Hispanic Heritage: Recognizing Broward’s Hispanic Jurists

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 in mid-September. 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.

The Broward Bar also hosted “The Florida Jurist: Recognizing Hispanic Excellence,” a virtual statewide event conducted jointly with other bar associations throughout Florida, in honoring Hispanic Judicial excellence. Our own Judge Robert Diaz was one of the judges honored for his many years on the bench and for his zealous work mentoring and teaching.
