Alexander Howell finds every aspect of the lifecycle of business fascinating. Holding an LL.M in taxation, he is especially intrigued by the opportunity to solve tax problems, finding the best solutions and strategies for saving his clients hard earned revenue. From the start-up to the selling of a business, Alexander helps his clients navigate the legal and tax world with the least amount of stress and risk to achieve their goals and objectives.
Born and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Alexander and his family moved to Ohio when he was 14. There he started a new life where he focused on his education, met his best friend, became a nationally ranked track star and began his journey to becoming an attorney. His career choice was actually inspired in high school by a local attorney that was a guest speaker at his school, introducing Alexander to the idea that being an attorney is really all about helping people and working with them to solve problems. From that day, he knew what he wanted to do and he charted a path to his own success, using this quote by Solomon Short as inspiration, “Half of being smart is knowing what you are dumb about.”
In addition to his corporate law focus, Alexander brings experience in the area of business litigation, allowing him to proactively put this knowledge to work for his clients. He also has an insider’s perspective into the court system, with experience as a judicial intern for the Honorable James V. Pierce of the sixth Judicial Circuit of Florida.
He holds an advanced law degree, LL.M. in Taxation, from the University of Florida Levin College of Law and his J.D. from Stetson University College of Law, where he served as a member of Stetson’s Law Review, a research assistant to Professor Carliss Chatman, was a 2015 LCLD scholar, and a two time recipient of the Hon. Frank H. White Scholarship. His undergraduate degree is in finance from Warner University in Lake Wales, Florida.
Alexander enjoys spending time with his wife and son. He is passionate about community service, especially in the area of combatting hunger, volunteering with food banks and shelters to feed those in need.
