Alex primarily practices in the firm’s Family Law Section. Prior to joining Spengler Nathanson, Alex worked for Judge David Lewandowski as a staff attorney at the Lucas County Domestic Relations Court. While there, he saw the divorce and family law process from the court’s perspective, and worked to help keep the docket running efficiently. Today, Alex uses that perspective to help our family law clients effectively navigate through their cases. Alex also serves as a CASA/Guardian Ad Litem in family law cases, and represents the interests of children, including those who may be adjudicated to be dependent, neglected, or abused.
Before his court clerkship, Alex worked at Wagoner & Steinberg as a legal assistant, and then as an attorney. In addition to family law, Alex worked in a wide variety of civil litigation areas, including probate law, personal injury law, property law, and civil appeals. His litigation knowledge and experience is a useful tool in assisting clients with their family law issues.
Alex graduated from the University of Toledo College of Law in 2015. For his undergraduate education, he attended Eastern Michigan University for Paralegal Studies.

Child custody litigation can occur in the Domestic Relations Court or in the Juvenile Court between natural parents, grandparents and other relatives. Our attorneys can assist those in need of applying for custody or challenging the custody of another.
Legal custodians of children can be awarded child support prior to separation for married couples, during a divorce, and when parentage has been established in the Juvenile court. Spengler Nathanson has experienced attorneys who understand child support laws and can assist clients having issues related to child support.
Ohio law permits a dissolution of marriage when all issues of child custody, spousal support and property division are agreed to by both the husband and the wife. A dissolution of marriage can be obtained between thirty and ninety days after filing with the court. If you are a resident of Ohio for six months and of your current county for ninety days before filing a Petition for Dissolution, our attorneys can help you through this process.
At its most basic, a divorce is a legal process by which two parties terminate their legal and financial relationship. But each divorce is unique and most involve disputes over things like child custody or division of property. Our attorneys are committed to supporting their clients through an intensely emotional process
Domestic violence occurs when a family member or household member attempts to cause or recklessly causes bodily injury to another family or household member. Domestic violence can also occur when a family or household member places another family or household member in fear of imminent serious physical harm due to a threat of force or actual physical force. Our attorneys can assist those who have been a victim of domestic violence to help them enforce their rights in these matters.
A name change can occur during a divorce proceeding in Domestic Relations Court, in a parentage proceeding in Juvenile Court and when a child is adopted in Probate Court. Sometimes adults choose to change their names or a parent wishes to change the last name of their child. Our attorneys can assist you whenever a name change is right for your or your family.
Prior to marriage, couples may want to define rights to property or support in the event of divorce or upon death. A properly drafted prenuptial agreement can protect your property interests. Our attorneys have significant experience helping clients navigate the decisions to be made when drafting a prenuptial agreement.
When unmarried and divorcing couples desire to share decision-making authority regarding their child’s or children’s lives, a Shared Parenting Plan will define each parent's possessory schedule of the child or children, support, medical and educational issues. We can help identify the issues and draft a Shared Parenting Plan that will benefit the parents and children.
