Falconi v. Secretary of State

Alex is married and a father of one son. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and Engineering and works as an Applications Developer IV for Everi, Inc., in Las Vegas, Nevada. Alex’s high conflict child custody struggle began when he was 23. While attending the University of Nevada, Reno, Alex was excluded from his son’s life and had to institute child custody proceedings in the Second Judicial District Court (Washoe County). Along this wild and crazy legal journey, Alex won appeals to the Supreme Court of Nevada not once, not twice, not three times, but four times! Justice Michael Cherry of the Supreme Court of Nevada also authored an opinion on an original petition for writ of mandamus Alex filed, causing an expansion of Nevada case law regarding the Secretary of State’s Confidential Address Program for victims of domestic violence. Falconi v. Secretary of State, 299 P. 3d 378 (2013). He is now the Administrator of Our Nevada Judges, which seeks to duplicate its model across the United States. What follows is his interview by John Stiles.
