Ed Alexander is a very rare attorney who is equally a talented lawyer, successful entrepreneur, skilled engineer and effective teacher. In addition to building a successful law practice following a successful career in industry, Ed has been an adjunct instructor in the UCF College of Business Administration for many years and taught classes for the UCF Incubation Program. Ed is at the top of our referral list for Incubator clients. We trust him. Our clients respect and appreciate him.

Business owners beware. You’re making mistakes that are taking money out of your pocket… problem is our brains don’t work in a way that allows us to uncover these mistakes. Enter Ed. He can see the mistakes we can’t see. He’s unlike a normal attorney… he’s a deal maker not a deal killer and in this book, Ed pulls back the curtain and makes law something we can actually understand and reveals things that could be costing you thousands. It’s a must read if you want to make more money and keep more of the money you already make.
