Attorney at Law/Notary Public
Alex K. Kriksciun has devoted most of his legal career to defending the rights of people accused of crimes and the rights of people harmed by the negligence of others. Whether the case involves a municipal citation, a life imprisonment without parole case, a wrongful death suit, or a minor fender-bender, Alex has always stepped up to help guide his clients through their legal matter with resolute representation.
Although his primary goal is to achieve the best possible result for each client, Alex never loses sight of the human aspect of each case. He recognizes first and foremost that clients are real people with challenging legal problems. Alex believes strongly that his professional responsibility goes beyond obtaining favorable results for clients; he is also charged with the duty of relieving his clients' stressful daily burdens throughout the duration of their case.
Alex was born and raised in Northern Virginia. After graduating from the University of Virginia in 2003, he spent two years working as a business analyst for a government consulting firm. He moved to New Orleans to attend Tulane University Law School exactly nine days before Hurricane Katrina made landfall. He decided to return to New Orleans in December of 2005, and has lived here since.
While at Tulane as a member of the law school's “Katrina Class,” Alex won the Edwin I. Mahoney Award for the outstanding examination in criminal law as chosen from all the members of his class. He also served as vice president of the legal honor society Phi Delta Phi, made the finals of the intraschool moot court trial competition, served as a moot court board justice, and was the Senior Research Editor of the Tulane Journal of International and Comparative Law. He graduated from Tulane Law, cum laude, in May of 2008.
Immediately following graduation, Alex was honored to serve as a law clerk for the Hon. Fredericka Homberg Wicker of the Louisiana Fifth Circuit Court of Appeal. After his clerkship, Alex worked as an associate attorney for a small firm, where he honed his criminal defense and personal injury skills. He fulfilled a lifelong dream by opening the Law Office of Alex Kriksciun in November of 2016. Through his office, Alex remains connected and committed to fighting for the rights of the Greater New Orleans community. He focuses his practice on defending felony, misdemeanor, and municipal charges, car accident cases, other serious personal injury/wrongful death cases, and defending traffic citations.
