Lawyer Joseph Alvarez | Lawyer Car Accident
Prior to college Joseph G. Alvarez always had a sense of service. He dreamt of serving his country as an officer in the military. Tragically, a serious car accident in 2006 would preclude Joseph from ever attaining that dream. As fate would have it, Joseph’s life altering accident would become a blessing in disguise. Joseph had always viewed a career in law as an opportunity to advocate on behalf of those who could not otherwise find justice for themselves. That belief brought him to the University of South Florida where he graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and a focus on law. While at the University of South Florida, Joseph was very active on campus serving as an Associate Justice on the USF Supreme Court and as a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon national fraternity and Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law fraternity.
These studies and experiences inspired him to explore the ways the legal system fails to provide justice to so many and also prepared him for interpreting and understanding complex legal problems.
In 2013, Joseph graduated from Stetson University College of Law with a desire to practice both personal injury law and criminal defense. During law school Joseph gained real court room experience with the Tenth Judicial Circuit Public Defender’s Office in Polk County and was then chosen for an externship with the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit in Hillsborough County where he gained further courtroom experience in the Bay Area. Joseph was awarded the Distinguished Pro Bono Service award for his efforts in advocating on behalf of those who could not advocate for themselves. Throughout his second and third year of law school Joseph worked as a clerk for The Matassini Law Firm, P.A. where he gained invaluable experience in both the criminal defense and personal injury sectors.
Since graduation, Joseph has joined The Matassini Law Firm, P.A. as an associate attorney where he now dedicates his focus to the diligent and zealous representation of those seeking justice in their personal injury needs. Joseph recognizes the traumatic and chaotic experience of a serious auto accident and can empathize with his clients, as he understands what it is like to be in such a life altering situation. In addition to personal injury practice, Joseph also represents the criminally accused during their time of need in both State and Federal Courts. All clients receive Joseph’s personal cell phone number and are encouraged to contact him or our office should they have any questions or concerns regarding their case.
Joseph considers himself an avid outdoorsman and devout conservationist and aims to have a ranch of his own one day. In his free time, he enjoys hunting, biking, fishing, and sports. Joseph resides in the south Tampa area.
