Personal Injury & Criminal Law Exclusively

The Law Office of Walter J. Alvarez

For nearly 40 years, residents of Northwestern Indiana and Chicago have trusted the Walter J. Alvarez Law Office to provide skilled legal representation in personal injury and criminal defense cases. We have honed our skills in the courtroom since 1974 and are dedicated to fighting for the individual in the pursuit of justice.

Personal Injury Attorneys

If you have been injured in a car accident, medical error, fall, or other accident that was caused by another person’s reckless, careless, or negligent act, the personal injury attorneys at the Alvarez Law Office are here to help you hold that person accountable for his or her actions and to see that you receive full compensation for your losses. We fight aggressively on your behalf and will see the defendant in court if a fair and adequate settlement offer is not forthcoming.

At Alvarez Law, we keep you informed about the status of your case every step of the way, and you will always be involved in the decision-making process. You will even have a Walter Alvarez’s direct phone number, so you can always stay in touch.

Call the Alvarez Law Office as soon after the accident as possible, before you speak to an insurance adjuster, to avoid making a mistake that might compromise your case. We accept personal injury, medical malpractice, and wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis, so you can hire the attorney of your choice with no out-of-pocket expenses and pay nothing—ever—unless we win money for you.

Criminal Defense Lawyers

If you’ve been accused of a crime, whether a misdemeanor or a felony, Alvarez Law is ready and able to give you the best available defense and to protect your constitutional rights throughout the process. In many cases, we are able to have charges dropped or reduced so you can get on with your life. You should not speak with police or prosecutors without an attorney present, so contact us immediately when you’ve been arrested or when you discover you’re under investigation

We Are Experienced Trial Attorneys

We are master negotiators and can often get a favorable disposition of your civil or criminal case without having to go to trial. But make no mistake about it: above all else, we are trial lawyers. That means we will never rush to a quick settlement or plea agreement. We are not about a quick and dirty settlement or railroading a client to an unsatisfactory plea bargain. We are about justice, fairness, and the rights of the individual facing a formidable adversary, whether the government or an insurance company. We fight tirelessly for you and your loved ones, and will never sell out a client to a powerful adversary.

For an attorney you can trust in Indiana, you’ve come to the right place. With Alvarez on your side, you know you’re in good hands.
