By: The Daily Record
An attorney with the Baltimore law firm of Offit Kurman since 2004 and a partner since 2009, Alex Allman considers himself an unofficial ambassador of the practice of law.
In 2016, he started a mentorship program at Offit Kurman, in which he teaches and counsels young lawyers on the challenges of the profession
The same year, he lectured a psychology class at Villa Julie College on the stress clients experience in divorce and custody cases, and he still mentors students from that class who are considering a legal career.
“I love being a lawyer, and I evangelize about it,” Allman said. “I love passing on my experience and knowledge. My law degree has given me experiences that I never dreamed of, and I owe it to young lawyers to get them excited about this career, too.”
Allman has been on the board of trustees of the Harford County Public Library since 2011, and chairman since 2014. During those years, he said, he has helped organize, set up and attend the library’s annual gala, its biggest fundraiser, and attended numerous library events and openings, where he often speaks. As chairman, he helps steer the library’s future.
