Karen Alexander

Karen A. Alexander is a graduate of Baylor University, School of Law. Mrs. Alexander is the owner of Alexander & Associates and handles criminal cases. Since opening her own law office, Ms. Alexander has successfully negotiated and tried criminal cases in both County Courts and District Courts throughout Denton, Dallas and Tarrant Counties. A prosecutor has described Ms. Alexander as “a damn good lawyer” and a Judge commented that Ms. Alexander demonstrated superior trial skills and even went so far as to discuss the quality of Ms. Alexander’s closing argument with other defense lawyers in chambers.

Prior to opening her own firm, Mrs. Alexander worked for the Denton County District Attorney’s Office as a criminal prosecutor. Mrs. Alexander has conducted fifty or more court hearings as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney, more than fifty jury trials. The court room is where Mrs. Alexander feels at home. When negotiations fall through or a prosecutor just doesn’t want to see their case for what it is, Mrs. Alexander is ready to play ball inside of the courtroom. Alexander & Associates is a trial lawyers firm.

Since leaving the DA’s office in 2003, Mrs. Alexander has expanded her firm and has hired multiple associate attorneys to work along side of her. She has been the President of the Denton County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, including starting a public information website at www.dccdla.org. Additionally, Karen has been a director on the board of lawyers for the Denton County Bar Associations and a member of the College of the State Bar. Karen has been active in the defense community, attending both local and State wide continuing education programs, including but not limited to: the 26th and 27th Annual Prairie Dog Conference, DWI Boot Camp, Domestic Violence Seminar, Advanced DWI Cross-Examination, 3rd Annual Juvenile Review Course, Intoxication Manslaughter School, Objection Sustained Competition (where I placed second) and Prosecutors Trial Skills Course. Mrs. Alexander remains up to date on all activity with the appeal court regarding criminal matter because it may effect your case.
