After being born in the New York metropolitan area, Alex Wallach grew up outside of Washington, DC where he was greatly influenced by the coverage of the Watergate scandal in the Washington Post. His interest in politics and law began at that time. He graduated cum laude with a BA in Political Science from  Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio in 1984. He is a 1987 graduate of the Emory University School of Law.

Alex has practiced the entirety of his career with the firm now known as GEORGE & WALLACH, LLP and has concentrated his practice on representing applicants in Workers' Compensation and Social Security cases. He was named a Super Lawyer for 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.  He is a former  Chairperson of the WCCL  (the Worker's  Compensation Claimant's  Lawyers  Section of the Georgia  Trial  Lawyers  Association),  the  long time  Chair  of  their  Amicus  Curiae  Committee  and  the immediate past President of the Georgia Legal Foundation.
