Mary Alexander & Associates, P.C.
44 Montgomery Street
Most lawyers take on a case – a few take on a cause. Over the past 30 years, Mary Alexander has earned a national reputation for her work protecting consumer rights, winning the respect of clients and colleagues alike. A past president of both the Association of Trial Lawyers of America and the Consumer Attorneys of California, Mary’s career – both in and out of the courtroom – has focused on one thing: ensuring that those who have been harmed by the negligent, preventable actions of others get their day in court – and get the answers, and justice, they deserve.
In the process, Mary has built a notable record of success, both before juries and at the negotiation table. Some of the highlights include:
A $45 million verdict for a San Mateo victim, who had her neck broken, was paralyzed for life, and became a quadriplegic when her car was struck by a driver speeding through a red lightA $13.3 million verdict for a severely injured client in Hall v. Yosemite Park and Curry Company, in which faulty bicycle brakes triggered a crash resulting in quadriplegiaA $5.5 million settlement for a long haul trucker was run over by another trucker while outside of the cab of his rig safely locking and inspecting his load.A $4 million settlement in a San Francisco Municipal Railway accident, Landsverk v. CCSFA $4 million settlement in a pedestrian accident, Ruszak v. State Farm
But it’s not just the results that have made Mary one of California’s most sought-after trial attorneys. It’s also a unique combination of capabilities and compassion that few lawyers can bring to their cases – or their clients. A scientist before she studied law, Mary leverages her technical background in every matter she takes on, and is well known for her ability to explain complicated theories to juries – and for using high-tech courtroom exhibits that help make difficult points easy to comprehend. She’s taken on cases other lawyers won’t, or can’t – such as child sex abuse cases – and assisted clients from all walks of life. Because someone who has been harmed is someone who should be helped.
Along the way, Mary, a graduate of Santa Clara University Law School, has been recognized repeatedly by her peers, and the press, for her work. Her awards and honors include:
