Alvin was born in Managua, Nicaragua and graduated from Instituto Pedagogico De La Salle in Managua. He came to the United States in 1980. After graduating from the University of New Orleans with a degree in Political Science, Alvin attended and graduated from the Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas.
With his adventurous spirit, Alvin decided to open his own law practice after passing the Texas State Bar in 1993. He began his practice in Galveston County, Texas mainly as a family law, CPS and criminal attorney. Through the years, Alvin expanded his practice to the areas of Personal Injury and Immigration Law. Alvin worked in Liberty, Chambers, Galveston, Harris and Brazoria Counties.
He was a longtime resident of League City, Texas. Alvin was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, as well as a member of the Galveston County Bar Association. Alvin’s family and friends will remember him as someone who could bring a smile to anyone’s face when he walked in a room. He will especially be remembered as a great Immigration attorney, as well as an avid cyclist. He enjoyed riding his beloved “Gray Ghost” (the Orbea) with the Plebeian Horde Cycling Group and with his friends at Sun & Ski.
