Most lawyers take on a case - a few take on a cause. Over the past 25 years, Mary Alexander has earned a national reputation for her work protecting consumer rights, winning the respect of clients and colleagues alike. A past president of both the Association of Trial Lawyers of America and the Consumer Attorneys of California, Mary's career - both in and out of the courtroom - has focused on one thing: ensuring that those who have been harmed by the negligent, preventable actions of others get their day in court - and get the answers, and justice, they deserve. In the process, Mary has built a notable record of success, both before juries and at the negotiation table. Mary also possesses a combination of capabilities and compassion that few lawyers can bring to their cases - or their clients. A scientist before she studied law, Mary leverages her technical background in every matter she takes on, and is well known for her ability to explain complicated theories to juries - and for using high-tech courtroom exhibits that help make difficult points easy to comprehend. She's taken on cases other lawyers won't, or can't - such as child sex abuse cases - and assisted clients from all walks of life. Because someone who has been harmed is someone who should be helped.
