Alejandro J. Salicrup
Attorney Alejandro Salicrup has spent his career advocating for people in need. Graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from the University of Chicago, with honors, and then continuing on to his master’s in Latin American Studies at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, Alejandro worked to help victims of human trafficking in Mexico, Guatemala, and other countries in Latin America. Immediately drawn to helping others fight for justice, Alejandro went on to study law at the University of Pennsylvania School of Law. While in law school, he was the editor-in-chief of the East Asia Law Review and a senior editor for the Journal of International Law.
Before starting at the firm, Alejandro worked as a federal law clerk for judges in the United States District Court for the District of Puerto Rico and the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. After completing his clerkships, Alejandro served as a federal prosecutor for the U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Florida. In his role as a federal prosecutor, Alejandro prosecuted numerous child exploitation and child pornography cases. As a federal prosecutor, Alejandro received multiple awards from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, and other agencies for prosecuting violent crime and white-collar crime. Alejandro also tried the first cancer genetic testing fraud case in the Department of Justice, and he prosecuted one of the first Covid-19 fraud cases in the country.
Alejandro is proud to have worked to bring criminal offenders to justice and is committed to continue his career helping others. Today, Alejandro concentrates his practice on mass torts and personal injury litigation at Williams Hart & Boundas, where his invaluable experience continues to be a valuable resource to our clients.
Alejandro, a native of Puerto Rico, is fluent in Spanish and proficient in Portuguese. Alejandro lives in Houston with his wife and their two children.
As a prosecutor, I have seen how hard it can be for victims to come forward and to share their story. I know it’s hard to tell an attorney what happened, but I want people to know that they are respected and that they are being taken seriously. Trust is the cornerstone of my relationship with our clients.
