Attorney Alston was born to entrepreneurial parents who were heavily involved in the civil rights movement, and is a product of their strong influential guidance to purpose his life and endeavors on social equality, cause-driven activism, and self-reliance with a focus on empowerment through community building. These values have also influenced his desire to espouse integrity, maintain ownership of his work-product, and develop clear communications.

Attorney Alston said, "[O]ne of the primary reasons I became and attorney was to make sure that people knew what I didn't know when I started out in business. I wanted people to know the value of strong agreements and be able to speak to an attorney that had been on the wrong end of a bad deal. Someone's got to fight for the little guy in business."

Entrepreneurship has been a driving force in his life, and began at an early age. Since his first lemonade stand and video game exchange, Attorney Alston has sought to maximize value for his clients. In 2001, Attorney Alston founded Movement Productions (now, Movement Productions, LLC) to provide quality event oriented entertainment and information services and resources. Similarly, Attorney Alston established McAlpine PLLC to provide client focused and dedicated customer service yielding high-quality legal counsel in a variety of practice areas.
