Palm Beach County Hispanic Bar Association
The Palm Beach County Hispanic Bar Association’s (PBCHBA) mission is to assist and support the Hispanic community in South Florida through volunteer programs, as well as to stand behind Hispanics seeking a position in the judiciary in Palm Beach County. The PBCHBA also works to provide information to individuals who may be intimidated by the rules of the Small Claims, County and Circuit Courts due to language barriers and limited access to legal resources. We understand the Spanish-speaking population’s struggles and seek to provide assistance to those in need.
DEADLINE: by 5:30 p.m. Jan. 14, 2019
There is one lawyer vacancy on each of Florida’s 26 Judicial Nominating Commissions, and The Florida Bar has the opportunity to nominate three lawyers for each commission to the governor for his appointment. Each appointee will serve a four-year term, commencing July 1, 2019. For more information, click here.

Message from the President
I am honored to serve as this year’s President of such a great ongoing organization as the Palm Beach County Hispanic Bar Association.
