Alex Wilson joined Sullivan & Barros in 2015 as an associate, focusing primarily on Zoning and Land Use matters with Marty Sullivan. Her goal as an attorney is to help clients understand and achieve the full extent of their property rights. She works diligently with clients, including architects, developers, engineers, and homeowners, to prepare Board of Zoning Adjustment (“BZA”) applications, and is readily available to present to ANC and District agencies on behalf of clients. She has successfully argued a variety of cases for clients in front of the BZA, securing special exceptions and variances for projects of all sizes.

Alex is also an invaluable Inclusionary Zoning (“IZ”) specialist, working closely with clients on all aspects of the IZ process including the initial analysis and strategy, as well as coordinating with agencies to obtain approval. She has also drafted hundreds of zoning analysis and zoning determination letters that have provided clients with knowledge and new opportunities concerning their property rights. Alex is also experienced with preparing covenants, including wet-bar and lot-line covenants, and helps clients navigate Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (“DCRA”) issues.

Alex earned her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Virginia, and her J.D. from the American University College of Law. During law school, Alex was on the staff of the Administrative Law Review and participated in the “In My Backyard” community service program. She was also a proud member of the Latino Law Student’s Association and the Fashion Law Society.
