Biography

Alex Cabeceiras has dedicated his practice to advocating for employees, consumers, victims of fraud, and those brave enough to speak out against fraud and discrimination. Alex has represented individuals through the SEC, DOL, and EEOC administrative forums as well as before the highest courts in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Alex takes great pride in representing victims of sexual harassment or discrimination who have suffered due to their race, religion, sexual orientation, age, or gender. He has recovered millions of dollars for such victims.

On many of the firm’s biggest cases, Alex and Derek work as a team, a sort of “dynamic duo” that form the best plan of attack against wealthy Defendants including multi-billion-dollar entities.

Alex’s approach is simple. He demands top dollar for his clients’ cases because he is confident, he can obtain top dollar if the case goes to trial. Clients say Alex has a very nice and comfortable way about him that puts them at ease. Still, defense attorneys know him as a ferocious adversary. Alex has been known to be a lamb in the office and a lion in the courtroom.

Interesting fact about Alex:

Alex loves to play competitive soccer in his free time.
