Alex’s favorite quote comes from Randy Pausch: “We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand.” This shapes how he views his role as an attorney in real estate and transactional law. He looks at all the cards in every deal, analyzes the situation, and develops a strategy to get the best possible outcome for his clients.
Being an attorney runs in Alex’s blood. He knew from a young age that he wanted to be a lawyer like his grandfather, father, and uncle. Having grown up in Iowa, the state is especially close to his heart. Alex enjoys the unique opportunity of working in a community that’s given so much to him.
Alex says, “I want to really relate to people, so I can better understand them. This helps me identify a client’s needs and create a better relationship. I can always help parties find common ground. I put myself into the shoes of another person to better understand what they truly want, and that’s huge for helping someone achieve their goals or solve their problem.”
