Alex Estroff attended the University of Georgia as an undergrade, and Georgia State University College of Law, where he received his law degree.
As a law clerk for a federal judge, he assists with legal writing and research for the cases in Northern District of Georgia court. This means helping the judge for whom he works prepare for trials and hearings and helping draft the many written orders the judge issues in their cases.
The cases he deals with can involve important constitutional questions and novel issues arising under federal law. He finds the work endlessly fascinating and deeply rewarding. “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the public in this way,” said Estroff.
He previously worked at the law firm Alston & Bird, and before law school, and had the privilege of being a legislative intern for the late Congressman John Lewis.
He is involved with AJC ACCESS, the Southern Center for Human Rights, and in law school, volunteered with various legal aid organizations across Georgia.
Estroff told the AJT that he is an ardent Atlanta sports fan (even during the rough years) and enjoys checking out Atlanta’s vibrant food, drink, and music scenes.
“I’m extremely grateful to be recognized in this year’s 40 under 40. I’m also grateful for the close-knit Atlanta Jewish community I grew up in, and I hope to be able to give back as much as I can as I progress through my career,” said Estroff.
