He has an interest in computers and all things electronic, which lead him to study Computer Science and Law in a double degree at the University of New England. Upon completing his degrees he moved to Sydney to complete a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice through The College of Law. Following his further legal training, he began working in Sydney on conveyancing, property law and wills and estates matters. He moved to Newcastle to join a local firm in early 2010 where he gained further experience in personal injury, civil litigation and victims of crime matters.
In late 2011, after moving to a mid-tier law firm in Newcastle, Alex began practising almost exclusively in contested wills, contested probate and equitable claims in the Supreme Court. He also completed a Masters in Applied Laws (Wills and Estates) through the College of Law in Sydney in late 2014.
