About me

Daniel A. Alvarez, Sr. is a first-generation American born and raised in Florida. His family escaped communist Cuba seeking freedom and opportunity in the United States. He is one of three boys and credits his parents’ perseverance and courage in raising the family in a foreign country as one of his greatest motivators to date.

After high school, Danny attended the University of Florida as a second generation Gator and received his Bachelor’s of science in Journalism. While there, he was the Captain of the UF Club Lacrosse Team and the Cadet R.O.T.C. Battalion Commander. During his tenure in Gainesville, Danny served in the Florida National Guard with the 124th Infantry Regiment in Leesburg, Florida.
Upon graduation, Danny was commissioned as an Infantry Officer in the United States Army. During his time in the military, Danny was deployed to South Korea as a line platoon leader and later assigned to various leadership positions within the US Army Airborne School. While there, he was a jumping member of the historic Fort Benning Command Exhibition Parachute Team, “The Silver Wings.” Before he separated from the service, he earned a Masters of Science degree in Education from Troy State University in Alabama.

Seeking greater purpose and challenge, Danny attended Stetson University College of Law in Gulfport, Florida.

Upon graduation, he returned home to Tampa and began working for The Center for Special Needs Trust Administration and Boston Asset Management as Associate General Counsel.
