About Alex Spinks

Born in Flemington New Jersey, Alex grew up in the mountains of Colorado before moving to Tempe, Arizona for College. He then moved to Portland, Oregon in 2010 and attended Lewis and Clark Law School.

Following Law School, he worked as an attorney at Umpqua Valley Public Defender in Roseburg, Oregon for two years. There he represented clients in court on matters ranging from probation violations to Measure 11 felonies.
