Phan Alvarado

Weitz & Luxenberg PC

Born in Vietnam, Phan Alvarado is a gifted practitioner of the law of torts. She is a member of our Asbestos Litigation team. In 2016, Ms. Alvarado was named as a 2016 New York Metro Rising Star by Super Lawyers magazine.

Ms. Alvarado’s impassioned work on behalf of the surviving kin of three men who died of mesothelioma helped bring about a very satisfying 2014 courtroom verdict worth $12.5 million. The case was by no means an easy one — the defendants fought tooth-and-nail for four months to prevent Ms. Alvarado and her trial teammates from establishing to the jury’s satisfaction that all three plaintiffs developed mesothelioma as a result of the defendants causing them to be exposed to asbestos on the job.

Ms. Alvarado joined Weitz & Luxenberg in 2010. Ms. Alvarado prior to that served as a Bronx County assistant district attorney where she aided in the prosecution of cases involving felony narcotic crimes. She began her career in 2005 following admission to the State of New York Bar.

Ms. Alvarado holds a juris doctor degree from St. John’s University School of Law. During her enrollment there, she served as administrative director of the school’s mock-trial program — the Polestino Trial Advocacy Institute — after initially becoming involved with it while still in her first year of studies (a rarity among students at that stage of learning).

Ms. Alvarado went on to emerge as one of the mock-trial team’s preeminent members, helping her colleagues win the Texas Young Lawyers Assn. regional championship and gain a berth in the national finals (St. John’s earned top-ranking among mock-trial programs nationwide by the time Ms. Alvarado completed her schooling).

Leading up to law school, Ms. Alvarado garnered from St. John’s a 2002 bachelor of arts degree in criminal justice along with an academic excellence award for her stellar classroom achievements in pursuit of that major; she graduated summa cum laude.
