From his two offices in Ticonderoga and Saratoga Springs, attorney Alex Shmulsky has been helping people navigate through the legal system for almost a decade. He is continuing to help countless clients while growing professionally.
Originally from Sheffield, Mass., Shmulsky began his career working in the Massachusetts State Supreme Court, he then gained experience working in security for the Boston Red Sox, along with various law firms in Boston, including his own. He attended Albany Law School for his Juris Doctor and received his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Northeastern University in Boston.
Shmulsky said he feels like Saratoga is a combination of what he considers to be a perfect location.
“Saratoga Springs is very centrally located. It is a great hub to service my clients who come from Upstate New York ranging from Albany to Plattsburgh. Saratoga Springs is also growing and developing. It is an exciting place to be,” said Shmulsky.
The majority of the cases Shmulsky takes are divorce and family law, criminal defense and real estate. He is a general practice lawyer with experience in county and town courts and cases including drunk driving, violent crimes, drug cases, domestic cases and traffic tickets.
Shmulsky also works with many small business owners and provide legal services that small businesses need.
“Over my 10 years as an attorney I have helped countless clients in those areas,” said Shmulsky.
Shmulsky said what may set him apart is his dedication to making sure his clients know how important they are to him.
“It is important for people to know that I make my clients a priority. My clients can always reach me and I make myself available to them. My clients situation’s are very serious to them and I take them just as serious. I am available via text, email, phone and social media,” said Shmulsky.
Shmulsky credits his dedication to his clients to experiences he endured during his childhood. He knew he wanted to be a lawyer at the age of 14 as a result of his older brother finding himself in some legal trouble.
“I wanted to help him get out of trouble. People have perceptions of lawyers, but the majority of them spend countless hours trying to help people. That is why I was drawn to being a lawyer. I enjoy helping people,” said Shmulsky.
His Saratoga office is at 18 Division St., Suite 302. His phone is 585-4400 and his website is www.shmulskylaw.com.
