Daniel Alvarez


I was born in New York City to immigrant parents and grew up in an English and Spanish-speaking household. I danny-266x300experienced firsthand the struggles facing those who are new to this country. My first job was working as a paperboy at age 10. I have worked hard ever since. I moved to Kentucky in 1989 and was one of a handful of Latinos living in Louisville.

I graduated from the University of Louisville in 1997 with a Bachelor of Arts in History. I went on to attend the Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville in 2000. After graduating from law school, I began my legal career at the Jefferson County Public Defenders Office. There, I honed my skills defending the accused. I also gained an appreciation for the value in treating everyone with respect and compassion, regardless of their circumstances.

In 2003 I began my own practice. I focus on helping those facing criminal charges, individuals injured in accidents and in immigration matters.
