Alexander Begum is a founding shareholder of the Begum Law Group LLC, with offices in San Antonio, Brownsville and McAllen. Mr. Begum completed his undergraduate studies at Trinity University in San Antonio earning a double major in Marketing and Finance. Thereafter, he attended Harvard University in Boston where he studied finance and legal writing. Following the completion of his undergraduate studies, Alex acquired a Doctorate of Jurisprudence and a Masters of Business Administration with a concentration in Finance from Texas Tech University.

After graduating law school, Alex did not cease in his quest for learning and improving his skills. In 2010 Mr. Begum was chosen to be among the elite few that are accepted into the Trial Lawyers College. This intense program is intended to push each individual student toward a greater understanding of themselves and others. Every attorney that graduates from the Trial Lawyers College walks away knowing they have improved not only their skills as attorneys but have improved their "personhood" as well. Attending such a program is not an easy task. Alexander Begum made the choice to be away from his home, family and law practice to devote the time to attend and graduate from the Trial Lawyers College. He willingly made this sacrifice for a singular purpose. He wanted to be better able to help his clients and serve his community.

Since graduating law school, Alex has tried over 50 trials to verdict. He has handled thousands of personal injury cases and has tried or settled over ONE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS ($100,000,000.00) in cases. Alex has been named as one of the best personal injury lawyers in San Antonio for years 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 by SA Scene magazine in a poll voted on only by lawyers. He was also named as a TOP TEN personal injury lawyer under 40 in the nation by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys for 2014 and 2015. Alex was also voted TOP 10 personal Injury attorneys in South Texas by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys for 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Alexander Begum's career in law was born of a true desire to help others. This desire has not abated. The art of giving is something Alex practices so routinely that it has become an integral part of his professional and personal life. Mr. Begum gives freely of his time and expertise to offer pro bono legal services to those that need them. His special interest in pro bono cases has been put to excellent use. His willingness to serve others, along with his expertise and experience, saved an entire Texas community when they were faced with the probable loss of their homes, through no fault of their own. In addition to providing pro bono legal services, Alex Begum serves as a board member for several charitable organizations

Mr. Begum was born and raised in Texas and practices law in the community that nurtured his early years. Alex played tennis throughout college and continues to enjoy tennis in his free time. Mr. Begum resides in Texas and is very involved with his family and friends.
