"How many lawyers does it take to change a light bulb? Fifty four. Eight to argue, one to get a continuance, one to object, one to demur, two to research precedents, one to dictate a letter, one to stipulate, five to turn in their time sheets, two to depose, one to write interrogatories, two to settle, one to order a secretary to change the bulb, and twenty-eight to bill for professional services."'

Professional Life Edit
After graduating Alex joined the Chicago City Council as a Criminal Psychologist, working out of the District Attorney's Office. Often brought in as a special liaison to the CBI when suspects refused to help in police interviews, Alex re-united with Carrie on several tough cases. His insight into human behaviour and psychology often exposed a weakness that the police couldnt see. A highpoint in his career was when he broke a muslim fanatic in time to stop a bomb plot, potentially saving many lives in the process.
Having been frustrated at several cases he worked on failing to secure a conviction, this prompted Alex to take a more active approach. He next studied for and passed the Illinois Bar Exam and is now a Deputy District Attorney with the City of Chicago. Though his academic knowledge of the law is capable, his true strength as a prosecutor lies in the power of his cross examination, being able to manipulate witnesses by once again spotting flaws and inconsistencies others may have missed.
With the District Attorney Role keeping him mostly confined to the courtroom, Alex no longer works directly for the police. However he recommended to work as the new psychologist consultant to the CBI, filling the role he once did on a full time basis. He also still meets Carrie for lunch once a week, a routine established all the way back in college, often providing insight and guidence into especially tough cases.
