Mandelbaum Barrett Appoints Real Estate Practice Group Co-Chair

Mandelbaum Barrett P.C. has announced that Craig W. Alexander, Esq. has been named co-chair of the firm’s Real Estate practice group. He will work closely with Real Estate co-chair Barry R. Mandelbaum, who is also chairman of the full-service law firm.

Since joining the firm in 1995, Alexander has concentrated his practice in real estate and commercial lending. He represents developers, builders, investors, commercial property owners, contractors and lenders in all phases affecting real estate deals. He also appears before planning and zoning boards in connection with land development and property improvements.

“This appointment recognizes Alexander’s work ethic, commitment to the firm and years of service to his clients. He possesses the leadership and legal talent to ensure continued growth in our department and our firm. I’m looking forward to working with him to continue to expand the practice,” said Mandelbaum.

As Barry Mandelbaum’s stepson, Alexander represents the third generation at the firm, mirroring many of the multi-generational, longstanding client relationships at Mandelbaum Barrett since its founding over 90 years ago by Irving Mandelbaum, Barry’s father.

“We are seeing the next generation of clients coming through our doors, and it’s really wonderful to now work with the grandchildren of some of my grandfather’s original clients,” said Alexander. “These long-term relationships with clients and their families are the cornerstone of the firm’s success.”

Committed to public service, Alexander has served as the president of the Mental Health Association of Essex and Morris, Inc. since 2016 and is a long-standing member of its board of directors. He earned his juris doctorate from Yeshiva University, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and his bachelor’s degree from Cornell University, School of industrial and Labor Relations. He joined Mandelbaum Barrett in 1995.
