Alexandra's Exemplary Legal Experience

Alexandra “Alex” McLeod is an AV-rated (highest possible rating for both legal ability and ethics) attorney with almost 20 years experience. Having worked at law firms on both sides of the bar (representing both plaintiffs and defendants) in Las Vegas, NV, she has built a reputation for working with passion and persistence on behalf of her clients and for delivering straightforward advice in every case. She is tenacious in her advocacy of individuals and companies in auto accident, transportation, premises and products liability cases, and well as catastrophic injury cases of all sorts and has taken many of those cases to jury verdict. While dauntless in the courtroom, Alex is also well-versed in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and formerly served as a panel member of the Clark County Court-Annexed Arbitration Program. She has also handled several matters through appeal, and has had the distinction of twice arguing before the Nevada Supreme Court.

In addition, Alex currently serves on the boards of directors for the Las Vegas Defense Lawyers and Southern Nevada Association of Women Attorneys, as well as chairs the Bench-Bar Committee for the Eighth Judicial District (Clark County) Court. Alex brings a worldview to her legal practice, as Alex moved to Saudi Arabia and was given the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the Middle East, Europe, and the U.S. through her youth and college years. During her adventures, she got to see some of the wonders of the world and also saw firsthand the systems of justice and government in other parts of the globe.
