The Palm Beach County Hispanic Bar Association is a nonprofit organization that over two decades has advocated for equality, diversity, representation and inclusion in the legal field. Our organization provides the Palm Beach County community with panels, discussions, and continuing legal education (CLE) on the legal rights and matters affecting Hispanics.

2022 President's Message
It is an absolute honor and privilege to serve as President of the Palm Beach County Hispanic Bar Association (“PBCHBA”) this year. Through the years, the PBCHBA has set itself out to be an organization rich in its service and commitment to the Hispanic/Latino community. I look forward to continuing to build on this legacy during my presidency.
As an immigrant, I understand the many challenges and opportunities that come with living in this country. I was born in the Dominican Republic and migrated to the United States at the age of 6 with very little schooling up to that point. Without much of a formal education, I endured many challenges once I was enrolled in school. I did not speak the language, nor did I know how to read or write. With tenacity and hard work, I learned to read and write within six months and went on to become fluent in English and excel in school. Education became the key to my success. I am a firm believer in the power of being educated and the many doors education and hard work can open. It is because of this that I am a tenacious supporter of education and helping students through mentorship, scholarships, and exposure to professionals in their fields of interests.
As we continue to navigate the Covid-19 Pandemic and find a safe and healthy medium for in person events, it is my goal to bring the members of the PBCHBA together with our community. I believe that we are stronger together, specially during these difficult and uncertain times. As such, it is my goal, with the assistance of the PBCHBA Board of Directors, members, and our dedicated sponsors to bring much needed aid to our community in the form of food drives, back to school supplies drive among other things.
The PBCHBA is proud of providing the tools that our community needs to foster education and to connect Hispanic/Latino attorneys with one another. We are committed to continuing to serve through mentoring programs, fulfill CLE requirements, foster referral relationships, and give back to our community through pro bono services and scholarships among other things.
On behalf of our Board, thank you for supporting our mission to assist and support the Hispanic/Latino community in South Florida and the work we carry out to advance Hispanics/Latinos in the legal profession. Please join us and become members to help us further our agenda.
May this new year bring you and your loved ones health and happiness. We look forward to seeing you all at the many exciting events we have lined up for 2022.
We are better together y SI SE PUEDE!
