Daniel "Danny" Michael Alvarez

Louisville - Danny Alvarez was born on March 27, 1975, in Queens New York. He returned to the Lord on May 23, 2018. He is survived by his wife, Therese, and his three children Gabriela, Benedict, and Isabela, along with his parents Maria and Ernesto Alvarez, his brother and sister, David and Susan, 5 nieces and nephews and close friends throughout the community.

Danny was a true treasure to our entire community. As a lawyer he was passionate about giving a strong voice to immigrants. He won numerous awards for his advocacy and for his work in standing up for justice.

Danny dedicated his life and career to public service. He began his legal career as a public defender protecting the rights of the indigent. Danny opened his private practice in 2003, in order to expand his advocacy to include helping immigrants, defending the accused, and assisting people from all walks of life in their time of need. Danny was a leader in the legal community, recognized for his talent, integrity, ethics, and pro bono service.

Danny was honored that on May 22nd, the citizens of this community voted overwhelmingly for him to serve as the first Latino Judge in Kentucky. Danny spent his last day with friends and family, feeling joyful about his historic win. He would want the community to know how grateful he was for their support.

So very, very sorry. I had the pleasure of working with Danny when, as a law student, he clerked for my former firm. Danny was a skilled and caring advocate, he will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of this. I recently (about 8 mo.) got to meet Mr. Alvarez as my husband's lawyer. But in the short time of knowing him,i know he was a very kind, caring, wonderful person. We need more people like Danny Alvarez in the world today. It was an honor to be able to meet and talk to such a wonderful person. R.I.P. Mr.Alvarez, i know you are greatly missed.
