Alex Berger – Bankruptcy Attorney

Founder and Managing Attorney

Alex spent his childhood and early adulthood working for his father in title insurance in eastern Iowa. He obtained his J.D. from Indiana University School of Law. While in law school, he coached the college policy debate team, was President of the Moot Court Society, and was Executive Production Editor of the Indiana Health Law Review. He also clerked for a criminal law professor and a criminal defense attorney during law school.

After becoming a lawyer, Alex and his wife lived in Chicago, Mason City, Iowa, and Davenport, Iowa. In 2014, Alex joined the RT Cox Law Firm in Gillette, Wyoming, as an associate attorney. There, he gained experience representing both individuals and businesses in trial litigation with a focus on oil and gas issues.

In 2016, Alex founded his own law firm. For two years, he focused on bankruptcy and family law under the mentorship of Felix Sowada and Dwight Hurich, both of whom had practiced for over 35 years. In 2018, Alex was elected Weston County Attorney where he prosecuted crimes, petitions for juvenile intervention, and counseled the county on civil matters part time while maintaining his bankruptcy work. Alex Berger also performs investigative services for the Wyoming Board of Professional Engineers and Professional Land Surveyors and the Wyoming Mental Health Professions Licensing Board regarding complaints against licensed professionals. In Wyoming, he focuses his law practice on helping people file personal bankruptcy.

Alex lives near Lake Superior in Marquette, Michigan, with his wife and two children. He enjoys being outdoors with his family. He manages his Wyoming firm mostly remotely, but he visits his office and staff in Gillette often. Alex also maintains a boutique criminal law practice in Michigan.
