Alex Grager, CFLS*

Partner Family Law

Alex Grager is a Certified Family Law Specialist with experience in every type of dispute between couples, in married and non-married relationships. He represents clients in all stages of family law proceedings and specializes in high conflict custody cases, complex property issues, and matters involving domestic violence.  His litigated cases include several international child custody disputes, one of which resulted in a published appellate decision, and a multi-million-dollar breach of fiduciary duties.

Alex understands that family law involves some of life’s most difficult transitions.  He listens to the client’s objectives and develops a strategy for each unique situation, with the end goal in mind, and an eye towards minimizing the emotional impact of divorce. His psychology background helps him focus on the client’s needs and offer appropriate solutions.

Alex often involves other professionals such as forensic accountants, financial advisors and mental-health professionals to ensure his clients have the best all-around representation.  He believes in strong advocacy and uses various forms of alternative dispute resolution to achieve a negotiated outcome. If a reasonable settlement is not within reach, Alex carefully prepares and presents the case and vigorously protects his client’s rights in court.

Alex Grager is a member of the Association of Certified Family Law Specialists, Los Angeles County Bar Association and the Beverly Hills Bar Association, where he serves on the Family Law Executive Committee. His honors include the Beverly Hills Bar Association Lawrence J. Blake award for his community service, as well as a number of accolades for his work through the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles. Alex regularly presents on family law and related areas at continuing legal education programs.
