For 20 years, Richard A. Alexander has practiced law in the Tampa Bay area. In 1993, he graduated from the University of South Florida, majored in History with an emphasis in Military History and a minor in Psychology. Subsequently, he was accepted to the Mercer School of Law and received his law degree in 1996. 

In 1997, as an Assistant State Attorney; he honed his skills as a trial lawyer. His office ran the gamut of daily deadlines under stressful, complicated and pressure-filled situations. During his tenure, he prosecuted approximately 90 trials, not including hundreds of misdemeanor and felony motions and evidentiary hearings. He have prepared the testimony of thousands of witnesses, victims, and law enforcement officers. 

In 2001, he accepted a position as an associate with the law firm of Frazer, Hubbard, Brandt and Trask, where he continued to sharpen his skills as a trial lawyer. Moreover, he was allowed to grow and excel as a professional, which provided a fountain of knowledge in the civil arena and municipality law. In any given week, he communicated on a variety of issues with no less than four municipalities, specifically, Dunedin, Tarpon Springs, Oldsmar, and Belleair Bluffs. As a direct result, Richard Alexander communicated with numerous departments and officials, to include, mayors, the Board of City Commissioners, and local law enforcement. 

In 2004, Richard Alexander established his own office concentrating in both civil and criminal law. He has been involved in litigation since leaving the State Attorney's Office, and has conducted scores of mediation sessions, evidentiary hearings, participated in hundreds of motions involving novel and complicated matters, drafted contracts disputes, partitions, foreclosures, landlord/tenant matters, and served as a consultant on hundreds of personal injury cases. Currently, his practice is partnered with a major Bay area personal injury firm. 

As a prosecutor and defense attorney, he has attended and completed numerous seminars in the field of DUI law, to include, the maintenance of the breath alcohol machine, Driving Patterns, Police/Citizen Contact, Field Sobriety Exercises, Florida Implied Consent Law, and Breath Alcohol Reading.

He has been very fortunate to articles published in the City of Weston magazine detailing topics on the Family Medical Leave Act and Construction Liens. I have been the featured speaker at the Preferred Provider's Conference sponsored by Bay Care Life Management, where I lectured on DUI law and the Family Medical Leave Act. Moreover, I was the featured speaker at two DUI seminars in Tampa and Palm Beach. 

Since 2001, he has been a professor with the University of Phoenix, for the School of Business, to include; Law, Political Science, Humanities, History and Criminal Justice. In 2014, he was awarded the University of Phoenix Faculty of the Year. Recently, he accepted a position as an adjunct professor at Everglades University teaching Construction Law, Contracts, and Ethics.
