Alejandra R. Gil, Partner, was recently elected Vice President of the Hudson Valley Hispanic Bar Association (HVHBA)

In June 2018, the Latino Judges Association, in conjunction with prominent Hispanic judges and attorneys from the Hudson Valley, began the groundwork for a Hispanic bar association. Concurrently, the Westchester County Access to Justice, Immigrant Rights and Services Sub-committee assessed the legal needs of Hispanics in the Hudson Valley and committed to ensuring that a Hispanic bar association was formed. The congruence of these efforts was the HVHBA, the first and only Hispanic bar association in the Hudson Valley which was officially formed in 2020. The mission of the HVHBA is to offer professional and personal support to its members in the 3rd and the 9th Judicial Districts of New York. The HVHBA also seeks to address the legal needs of the Hispanic community in the Hudson Valley.
