Alexandra L. Mussler is an Associate in Miller, Miller & Canby’s Litigation practice, focusing on Business and Commercial Litigation, Trust Litigation, Real Estate Litigation, Eminent Domain and Condemnation, Construction Litigation and Personal Injury and Insurance Litigation.
Alexandra (Alley) Mussler began her legal career as the Judicial Law Clerk for the Honorable James A. Bonifant, Associate Judge in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County. She then continued as his clerk following his selection as the Administrative Judge for the Sixth Judicial Circuit. She previously served as Judge Bonifant’s judicial intern while in law school.
Alley brings with her a unique breadth of experience from her time in the Circuit Court, where she drafted numerous judicial opinions and court orders, giving her a keen understanding of how to effectively communicate on behalf of clients. As a judge’s clerk, she developed an analytical approach to the law and a passion for litigation, working on complex civil law matters involving a broad spectrum of issues such as mechanic’s liens, shareholder disputes, derivative suits, fiduciary duties, and breaches of contract. Prior to her time at the Montgomery County Circuit Court, she worked as a legal intern, legal assistant and research assistant for multiple law firms in Maryland and in Florida.
Alley is admitted to practice in the state of Maryland. She obtained her undergraduate degree in economics with a minor in philosophy from Flagler College, and received her Juris Doctor degree from The American University, Washington College of Law, where she was awarded a Dean’s Merit Scholarship for all three years. She was a member of the Business Law Society and was a certified volunteer with the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program. As a student attorney in the school’s exclusive Federal Income Tax Clinic, she successfully represented clients before the U.S. Tax Court who were being audited by the Internal Revenue Service.
She is a proud native of Annapolis, Maryland.
Alley wanted to "win" for me personally, and it showed. This came to light over and over during my zoom meetings with her, one on one phone conversations, and our face-to-face meetings in the office. The amount of quality time she spent on my case was clear. She digs deep into the law itself. Her legal research was extremely thorough in identifying every possible way to support and strengthen my claim. Finally, Alley played a very competent role during the final step of my case, which was 6-7 hours of mediation. Her input was instrumental in giving us the best win possible.
