Alex graduated from UBC Law in 2012 and after a year of clerking with the B.C. Supreme Court he joined Farris Vaugh Willis & Murphy LLP in Vancouver. When Alex’s colleague Leisha Murphy decided to open her own law firm, Connect Family Law, he jumped at the chance to join her as their views on family law firmly aligned. Connect believes family law is not just a legal dispute between two people, it’s a life-changing event, and they treat it as such. The philosophy behind Connect Law is looking at the whole person, and the whole picture, to find solutions suited to the unique needs of every family.
