My first real exposure to the principles of professionalism and accountability was during my time as an enlisted servicemember of the United States Air Force. After graduating first in my class from the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, California, I was trained and worked as a cryptologic linguist focused on the Korean Peninsula.

 

After an honorable discharge, I returned to my home in northeast Florida and earned a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of North Florida.  I then attended Florida Coastal School of Law, where I earned numerous awards for written and oral advocacy in local and national competitions designed to simulate courtroom conditions at the trial and appellate levels. I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2015, was a first-time Florida Bar Exam passer and earned a role as an associate with one of Jacksonville’s longest-running and most respected law firms, Marks Gray, P.A. While there, I honed my advocacy skills in practice areas such as civil defense, premises liability, residential and commercial foreclosures, contractual disputes, municipal liability, First Amendment concerns, and wrongful death actions, to name a few.

 

I understand the pressures that a legal battle can place on your life.  I know that most people would prefer never to have to make the long walk up those courthouse steps.  But when you must, the single most important consideration to have on your side is a learned professional who sees you as a friend rather than just another client, who sees your problem as the thing that is keeping you from making the most of your time rather than just another case to win or lose, who knows you as a person rather than just another paycheck. 

 

I strive to move every client's case along to an amicable solution as soon as is reasonably possible.  I employ strategies and invoke the rules of procedure to ensure the fastest and most economical outcome for every person who puts their faith in me.  Though I cannot promise that every client will obtain everything he or she wanted in the litigation, it is my utmost goal to see that each of my people knows that their outcome is fair and that they didn't have to leave anything on the table.

Alexander J. Gilewicz

Attorney

 

While serving eight years in the United States Marine Corps, I became instilled with the core values of honor, courage, and commitment.  These values, taken together, mean always doing what is right even in the face of overwhelming adversity. While criminal charges can be daunting, you can rely on me to stand by your side and continue to fight for your constitutional rights.   

 

            Having represented thousands of clients across northeast Florida, I come into every case with a wealth of experience and knowledge.  My trial experience includes a wide range of offenses from misdemeanors through life felonies.  I take pride in fighting through difficult cases that other lawyers may turn away.  My candor and attention to detail will help guide you through an incredibly difficult time while my dedication to you and your case will ensure that your rights are protected.

 

            My experience extends beyond just the trial level.  I also guide clients through the appellate and post-conviction process.  I have filed numerous merit briefs with the State's District Court of Appeals as well as Post-Conviction motions fighting for clients rights to a new and fair trial.  Unlike some attorneys, I am not afraid to seek Oral Argument before the appellate courts and have argued before the Fifth District Court of Appeal.  My experience and attention to detail will ensure that any error made by the Prosecutor or the Court at the trial level is properly preserved and brought to the attention of the Appellate Courts.

 

            Sometimes those who have served time as the result of a criminal case find their civil rights have been stripped away from them.  Many believe that this can never be rectified.  I strongly believe that one poor decision should not leave you stranded as a second class citizen!  Let me guide you through the State of Florida's process for seeking restoration of your civil rights including the right to own firearms and vote.
