More Rape Claims Surface Against Alexander Brothers: Lawyer

At least 28 more alleged victims of the Alexander brothers have raised similar rape and sexual assault allegations against top broker Oren Alexander and his twin brother, according to the lawyer who filed the initial lawsuits.

The rush of alleged victims comes after two lawsuits were filed in New York accusing Oren and Alon of raping at least two women more than a decade ago, which The Real Deal was first to report. The cases were filed under the Adult Survivors Act, which temporarily eliminated the statute of limitations for civil sexual assault claims in New York. 

“I’ve spoken to approximately 15 people who say to me they were raped by the Alexander brothers, one [brother] or more, at various times, in New York City, South Beach and in other states as well,” firm partner Evan Torgan told TRD. Torgan later updated that number to 28, including conversations both he and his partners had with alleged victims. 

Torgan said he spoke with the alleged victims for the first time following TRD’s reporting on the lawsuits filed against Oren and Alon Alexander, a security firm executive. Both are based in South Florida. 

He and his other attorneys with New York-based law firm Torgan Cooper & Aaron are representing both women in separate lawsuits revealed by TRD earlier this week that alleged the brothers engaged in a pattern of gender-based violence against women. 

The Alexanders’ attorney, Jim Ferraro of the Ferraro Law Firm, has denied the allegations and called the lawsuits a “shakedown.” Ferraro, Oren and Alon did not immediately respond to requests for comment. 

Oren and Alon have been subject to sexual assault allegations dating back more than a decade, according to a lawsuit filed in Florida in 2013. The two brothers sued the anonymous author of a blog,, and other message board posts for posting “false and defamatory statements” alleging Oren and Alon committed rape.

A judge granted a temporary injunction in 2014 requiring the anonymous publisher to delete posts about the allegations. The blog has been removed, and the case was dismissed in 2016. 

No other legal action has been taken to level sexual assault accusations against the Alexanders beyond the two lawsuits filed in New York. The deadline for the defendants to respond to both lawsuits is Aug. 19.

Oren announced on Instagram Monday that he was taking a “pause” from Official, the Side-backed brokerage he co-founded with his brother Tal, Nicole Oge, Richard Jordan and Andrew Wachtfogel in 2022. 

Oren’s bio was removed from the Official website but he is still licensed with Official, Florida licensing records show.

Additional claims landed on TRD’s own Instagram page. An onslaught of comments under posts about the lawsuits and Oren’s “pause” from Official contains accounts claiming they were attacked by the Alexanders or know others who allegedly were. 

New York and Miami-based Official released a statement through their public relations firm Dada Goldberg that confirmed that Oren Alexander and Official “mutually agreed” on Oren stepping away from the company. Tal Alexander is now overseeing the Alexander Team.
