Alex joined the firm as an associate in October 2013. A Timonium native and a graduate of Dulaney High School, Alex attended Stanford University and the Georgetown University Law Center before returning to his Maryland roots. After majoring in English and minoring in math as an undergrad, Alex is comfortable analyzing, researching, drafting, and editing documents, while also grasping the statistical and other quantitative issues facing businesses of all sizes.
Alex spent time shadowing circuit court and federal magistrate judges in Maryland and worked for four summers in college at a boutique litigation firm in Towson before going to law school. While at Georgetown, Alex participated in moot court competitions, was a member of The Georgetown Law Journal and Executive Editor of Georgetown’s Annual Review of Criminal Procedure, and served as a research assistant to three professors. 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 with The Honorable A. Franklin Burgess, Jr. in D.C. Superior Court and The Honorable Patrick L. Woodward on the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, respectively.
Alex’s passion for labor and employment law began nearly 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 efficient strategies designed to minimize risk and potential exposure for our clients, advising the employers we represent 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, the FMLA, the ADA, the ADEA, as well as state and local human rights and wage and hour statutes in Maryland and the District of Columbia.
Alex currently resides in Silver Spring with his wife Mikah, who recently obtained a Masters in Political Communication from Johns Hopkins and who works on a variety of civic action issues. Alex enjoys running, is an enthusiastic Orioles and Ravens fan, and plays the piano in his free time.
