Rodney Alexander, a founder of Alexander Ricks PLLC, is a nearly native Charlottean who graduated from West Charlotte High School. He earned his law degree in 1988 at the University of Houston Law Center in Houston, Texas, where he graduated cum laude, was a University of Houston Law Review editor and excelled in oral advocacy skills, winning (along with his partner) the moot court competition as a second-year law student.

Prior to forming Alexander Ricks PLLC, Mr. Alexander was a partner at an AmLaw 100 international law firm where was the Charlotte office litigation practice leader, a member of the recruiting committee, and a member of the pro bono committee.

Mr. Alexander developed an early commitment to public service and to pro bono service commitments that he has maintained throughout his career. From 1998 through May 2000, Mr. Alexander demonstrated his commitment to public service by serving as an assistant district attorney in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. While serving as an assistant district attorney, Mr. Alexander honed his trial skills with more than forty felony jury trials and more than one hundred non-felony bench trials.  In 2003, Mr. Alexander filed a pro bono lawsuit on behalf of the Humane Society of Union County, Inc. against the operator of a puppy mill. As a result, the puppy mill was shut down and 256 dogs were rescued from cruel and inhumane conditions.

Mr. Alexander believes in keeping his commitments. Thus, he believes it is important to balance the practice of law with the commitments he has made to his family. Mr. Alexander is married to a wonderful woman who is a physician and a breast cancer survivor. He and his wife have three children, ages 19, 17 and 14. Mr. Alexander is an avid outdoorsman, who loves hiking, camping, boating (canoeing, kayaking, sailing and motor boating), beaching and any legal manner of fishing. Mr. Alexander has camped in many places from Alaska to North Carolina and has summited Mount Rainier.
