Overview

Alex authored “North Carolina Coastal Conversation: Intrusion on Littoral Property Owners’ Rights or Protection of Public Enjoyment?”, Appalachian Natural Resources Law Journal, Volume IV, Issue 1, 2010.

He co-authored material for a CLE entitled “Partnership and Shareholder Disputes from Start to Finish.”

During law school, he was a teaching and research assistant for a professor who taught legal writing. He also served as an Honor Court Justice, SBA Vice-President, Criminal Law Society President, and Associate Editor for the Appalachian Journal of Law.

Alex Williams was born and raised in Western North Carolina. While growing up he played baseball and soccer, and was active skiing and mountain biking. Weather permitting, Alex can still be found mountain biking and skiing. During his childhood days, he was known for his X-Game style both on a mountain bike and skis. While he may not mountain bike and ski as much as he would like, he is still quite the dare devil and can “throw down” a few tricks here and there.

Alex came to Raleigh to attend N.C. State University, and fell in love with both the school and the city. Alex is a loyal Wolfpack fan and attends nearly every home football game, and tries to attend at least one away game per year. Alex also enjoys the atmosphere of the re-vamped downtown Raleigh as well as the many parks and trails that Raleigh offers.
