My Son’s Difficult Case

My son was facing a difficult case. He found himself in a bad situation due to bad judgment. He was facing jail time. I found Mr. Alvarado on the Internet after my search for a highly recommended attorney via his peers. I was pleasantly surprised that he answered my call immediately. I didn’t have to go through a secretary, or an answering service. He took time to discuss my son’s case and offered a meeting the very next day. We met and I was not only relieved but confident that he was the right attorney for the case. He was very diligent and knowledgeable and he reviewed the case piece by piece. He was always in constant communication with us and was always honest and forthcoming with information. He spent countless hours on this case. It was long,but he fought the battle, and in the end my son’s case was dismissed! I not only highly recommend Mr. Alvarado, but I consider him a family friend! He genuinely cares about his clients and his experience is Insurmountable!

Absolutely amazing

Gilbert handled my husbands case with apparent ease. He knows his way around a courtroom and is wonderful to work with. Gilbert coached my husband through unpleasant court appearances, handled everything without having to be asked and clearly explains any and everything to us. I would absolutely recommend Gilbert Alvarado for any legal trouble you may be facing. He cares about his clients, and he will get you through your case with the best possible outcome.

Best in Houston

Mr. Alvarado helped me out more than most would. He is very knowledgeable and kept me informed all the way through both of my cases. I was wrongly charged with MIP. I just happened to be at a place where there was some beer cans on the ground. The officers decided to give everybody MIPs. There was about 30 of us that received these. Mr. Alvarado was able to get the case dismissed without any questions. On my other case, PI, Mr. Alvarado handled this case more than I ever expected. He was able to get the case dismissed without any community service or any penalties. I would not recommend any other lawyer in this area. Mr. Alvarado does exactly what he says he is going to do. He is the way to go.

Experienced, Connected & Responsive

Gilbert could not have done better for us! Our outcome was just what we wanted. He guided us through a challenging process while encouraging us to stay the course. He also seems to know everyone personally, including most of the judges and attorneys and is on a first name basis with them. That really helped in our case.

Gilbert is professional, communicates well, and has the experience we needed. As well, we always felt we were his only clients.

Top Notch Lawyer. Top Notch Individual.

I have not ever had to personally have Mr. Alvarado represent me however; he has represented several close friends of mine. Mr. Alvarado took his personal time to speak with me about a case and my personal responsibilities as victim of domestic violence. I walked out of his office with a weight lifted off of my shoulders, he reminded me that I truly was the victim, and not at fault and really discussed with me how to avoid being in the same situation ever again. I am proud to say I took his advice, I walked away from something and someone who was floundering. Mr. Alvarado gave me the knowledge and backbone to change my life, and my future. I can truly never express how his kindness changed who I was and who I would become. Mr. Alvarado is not only a top notch lawyer, he is a top notch individual and he truly cares about his clients and everyone involved in the cases he handles. This is truly a rarity in the law field. I’m proud that if I was ever in need of his services (hopefully I never do) I could not only call him my attorney, but my friend.

Well-known and Likable in The Courtrooms!

Mr. Alvarado is one of the most honest people I have worked with. He is very specific with his work and reiterating the laws until you understand. Well-known and likable in the courtrooms, which is an absolute plus. I was on my second offense and he was able to get my case dismissed. He was very understanding and cared about my situation and made me feel like his own mother in court. He is someone you can trust. Very blessed to have had him as my lawyer. Highly recommend Mr. Alvarado.

The only lawyers to call.

I was charged with aggravated robbery and needed a strong lawyer to stand up to the Harris County prosecutor who wanted to send me to prison for 30 years. Jim Lindeman stood toe to toe with that prosecutor and after a week long jury trial won my freedom. I owe everything to the expert trial work of Jim Lindeman and Gilbert Alvarado. They are the only lawyers to call. They got results for me.


Gilbert Alvarado did an excellent job.

A friend that works at the University of Houston Law Center recommended Gilbert Alvarado to me. She commented that if she were in “trouble with the law” that is who she would call. Well, that proved to be true! Not only did Gilbert Alvarado do an excellent job representing me; but also I benefited from Jim Lindeman’s expertise. The first day I met with Gilbert he told me that he could not predict how my cases would turn out, but he did promise that he and his partners would fight long and hard for me. As a result of their hard work, my cases resulted in the DISMISSAL of both cases!


