A&C Founding Partners, Gary Alexander and Jim Cleaver, are life-long, diehard Caps fans, and have had season tickets in the same seats since the Capitals Hockey Team started 43 years ago. Gary’s son, Cory, was a very good goalie in high school and college. Jim took up playing hockey in his 40’s and almost learned to skate backwards. The firm has provided legal services over the years to many of the Caps players and their families. All the years of playoff frustration ARE OVER — THIS YEAR THE CAPS WON THE STANLEY CUP!
