As a member of Verrill Dana’s Private Clients & Fiduciary Services Group, Alex focuses his practice on all aspects of estate and gift planning, trust administration, and probate. He counsels clients on wealth management and transfer strategies, tax planning, and charitable giving.

Alex’s commitment to serving others and his passion for solving difficult problems grounds his work for clients. Even before going to law school, Alex engaged in complex problem solving on behalf of Maine people by working as a U.S. Senate staffer to fund large-scale transportation projects in the state.

Alex earned his law degree magna cum laude from Boston College Law School, where he served as an Articles Editor on the Boston College Law Review. During his time in law school, Alex participated in Boston College’s Community Enterprise Clinic, where he helped clients solve corporate organizational issues, establish Internet policies, and obtain proper licensing to do business in Massachusetts. Alex was an active participant in Boston College Law School’s student government, serving as the school’s President during his third year. Following his first year, Alex worked as a judicial intern for United States District Court Judge Jon D. Levy of the District of Maine.

Prior to attending law school, Alex was a Legislative Aide to United States Senator Angus S. King, Jr. (I-ME). As Senator King’s primary advisor on transportation and infrastructure issues, Alex prepared the Senator for speeches on the Senate floor, corresponded with senior Administration officials, and became well-versed on transportation funding mechanisms.

Alex lives in Portland and enjoys baking, reading, and staying physically active, both indoors and out.
