Attorney Alex Mario, daughter of firm founder and president,
Carter Mario, was inspired from an early age to continue her family’s legacy
of fighting for the injured. Alex has stood alongside her father and the
Carter Mario Law Firm from the age of fifteen, in the firm’s commercials,
billboards, buses, and social media platforms and encouraged Connecticut’s
injured to “Get Carter!”
Born and raised in Connecticut, Alex’s competitive drive and fighting
spirit led her to attend high school at the prestigious
International Management Group (IMG) Sports Academy, in Bradenton, Fl. in their soccer program. From there it was a natural
choice to follow her parents’ footsteps and attend college at the
University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Alex double majored in Journalism and Mass Communication & Spanish
Literature and Language. During college, Alex spent a year abroad in Seville,
Spain, where she lived with a Spanish family and was completely immersed
in the local culture.
Upon graduation from college, Alex worked for four years at Time Warner
Cable Corporate in NYC in various roles from executive assistant to the
President of Residential Operations, a Marketing Analyst, as well as Analyst
of Operational Effectiveness. During this time, she was elected to be
a member of Time Warner Cable’s Aspiring Leadership Organization.
Working with people and solving disputes on a corporate level made Alex
realize her desire to return to the family law business and help those
that needed a fighter in their corner. She obtained her JD from
Fordham University School of Law, where she earned a spot on their Trial Advocacy team, one of the top
programs in the country. While earning her JD, Alex also received the
Archibald R. Murray Public Service Award - an award given for providing
over 100 hours of pro bono and community work for Fordham Law's Mediation
Clinic at the small claims court in Manhattan.
When Alex isn’t fiercely advocating for her clients, she is busy
with her family, especially keeping up with her young son Kees and soon-to-be
new baby, arriving in the late fall. Once an avid movie buff, she now
has become a connoisseur of children's television shows, and knows most
of Coco Melon by heart! She still makes time to enjoy a good travel or
cooking show on the weekends, listen to some jazz or Andrea Bocelli and
when able, enjoys skiing and watching soccer. Her dogs, Bubba & Frankie,
are her lounging partners and add to the overall excitement.
As your dedicated advocate, Alex will handcraft a plan of attack that is
specific to your case. Born into a family of fighters and high achievers,
Alex is ready to stand in your corner and help you get your life back.
