Our Clients Talk

I cannot stress how wonderful Alvarez Law has been. I contacted Steve originally and instantly felt comfortable and understood. Andy Kyres was the one that ended up taking my case and he was nothing short of amazing. He was pleasant to communicate with, and I am still amazed at what he was able to accomplish for me legally.

The whole team truly went above and beyond for me. I will be forever greatful, deciding to ‘go with Alvarez’ has been life changing! And Theresa (Mr. Kyres’s paralegal) was so sweet! Thank you to the whole Alvarez law team!
