Alex joined the firm as an associate in October 2013. A Timonium native and Dulaney High School graduate, Alex attended Stanford University (B.A. in English; minor in Math, 2008) where he was active on the Mock Trial team, and the Georgetown University Law Center (2011) before returning to his Maryland roots.
Alex spent time shadowing circuit court and federal magistrate judges and worked at a boutique litigation firm in Towson during his college summers. During law school, Alex participated in moot court competitions, was a member of The Georgetown Law Journal and an Executive Editor of Georgetown’s Annual Review of Criminal Procedure, and served as a research assistant to Professors James Forman, Jr., Victoria Nourse, and Wallace Mlyniec. Alex also brings with him judicial clerkship experience at the administrative, trial and appellate levels, following an internship at the D.C. Commission on Human Rights and clerkships in D.C. Superior Court (with The Honorable A. Franklin Burgess, Jr.) and the Maryland Court of Special Appeals (The Honorable Patrick L. Woodward).
Alex’s passion for labor and employment law began over a decade ago when he observed a trial before then-Magistrate Judge Paul W. Grimm involving “reverse” race discrimination and age discrimination claims. He recognizes the value of using practical and efficient strategies designed to minimize risk and potential exposure for our clients, advising employers on their legal obligations while keeping them free to pursue those business practices that allow them to be successful in the first place.
Alex is familiar with issues arising under Title VII of the Civil Rights of 1964, the FLSA, FMLA, ADA, and ADEA, as well as state and local employment law and wage and hour statutes, with a concentration on Maryland and the District of Columbia. He is a frequent contributor to Matthew Bender’s Labor and Employment Bulletin and a member of the Litigation and Labor & Employment Sections of the Maryland State Bar Association.
Alex lives in Silver Spring with his wonderful wife Mikah, who has a Masters in Political Communication from Johns Hopkins and works on a variety of civic action issues. Alex is a proud father. In his free time, Alex volunteers with the D.C. Youth Human Rights Ambassador program and tutors local elementary school students. Alex also enjoys running and playing the piano and is an enthusiastic Orioles and Ravens fan.
