Alex Smith is a graduate of Lehigh University, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where he received a Bachelor of Arts in English and History. Thereafter, Alex attended Seton Hall School of Law in Newark, New Jersey. With that decision, Alex became the fourth member of his family to attend Seton Hall Law, including his father and Smith Eibeler founding partner Bob Smith.

During his time at Seton Hall, Alex was the Treasurer of the Employment Law Forum, a Senior Editor of the Seton Hall Law Review, and a member of the Center for Social Justice, Immigrants’ Rights/International Human Rights Clinic. During his time with the Center for Social Justice, Alex appeared in the U.S. Immigration Court in Newark in connection with a successful application for political asylum on behalf of a client of the Center for Social Justice.

Alex also gained valuable work experience during his law school career, holding internships with: the Honorable Paul A. Kapalko, J.S.C., in the Monmouth County vicinage of the Superior Court of New Jersey, Law Division; the United States Postal Service, Law Department in New York City; and the Internal Revenue Service Office of Chief Counsel in Newark, where he had the opportunity to make an appearance in the U.S. Tax Court in New York City.

Alex knew that he was interested in employment law before he began law school, having learned about the field from his father. As a result, Alex focused his studies and scholastic activities in this field, as seen through his role in the Employment Law Forum. This is also what drew Alex to his internship with the U.S.P.S. Law Department, which focused almost exclusively on labor and employment litigation. Alex also wrote his Law Review note on an employment law topic, the interplay between statutory whistleblower protections and a compliance or watchdog employee’s job responsibilities.

In recognition of his focus and passion for employment law, as well as his scholastic achievements in his labor and employment law courses, Alex was awarded the “Excellence in Labor Employment Law Award” for his graduating class. In addition, Alex was awarded the Order of the Coif and graduated magna cum laude.

Following graduation, Alex clerked for the Honorable Christine M. Nugent, J.S.C., in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Tax Court in Newark. Since joining Smith Eibeler, Alex has focused on a wide range of employment litigation matters, including restrictive covenants, independent sales representative commission cases, whistleblower, wage theft, and discrimination and retaliation.

Alex is admitted to practice in the State of New Jersey.

Client Reviews
We had a wrongful termination issue combined with a denial of unemployment insurance. Chris Eibeler was our primary attorney. His partner Bob Smith also consulted and gave us good advice. They were both so kind, caring, and professional. They guided us though a very tough time and a positive outcome versus a prior employer. They were also able to reverse our denial of unemployment insurance. I cannot recommend Smith and Eibeler highly enough. The entire staff is very professional, personable, and caring. Tom Wilson
I went to Smith Eibeler LLC for a last minute unemployment matter. Chris, Diane and his staff were very professional and easy to talk to. They provided knowledgeable insight and also kept me in the loop with the what was happening. I would not hesitate to go to him again. John Jung
Chris Eibeler (and the whole team) is very knowledgeable in all aspects of employment/unemployment here in NJ. They break down the most difficult aspects of the law, which allows you to conceptualize and better understand the complexities of the NJ Labor & Employment system. Smith Eibeler should be your first call regarding any Employment, workforce, or Labor questions here in New Jersey. I highly recommend them. Brian Allen
I approached Chris Eibeler regarding an unemployment case in early 2016. Him and his staff are some of the most professional people I have ever dealt with. The process took a while, but his approach to hard questioning helped me win my case. He knows how to get the job done and I am glad I went to him. I would recommend him to anyone in the future who asks for a lawyer. Thank you Chris! Tim F.
I highly recommend the office of Smith Eibeler for employment related issues, particularly anything related to restrictive covenants or post-employment contracts. I found Smith Eibeler via the web and cannot believe how fortunate I am to have found them. My case was handled by Bob Smith who represented me in a potential lawsuit by my former employer for violation of a post-employment contract (not a restrictive covenant per se). Bob was professional, friendly, understanding, and above all extremely helpful. Bob helped me avoid a lawsuit and was extremely knowledgeable in this field. I was thoroughly impressed with his prowess. Hopefully I will never have a legal issue related to employment again, but if I do, I will not hesitate to retain Smith Eibeler again! Gavin Tully
