Maryland Personal Injury Lawyers

A Word From Gary Alexander – Founder of the Firm

To all of my many clients and friends over the past 50 years… it is hard to believe the years have flown by since a very young Jim Cleaver became my law clerk in a new firm I was starting. He became my partner in 1982 – and “Alexander & Cleaver” began its journey. Soon thereafter, Todd Pounds joined us, and our young law clerk, Jason Deloach, became a lawyer in the firm. As the years have gone by, Jim, Todd, and Jason were the legal foundation of the firm, and we provided thousands of people with legal work and advice … and they are still at it! They are premier attorneys in the areas of personal injury, municipal law, civil litigation, and administrative law. Our firm has represented thousands of clients in personal injury cases over the years. I am proud to say I trained each of them to be aggressive and thorough in each case.

It is also hard to believe I have a “milestone” birthday coming up in November. Where have the years gone? Anita and I spend most of our time now in Florida and take special pride in each of our five grandkids. I am still a member of the Maryland, Florida, and Associate Member of Virginia Bar Associations. I have been proud to be a lawyer for over 50 years and will probably never give up my Bar memberships. In my years practicing, I feel I served my clients well. I was happy to help residents of Prince George’s County and elsewhere recover large verdicts and settlements as their Maryland personal injury lawyer, as well as businesses navigate complex legal and administrative matters. It has truly been a wonderful experience.

Some years ago, I took a step back from the management of Alexander & Cleaver, but always have enjoyed my clients and friends asking for legal advice or just connecting. I have also continued to talk regularly with Jim, Todd, and Jason giving them my opinion on cases or legal issues if they needed a fresh look at something.

So, I hope to hear from clients and friends – you can reach me at my usual email address. You can also visit my personal website for some laughs at

Even though I am not actively engaged in the practice of law, I am happy to hear from my old clients and friends.

Good health and best wishes to all.
