Born in Nebraska, William “Alex” Marsh attended high school at The Fountain Valley School in Colorado Springs. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Biology with a focus in population genetics in 2005 from Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, NY, while also studying Ornithology through the University of Nebraska, Lincoln during the summers. Alex’s college path was non-traditional, often taking semesters off to pursue a career in the entertainment industry as a dance music D.J., allowing him adventures across the country as well as in Europe and Mexico.

After college, Alex moved back to Colorado, promptly taking a job at Arapahoe Basin Ski Area where, over the course of many seasons, he worked as a lifty, a ski tuner and El Jefe of the ski shop. To this day, he can unusually be found on the A-Basin steeps if he is not busy prepping for trial.

In 2008, having decided he had enough fun for a while, Alex packed up and moved to Boston where he enrolled at New England Law – Boston. During law school, Alex was an associate editor and wrote for the New England Journal of International and Comparative Law; interned at the Community Legal Services and Counseling Center in Cambridge, MA, helping indigent clients receive their Social Security, Medicaid and Disability benefits; served as secretary of the Environmental Law Society and participated in the International Law Society. Alex spent the summer of 2009 studying international law at Charles University in Prague and the National University of Ireland in Galway. He also worked as the handyman for a downtown law firm in Boston’s Old City Hall.

Initially intending to focus his studies on bio-med and healthcare law, it wasn’t until after serving a summer internship with Bauer and Burns in Breckenridge, CO that he realized his heart remained in the Rocky Mountains and his true dream was to advocate for the friends and community dearest to him. Upon earning his J.D. in May of 2011, Alex moved back to Frisco and passed the Colorado bar exam.

As the treasurer of the Continental Divide Bar Association Alex has his finger on the pulse of the local legal community. Alex feels most at home while arguing in front of a jury and that his strongest contributions to the legal community happen in the courtroom particularly while trying cases, including extensive DUI/DUI-D trial experience, buttressed by a strong scientific background and knowledge of addiction studies, as well as his strong foundations in family law, civil rights and general civil litigation. He is most passionate about advocating for the local youthful population and those whose rights are being ignored or discarded.

Alex now lives in Lake County, CO with his law school sweetheart Jenny, whom he met in a course being taught by the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, John Roberts. Chief Justice Roberts did not preside over the wedding ceremony. Alex and Jenny enjoy, skiing, hiking and backpacking with their son and their Greyhound “Ava” (short for Avalanche) all whilst debating the minutia of academic legal theory during their adventures.
