Alexander S. Rynerson joined Lanzone Morgan’s team of attorneys in 2019, bringing his extensive legal experience and diverse career background with him. He is licensed to practice in all California state courts and the Southern, Central, and Eastern Districts of California.
Prior to becoming an attorney, Alexander explored a variety of careers, including rescue SCUBA diving and instruction, construction, teaching choir, and community outreach services through the Los Angeles Opera. Through these experiences, Alexander realized that his true passion lay in helping others navigate through the most difficult moments in their lives.
During his time as a rescue diver, Alexander found a new approach to living. He recalls the first time he saved someone’s life; the sheer gratitude and relief on their face was the most rewarding experience of his life at the time. At that moment, he stopped living merely for himself and started living to do for others. However, he knew that he needed to make an impact in a broader way. Reminiscing to those moments when his parents played the OJ Simpson trials on the television and his days playing “mock courtroom” with his stuffed chicken, Marcia “Cluck,” Alexander realized that the best avenue for him to effect change lay in the legal profession.
Alexander received his Juris Doctor from Chapman University Fowler School of Law, where he was a member of the Public Interest Law Foundation and a member of the Moot Court, Mock Trial, and the Alternative Dispute Resolution teams. During law school, Alexander worked at Bet Tzedek (specializing in fighting for the rights of the terminally disabled), the Alona Cortese Elder Law Center at Chapman University, and the Office of the Los Angeles County District Attorney. There, he was assigned to the Victim Impact Program which specializes in assisting those victims most susceptible to predation – children, domestic partners, the developmentally disabled, and the elderly – which allowed him to make over 50 court appearances as a law student, including a number of trials. Further, he was blessed with the opportunity to practice in the field of Government Entity Liability in numerous Federal and State matters, including a number of successful trials. After law school, he served as a Deputy District Attorney for San Bernardino before coming to Lanzone Morgan to pursue his passion for helping others.
Since coming to Lanzone Morgan, Alexander has been instrumental in obtaining justice for our clients, from the moment of client intake to trial, and beyond in the Court of Appeal. In particular, Alexander brings a commitment to and belief in the causes of our clients to every single one of his cases, in particular those that no other law firm would take on. Having experienced the loss of his grandmother from elder neglect, Alexander is able to bring a highly personal perspective to his cases, and he strives to make himself available to all of his clients throughout the entire litigation process. Previous clients have remarked that his hands-on approach, aggressive litigation style, and personal touch have brought them not only excellent results, but the feeling that they were taken care of as a family member would be. Though still a young attorney, Alexander’s efforts have resulted in excellent outcomes for our clients, but more importantly, the feeling of vindication for the egregious wrongs suffered by our clients and their families.
For Alexander, it is a blessing and a privilege to be counted as a member of this dynamic team, as each person brings the compassion and drive needed to fight for the causes of our clients. Alexander is also extremely grateful for the opportunity to work alongside his wife, Sara Rynerson, whom he met in law school, passed the California State Bar together with on their first try, and with whom he shares an everlasting commitment to make our world a better place.
