equipped for growth, ready for challenges

Alex has personal experience handling all aspects of litigation, from drafting initial pleadings, managing discovery, taking depositions, writing dispositive motions, and actually trying the case to a jury. He joined Stone Hilton from an elite commercial trial boutique based in Houston, Texas. Within the last year alone, he participated in two jury trials, a bench trial, and two preliminary injunction hearings. His most recent accomplishments included delivering the opening statement in a victorious jury trial defending a breach of contract case that was heavily covered by Law360. He also successfully received a temporary injunction preventing a debtor from fraudulently transferring collateral in a secured credit case after directing witnesses for the plaintiff.

Other experience includes defending a jury trial in the Central District of California in a trade secret and patent case, prosecuting a preliminary injunction hearing in the Southern District of Texas in a trademark case, prosecuting a jury trial in Travis County in a tortious interference with contract case, and spearheading bankruptcy hearings in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Alex’s experience also includes employment disputes, business torts, and disputes in the oil and gas industry.

Alex received his bachelor’s degrees from the University of Buffalo in Mathematics and Economics, while minoring in History. He went on to study law at the Columbia Law School, graduating with Stone Scholar honors each year. There he also served as the Columbia Federalist Society’s Chair of the Madison (Judicial) Lecture Series and as the Vice-President of Devinimus, the law school’s wine society.

After graduating, Alex worked at a top international law firm in New York, before leaving to clerk for the Honorable Charles Eskridge in the Southern District of Texas. As an inaugural law clerk, Alex had the privilege to help Judge Eskridge set up his chambers all while working through some of the most challenging cases the District saw fit for reassignment.
