After years of study and preparation he accomplished something that very few Argentinean lawyers were able to do, when he passed the California Bar Exam as a foreign educated attorney. 

Presently Alex practices law in California and in Argentina, and is proudly an active member of the California State Bar Association, the San Diego County Bar Association, and the State Bar of the Province of Santa Fe, Argentina.

Alex is always trying to make a positive difference in the community, and for that reason he makes himself available for non-profit mentoring program like the "Color of Justice".

Flying is one of his greatest passions (he holds a Private Pilot license, and was a flying instructor accredited by the USUA). On most Sundays you will find him skydiving with his friends at Perris airport (he holds a class "D"-expert level- license) enjoying a skydiving formation over a beautiful California sunset. “We have two lives, and the second begins when we realize we only have one" (Confucius).
