In recognition of Hispanic Heritage, the Broward County Bar Association and the Broward County Hispanic Bar Association held a virtual “Behind the Gavel” event, in honor and celebration of our county’s Hispanic judges last week. Judge Marina Garcia-Wood was recognized as a Trailblazer, for her role in founding the Broward County Hispanic Bar Association in 1989. She and other colleagues established the organization with the aim to promote judicial diversity and the interests of Hispanic lawyers. It was the first of its kind in Broward County.
