Experienced Litigator, Counselor, and Crisis Manager

BigLaw Experience

Until starting a successful solo practice in January 2013 that grew into Medina McKelvey, Alex spent nearly his entire career with large, international firms in Los Angeles and Sacramento—most recently DLA Piper.

Complex Litigation Expertise

Alex excels in handling cases with complicated and novel legal and factual issues in every area of the law, on both sides of a case. He’s skilled at quickly becoming immersed in the applicable law of a given case as well as at learning his clients’ particular business and industry. He’s successfully represented some of the largest companies in California and the United States in multi-million dollar lawsuits.

Advice and Counsel Experience

Alex is skilled in helping individuals, businesses, and public agencies with advice and problem solving, to help prevent litigation before it happens. He draws on his 15 years of litigation experience to advise and counsel clients on the nuances of various legal issues, including employment law, ethical issues, as well as compliance with various discovery and document production and preservation obligations.

Accomplished Advocate

Alex has been praised in the legal community for his legal writing, including his unparalleled attention to detail. He has scored many victories for his clients “on the papers.” He’s also a skilled oral advocate: he’s quick on his feet, knows his way around a courtroom, and doesn’t lose his temper.

“Few lawyers anywhere can match Alex’s litigation skills. And he can flat-out write.”
