel was an amazing lawyer to have on my side. He was very knowledgeable and helpful with my case. He always was available whenever I had questions. He was able to get my felony case dismissed before going to trial. I would highly recommend to anyone who needs a strong criminal defense lawyer.

Landlord's woes
Renters from hell. Have you ever had them? Well we did, and thankfully Alex was there to help us out. Biel & Cassel is an excellent firm. Both Alex and Stu were heavily involved, easy to get a hold of, worked after hours, and were very attentive. We got a quick resolution and the renters have finally moved on.

I had and assault charge that I brought to Alex. From the initial consult I knew that Alex would be the right attorney for my case. He was able to get my case dissmissed before it went to trial. Would recommend! Thanks Alex!!

Can’t get ahold of him
Did the bare minimum. Tried to get ahold of him after my case. Simply doesn’t return calls text or emails. Nothing but broken promises. “Call me after a year of probation and I’ll get the second year knocked off for you and they’ll give you a refund for the probation fees that you paid ahead of time for!” Seems great at first, really didn’t do much for my case.
