The Second Judicial District Commission on Judicial Performance recommends that Judge Federico C. Alvarez BE RETAINED.

Judge Alvarez graduated from Pan American University in 1977 and received his law degree from Harvard Law School. He was admitted to the Colorado Bar in October 1980.

Judge Alvarez was appointed to the district court on February 2, 1990. He currently serves in the criminal division and has also served in the domestic relations and civil divisions.
