Alex’s goal in working with BALIF is to foster a sense of community amongst all LGBT folks and our allies in the law, and simultaneously to be of service to this community. He seeks to increase diverse representation from law schools and firms alike in helping develop the future leadership in the legal world and the world at large.
Law Student Rep
Alex grew up in the Bay Area and has never lived outside of it. After attending UC Berkeley for his undergraduate degree in geography, he immediately moved back to San Francisco. After working as a drag queen, a double-decker bus tour guide, and an Uber driver, Alex had a stroke of luck on the day of the Windsor and Perry Supreme Court decisions in June 2013, and met the man of his dreams, Kevin, under the marquee at the Castro Theater. Four months later, with his partner by his side, Alex took the LSAT, and the rest is history.
Today, Alex is a 2L student at Golden Gate University School of Law in San Francisco. This year he is the co-chair of GGU’s Pride Law, and also sits on the board of the Jewish Law Student Association and the Society of Litigators. He is externing at the Eviction Defense Collaborative, and is seeking a career in real estate litigation. Alex lives with his partner in the Castro.
In his spare time, Alex is a huge San Francisco history buff, practices cartography and bookbinding, and tries out for Jeopardy every chance he gets.
