Alexander Jacob Wainberg - Partner

He’s been there.  College at a small private Midwestern university.  Alexander has experience dealing with students’ First Amendment rights, untrustworthy landlords, and youthful indiscretions. 


While in college, Alexander founded clubs, work on campus-based media (radio, TV, and print publications), and tutored other students.  During law school, Alex cultivated his desire to use the law to represent traditionally underserved individuals; both at the New Orleans Legal Assistance Corporation, helping indigent clients dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and the Consumer Protection Unit of the Wisconsin Department of Justice, prosecuting companies who preyed on the elderly. 


Alexander’s demonstrated drive and compassion led to his co-founding Wainberg Morrison LLC in 2011.  According to Alexander, “Wainberg Morrison is there to protect and advocate for students and community members who might not otherwise be heard.  We will do so with tenacity and focus, but also with integrity and ethics.”


Through his experiences as an attorney, Alexander has learned, “The two most important jobs for any lawyer are to provide a platform for his or her client to be heard, and to work creatively and diligently to find the best solutions to a client’s problems.  At Wainberg Morrison, the first question we ask is ‘How can we help you?’”


Alexander has previous legal work experience at a small law firm in civil litigation, real estate, and estate planning.  Outside of the office, Alex’s interests include baseball, college sports, street art, and playing the harmonica.  Alexander is a member of both the St. Paul Curling Club and the Frogtown Curling Club.
