ALEXANDRA C. WARREN joined Cuneo Gilbert & LaDuca in 2006 and has represented plaintiffs in a variety of complex litigation matters. She has litigated civil rights, consumer protection, product liability, and contract claims. Ms. Warren has made significant contributions to the firm’s strip search litigation practice, serving as class counsel in numerous cases brought against county governments challenging their jail intake procedures. Ms. Warren’s current practice focuses on defective building products and false advertising cases.
Prior to joining CGL, Ms. Warren served as a law clerk to the Honorable John E. Jones III, U.S. District Judge for the Middle District of Pennsylvania (2002—2004), and then practiced at a law firm in the Philadelphia area, where she focused on commercial litigation and employment law matters (2004-2006).
Ms. Warren’s representative matters include numerous cases in which she served as class counsel in multi-million dollar settlements of class actions brought on behalf of pretrial detainees who asserted that jail strip search policies violated the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Those cases were brought against municipalities across the country including in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and Texas. In Beals v. Bank of America, et al., 2011 WL 5415174 (D.N.J.

Ms. Warren has also worked on numerous defective building products cases, including representing owners of homes with defective CertainTeed roofing shingles and Gentek siding.
Ms. Warren lives in Tampa, FL, with her husband and two daughters.

She currently serves as the President of Listening Matters.
