Our Success Record

Some law firms measure success in dollars. We measure it in the way we change lives. At Mary Alexander & Associates, our philosophy is simple: Every case, from the routine to the most complicated, gets our best efforts – and the benefits of over half a century of collective insight, knowledge, creativity, and street smarts. We’re tireless advocates and dedicated advisers, using the latest in courtroom technology to explain complex events and theories to juries – and getting our client’s voice, and side, heard. Over the years, we’ve obtained significant verdicts and settlements – including some important multimillion-dollar ones. But we’ve also gotten answers – and accountability. In the process, we haven’t just won cases, but earned a reputation among the bar, and the respect of our clients. Below are just a few of our recoveries on behalf of our clients.
