Alex was first admitted to practice as a lawyer in New South Wales in 1998.

He was enrolled as a Solicitor in the Supreme Court of Queensland in 1999 and was called to the Bar in Queensland in March 2010.

Alex’s first role as a lawyer was in the Australian Army as a Legal Officer. After resigning his commission as a full time Army Lawyer, he continued as an Army Reserve Legal Officer for several years while he worked at Roberts Liu & North, a Townsville firm of solicitors (now Roberts Nehmer McKee) where he undertook work in the general commercial and property law fields followed by Suthers Taylor Lawyers in Townsville where he undertook work in commercial litigation.

Alex then went on to establish his own firm in Townsville where he undertook, and supervised several employed solicitors in family law, criminal law and commercial law for 8 years before being called to the bar in Brisbane in March 2010.

Since that time Alex has focused much on his work in criminal law and in Defamation where jury trials are still conducted, maintaining and honing his advocacy skills and his knowledge of the law of evidence.

As well as being a Brisbane Defamation Barrister, Alex Nelson is also a Nationally Accredited Mediator.
