Alex grew up in Atoka, Oklahoma, and graduated from Tushka High School. He moved to Ada to attend college in 2015 and graduated from East Central University with a degree in political science and legal studies in 2019. After graduating from ECU, Alex moved to Oklahoma City for law school. Now that he’s graduated from law school and passed the bar, he has returned to Ada where he is eager to begin his legal career!

Alex loves learning, especially when it comes to the study and practice of law. He graduated with honors from Oklahoma City University School of Law in 2022 and while there he earned a certificate in Public Law, as well as 3 CALI awards for receiving the highest score in his Evidence, First Amendment, and Employment Law courses. He also enjoys the writing process and serves as a Distinguished Member of the Oklahoma City University Law Review, which led to his Comment, McIntosh v. Watkins: Oklahoma’s Treble with Statutory Interpretation, being selected for publication in the Law Review’s Fall 2022 issue.

At graduation, the faculty of OCU Law voted to award Alex with the Distinguished Student Award which is given to the “energetic member of the law school who is the most likely to make a significant contribution to the legal profession.” Alex is honored by this distinction and hopes to maintain a reputation characterized by his enthusiasm and willingness to help others.

Finally, Alex has experience in state, tribal, and federal court, and he even worked as a student clerk for two federal magistrate judges at the United States District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma. Currently he is admitted to practice in the District Courts of Oklahoma, the Chickasaw Nation, and the Western District of Oklahoma.