You will not find anyone better.

Mr. Alvarado was the the utmost professional lawyer I have ever came across.
I was arrested with a DWI last fall (2011). Without much detail i already knew it was going to be a tough case, with it’s circumstance. As I was sitting in jail, I already knew who I was going to call because I have heard nothing but amazing things with Mr. Alvarado and his extensive experience with defense law. Furthermore, I called and set up a meeting. Even with how busy he is, he still makes time and looked at every little detail to your case. Mr. Alvarado didn’t “sugar-coat” anything, simply and politely telling me that it was going to be a busy,long, rough and tough case and how every detail would make a difference. Then, we set up a payment plan (him being so understanding of my income) it couldn’t have gone any better. I, of course, leaving the office was stressed but then I knew I put my case in very good hands. He had sent me home with “homework”. EX: writing a short story of my goals, things I have accomplished, extra curricular activities, community service and so on. For instance, writing out my resume. He tackled this case in every which way, him knowing what they look at and what they look for. Mr. Alvarado was always staying in touch, also having a meeting at the scene so he could see not just what I went through but also the act of the police officers. Every time we were in court he was on time, and so professional, always letting me know everything that was going on in such a secretive way. People don’t need to know why you are there and that was the last thing I wanted.
Mr. Alvarado was so precise with everything that was built into my case. I, yes, do have an extensive background and I knew that was definitely going to be a burden. However, that did not stop Gilbert from fulfilling his duties, he would never give up. I know he worked so hard with what he had to fight for, for me. Long office hours and extensive research but he did it! He got my case dismissed, of course after plenty number of times in court. (in less than 6 months) It fell through and go got across to them that they couldn’t prove that I was driving, also found all kinds of mistake the police officer had made, research every bit about all the situations.(I was asleep on my car while it was still running) Furthermore, it he made me always feel at ease and that everything was going to be okay. I trusted him and put all of my faith in him and he never let me down, not once. Mr. Alvarado is a true blessing for people that need that fighting chance, and everyone does. I will always recommend him and will never use anyone else. Definitely more than 5 stars in all categories.

Great man. Great attorney. Great law firm.

I normally do not write reviews, but this is one of those circumstances where it is a must. About a year ago, I found myself in a position where I did not know what to do. I needed legal advice and I am glad that Mr. Alvarado and his firm took time to talk with me and review my case. They walked with me step by step until my case was resolved.

I had always heard great things about Mr. Alvarado and his law firm and I knew them to be extremely knowledgeable in regards to the law, but there is so much more. They are also objective, sincere, and personable. I thought that combination was nonexistent. I was wrong.

Not only did I work with two great attorneys, I met great people.

I am truly blessed.

Thank you,

Will get the job done!!!

I have hired him on 2 separate occasions for my husbands criminal cases. His first case was about 6-7 years ago and could have been facing up to 20 years for possession of a controlled substance. With the help of Mr. Alvarado he received 6 years probation. Recently he violated probation and could have been facing up to 20 years in TDC again. Thankfully Mr. Alvarado was able to get his probation reinstated.

Hire without a doubt!

I found myself in a very hard situation and was very nervous about the outcome of my DWI case. I was charged with a DWI with a child under 15 years of age. Mr. Alvarado from day 1 made it clear he took my case and the outcome of my situation very serious and I knew getting the best possible outcome was a priority for him. He kept me well informed and was always there willing to talk and answer questions whether through email or phone calls. Even with feeling many circumstances were stacked against me Mr. Alvarado continued to work hard on my case for several months and continued to make sure that the best outcome would be achieved. He was able to take my case from a felony charge to a misdemeanor and it saved not just my daily life but my career. Even after getting the charges reduced he continued to fight for my probabtion terms until he got was what was the best for me. Still after months of getting my case resolved he even went back to court for me to help me get terms of my probabtion changed. He is extremely knowledgable on the laws and how to work with the District Attorneys and Judges. With Mr. Alvarado you will never feel like just a client. He will work hard for you and make it his personal goal to make sure he gets the best possible results. Even after he will continue to fight for you and answer your questions. Without a doubt he is the lawyer anyone should hire because as I learned anything can happen to anyone and you need not just a lawyer but a good person there to fight for you.
