Bienvenidos

Welcome to the Tampa Hispanic Bar Association

The Tampa Hispanic Bar Association (“THBA”) was formed to bring together by association, communication and organization, lawyers, judges, and other members of the Tampa Bay legal community of Hispanic origin or descent and all others who support the mission of the THBA.

THBA seeks to promote the exchange of information and ideas related to the practice of law in order to enhance its members’ knowledge and skills. THBA also strives to provide resources and enhanced opportunities for the education of future attorneys of Hispanic origin or descent while promoting the improvement of Florida’s legal system. These efforts ultimately promote the organization’s important goals of improving the administration of justice and increasing the quantity and quality of the legal services rendered to members of the Hispanic community.

THBA’s membership consists of attorneys having significant experience in the representation of Hispanic clients, given that Hillsborough County has the fourth largest Hispanic population in Florida. In light of this need, THBA has developed programs to help the Hispanic community.
