Hispanic Bar Association of Central Florida

The Hispanic Bar Association of Central Florida, Inc. is a non-profit organization incorporated in 1991. The founding members of this group of Hispanic attorneys recognized a dire need for representation of the Hispanic community which made up a great part of the population in Central Florida.  Our mission is to serve as the local voice for the concerns and opinions of Hispanics in the community generally, and in the legal profession in particular; to develop mechanisms to facilitate the exchange of information among Hispanics involved in all segments of the legal profession; and to work with other bar associations, local and statewide judges, governmental agencies, and community groups to achieve greater involvement in and understanding of the American legal system by the local Hispanic community.  Our organization has over 100 members today and as we grow, so does the momentum for change.
