Overview

Alexander Cogbill is a member of Goldberg, Miller & Rubin’s New York office and is involved in all aspects of New York’s varied caseload, from discovery and depositions, to dispositive motions and appeals in automotive negligence cases.

Alexander  brings non-traditional perspectives to his practice with degrees in biochemistry and economics, and experience living abroad in France and Senegal where he worked in international development and taught in multiple languages. This foundation infuses his practice resulting in better communication and understanding of otherwise complex legal problems.  Alexander’s ability was recognized by the Thomson Reuters search committee when he was selected as a 2018 Rising Star, which is a designation provided to only 2.5% of lawyers who are under forty or who have practiced for less than ten years.

In law school, Alexander was a traveling member of the Moot Court Board and Mock Trial Society. He also held multiple senior roles in the Student Bar Association and Connecticut Journal of International Law. While in law school, Alexander worked in the legal department of a Fortune 100 Company, a startup environmental company, a prestigious appellate firm, a small litigation practice, and for a Connecticut Superior Court Judge, Jane S. Scholl.

In college, Alexander was an athlete, playing soccer and football. When he is not working, he enjoys staying active, including playing soccer, bicycling, and running marathons.
