On behalf of the whole 2020 HBACF Board, we welcome you with open arms to our association. Whoever you are, you are family!
2020 has been a year of unprecedented circumstances. We must remember, that through these times, we are all in this together, and together we will all make it out of this stronger. We have been complying with CDC guidelines and want to ensure are membership are healthy and safe while still being able to keep touch with each other and the community.
We are thankful we were still able to carry on our traditional event, among other virtual events, the “Path to the Bench”. This year will include more virtual events, including our membership mixer, scholarship, Hispanic heritage month, and more. Unfortunately, one of our beloved signature events, Domino Tournament, will have to be postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19.
We hope you take a look around our page and join us at HBACF!
Honored to be at your service,
Natalie E. Quinonez
The Hispanic Bar Association of Central Florida, Inc. (the “HBACF”) is a non-profit organization that was incorporated on September 3, 1991. The founding members of the HBACF were Norberto S. Katz, Esq. as Executive Director, Raul Alvarez, Esq. Angel Bello-Bellini, Esq., Wilfredo Martinez, Esq., Armando Payas, Jr., Esq., Jose Rodriguez, Esq., and Ana Tangel-Rodriguez, Esq. This group of Hispanic attorneys recognized the immense need for support and representation of the Hispanic community in the legal field.
Over three decades later, it is indisputable that the HBACF’s mission remains as meaningful and important today as it was when it was formed. Today, the over 200 members are made up of judges, magistrates, attorneys, legal assistants, law students, and other members of the community.
