Alec was first introduced to veterans law when he participate in the UDM Mercy School of Law veterans clinic (Project Salute). It was there that he was shocked to learn that far too many U.S. veterans do not receive the representation and benefits that they earned. After graduating Law School and becoming a member of the Maryland Bar, for several years Alec worked for a private firm that exclusively represented veterans and their families.
In April 2017, Alec joined the Vietnam Veterans of America Veterans Benefits Program. As an accredited representative of a Veterans Service Organization, Alec had unparalleled access to VA internal systems which greatly enhanced his ability to serve VA claimants.
In October 2017, Alec had the honor of leading VVA’s office located at the Board of Veterans’ Appeals and transitioned to the role of Training Advising Attorney in March 2019. In this capacity, Alec helps VVA’s advocates acquire the tools they need to best serve our nation’s veterans.
