Alexandra McLeod is an associate with the firm with many years of litigation experience. 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 insured and self-insured individuals and companies in auto accident, transportation, premises and products liability cases, and well as catastrophic injury cases of all sorts and has taken several cases to verdict. Ms. McLeod is also well-versed in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and serves as a panel member of the Clark County Court-Annexed Arbitration Program.
Ms. McLeod brings a worldview to her legal practice, as the McLeods moved to Saudi Arabia and had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the Middle East, Europe, and the U.S. through her youth and college years. Having finished her undergraduate work in just three years, Ms. McLeod returned to northern California to study law at the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento. There she distinguished herself as a published author in the McGeorge Law Review, and, later, as an editor of The Transnational Lawyer and a governing board member at the student-run Community Legal Services. Also while in law school, Ms. McLeod served as an extern clerk to the Honorable Judge Roger Hunt of the U.S. District Court in Las Vegas.
In her free time, Ms. McLeod still loves to travel, is an avid San Francisco 49ers fan, and volunteers at her local church.
