Phil Alvarez came on board as the Director of 9/11 Outreach and Education at Hansen & Rosasco, LLP in September 2019. Phil previously worked with his brother Luis to lobby in Washington, D.C., for the passage of the Never Forget the Heroes: James Zadroga, Ray Pfeifer, and Luis Alvarez Permanent Authorization of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund Act.
Luis Alvarez was an NYPD bomb squad detective whose heroism on 9/11 led to his colon cancer, over 60 chemotherapy treatments, and his death in 2019. Before his death, Alvarez became a champion of 9/11 responders and the benefits they continually deserve.
Phil Alvarez has since dedicated his career to standing up for the rights of 9/11 first responders in honor of his brother. Before joining Hansen & Rosasco, LLP, he worked for the Suffolk County Police Department for 32 years, including 25 years as a detective. His work continues with the law firm as a community advocate and educator regarding 9/11-related cancer and other injuries.
