Alex is a startup-tech nerd trapped in an attorney’s body. He serves as managing partner for Promise Legal, Vice President of EFF-Austin, Legal Education Program Coordinator for SXSW, a leadership member of the Computer & Technology Section of the Texas State Bar, a leadership member for Young Technology Professionals at the Institute for Law and Technology, and the Founder of the Journal of Law and Technology at Texas.

Mr. Shahrestani’s ardor for technology has left an indelible influence on the legal profession.
