Local Hero Alexander Frix Congratulations to Olympia attorney Alexander Frix, who recently received the WSBA’s Local Hero Award! WSBA President Patrick Palace presented the award at a luncheon on Jan. 23; fellow Olympia attorney Rebecca Glasgow was also honored with a Local Hero Award at the same event.

Frix was honored for his work in creating the Thurston County Veterans Court, the first veterans court in the Pacific Northwest. Frix worked with local stakeholders, including judges, prosecutors, law enforcement and correctional officers, social workers, and governmental agencies to help form the veterans court in 2009; he now serves as its principal defense counsel. Frix is also the training coordinator for the Thurston County Office of Assigned Counsel, where he has been a public defender since 2007.

“Alex’s thirst for justice and his zealous dedication to his clients makes him stand out in our community,” said Leonard Lucenko Jr., Thurston County Bar Association president-elect. “Alex is an amazing attorney and an even better person, and he deserves recognition for his tireless efforts for our community.”

For his work with the veterans court, Frix has also received awards from the Washington Department of Veterans Affairs, the Governor’s Veterans Advisory Committee, and the Washington Defender Association. Frix was nominated by the Thurston County Bar Association.
