Alex Ackel



Alex joined Friedman | Rubin as the firm’s second “Moe Levine Fellow of Trial Advocacy.” The award honors one of the greatest trial lawyers of the 20th Century and is given to young lawyers showing great promise as future trial lawyers. Alex focuses his practice on medical malpractice, civil rights, products liability, and personal injury.

In 2016, Alex earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of California, Irvine School of Law. He received his undergraduate degree, summa cum laude, also from the University of California, Irvine. Alex is admitted to practice law in the State of California and Washington.

While in law school, Alex served as an Article Editor for the UC Irvine Law Review and authored a law review note entitled, “Extending Liability to the Micro-Manufacturers of the Future: Applying the Casual Seller Exception in the Context of 3D Printing.” Additionally, Alex received the award of “Best Advocate” in the UC Irvine School of Law Mock Trial Competition.

Alex is most proud of his work in his school’s Community and Economic Development Clinic, where he helped a group of migrant farm workers stay in their homes and obtain safe and reliable electricity and drinking water.
