Hispanic Bar Association of Central Florida

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 and advocates for equality, diversity, and inclusion in the legal field. We provide the community with educational information on the legal rights impacting Hispanics. We support Hispanics in becoming judges, attorneys/lawyers, law professors, law students, civic leaders, and business owners throughout Central Florida.
