Perhaps one of the finest Judges to ever sit on the bench. Knowledgeable, compassionate, and fair minded, Judge Alvarez possesses all the essentials necessary to be an outstanding jurist. He is passionate about both the law and protecting the children of our county. If you are not on board with protecting the rights of children, Judge Alvarez will set you straight. He truly is an outstanding Judge.

Civil Litigation - Govt.

Comment #: FL1989
One of the few judges who is constantly late. Does not know how to rule his court and let lawyers dictate their decision without showing any interest in the truth. definitely not fit for the job

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: FL823
One of the few judges who remains passionate about his job and in his case, protecting children who lack a voice. If all judges carried themselves this way, our system would be better served.

Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: FL643
He is not afraid to do what is just - even if that means going against the State or DCF. He acts like a judge should act except that he gets cantankerous sometimes.
