Attorney Alex Cornwell

V-26Alex is a native of St. Louis, Missouri and devotes his practice to representing fellow members of the community. He began his career at one of the largest law firms in St. Louis where he defended Fortune 500 companies and large corporations in complex commercial litigation. During this time, Alex found himself often sympathizing with the consumers and individuals who were injured. To pursue his passion, he founded Brody & Cornwell and now focuses solely on representing consumers against large corporations, dishonest car dealerships, and abusive debt collectors. Alex makes it a point to sit down to get to know the clients he represents on each of his cases.

Alex has litigated hundreds of cases within the state and federal courts in Missouri and Illinois and is a member of the Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys. He graduated with his bachelor’s degree from Fontbonne University, summa cum laude. After obtaining his undergraduate degree, he served within the Consumer Protection Division of the Missouri Attorney General’s Office where he witnessed, first-hand, the pervasive issue of dishonest businesses taking advantage of Missouri consumers.

Alex is a proud graduate of the University of Missouri School of Law. He was one of only two students in his graduating class to be inducted into the Order of the Coif (Top 10% of his class) and the Order of the Barristers (demonstrated excellence in trial and advocacy). He is a published author of multiple legal articles and was lead articles editor of the Missouri Law Review.

Alex lives on The Hill with his wife, Nikki, and their daughter. He loves all things St. Louis, from Cardinals baseball to thin-crust pizza.
