Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

Alonzo McAlpine Alston, Esq. was born in Savannah, GA, is a loving and proud father, dedicated husband, and client-focused and service oriented attorney. Attorney Alston was born to entrepreneurial parents who were heavily involved in the civil rights movement, and is a product of their strong influential guidance to purpose his life and endeavors on social equality, cause-driven activism, and self-reliance with a focus on empowerment through community building. These values have also influenced his desire to espouse integrity, maintain ownership of his work-product, and develop clear communications.

Attorney Alston said, "[O]ne of the primary reasons I became and attorney was to make sure that people knew what I didn't know when I started out in business. I want people to know the value of strong agreements, and to be able to speak to an attorney that had been on the wrong end of a bad deal. Someone's got to fight for the entrepreneurs and small business owners."

Entrepreneurship has been a driving force in his life, and began at an early age. Since his first lemonade stand and video game exchange, Attorney Alston has sought to maximize value for his clients. In 2001, Attorney Alston founded Movement Productions (now, Movement Productions, LLC) to provide quality event oriented entertainment and information services and resources. Similarly, Attorney Alston has established McAlpine PLLC to provide client focused and dedicated customer service yielding high-quality legal results in a variety of legal practice areas.

Attorney Alston is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a B.A. in Communications Studies and minor in African-American Studies, and a graduate of the inaugural class of Charlotte School of Law. Attorney Alston is licensed to practice law in the state of North Carolina.
