With about 60 percent of the HNBA and NMHBA’s membership in Santa Fe present, attendees mingled over appetizers and drinks. In attendance were U.S. Representative Ben Ray Lujan, New Mexico District Court Judge Raymond Ortiz, University of New Mexico School of Law professor Antoinette Sedillo Lopez, Retired New Mexico Judge Daniel Sanchez, past-NMHBA President Helen Laura Lopez, New Mexico Legislative Council Service Director Raul Burciaga, Region XV President Roxie DeSantiago and many others. “Hearing about the history of Hispanic legal professionals coming together and making a difference in New Mexico was especially rewarding,” said NMHBA’s current President Rebecca Avitia of her conversations with the three past-NMHBA presidents in attendance.
