From a young age, I knew that I wanted to advocate on behalf of others in a courtroom. Growing up in Brandon, Florida, I began shadowing a local attorney as early as middle school to learn as much as possible about becoming an advocate for others. Being very competitive, at Brandon High School I competed at the state and national level in both pre-law intramural competitions and winning a team state championship with Brandon’s nationally recognized wrestling team.
I proudly attended the University of Florida where I continued to hone my skills in hopes of advocating in the courtroom. Along with several classmates, we formed a nationally competitive undergraduate trial team defeating teams from Yale and Harvard.
I then applied and was accepted to the best trial advocacy law school in the country, Stetson University College of Law. In all three years of law school, I participated in the school’s number one ranked trial team. I was named the “Best Advocate” by the Trial Lawyers Section of the Florida Bar at their annual state championship my final year in law school. Later that year, I was honored to be chosen by Stetson to attend “Top Gun”, a competition limited to the top advocate from each of the top sixteen schools for trial advocacy.
I was hired by one of the top trial firms in Florida to practice personal injury law. Trying my first case in my second week as an attorney, I quickly gained experience at the highest level dealing with some of the worst possible personal injury and wrongful death claims alongside and against the best lawyers in Florida. I have handled cases involving minor and major car crashes, trucking crashes, slip or trip and falls, youth and adult sports injuries as a result of negligence, sexual assault and molestation claims, and injuries as a result of inadequate or negligent security.
Since I have been practicing, I have been recognized by multiple publications including:
The Best Lawyers® in America, 2020-2022
Florida Super Lawyers - Florida Rising Star®, 2017-2022
Florida Legal Elite, Florida Trend Magazine, 2020
I have had success throughout my practice by focusing individually on each case as opposed to trying to have the “biggest” practice. At Alvarez Gower, we bring a creative, aggressive and relentless approach to each client’s case. We will not rest until we obtain justice for you.
