President’s Message

Dear MHBA Members and Friends:

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as President of the Maryland Hispanic Bar.

I want to start by thanking our members and especially the board of directors and officers for all of their hard work. I know you will continue to work hard to promote the goals and mission of our association. Without your help our organization would not be successful.

This year we will continue our participation in the in the Montgomery County Bar Association Summer Scholars “Pipeline” Program, designed to encourage diversity in Montgomery County law firms. The MHBA conducts preliminary interviews of law student candidates to the program, and our nominees often secure a summer internship with a prominent firm.   We applaud the County and the firms that participate in this important program, as they demonstrate their commitment to the importance of diversity in the hiring and retention of talented, young, Hispanic attorneys.

In addition, our members have been actively participating in expungement clinics throughout the state. Expungement clinics are a wonderful opportunity to change the life of citizens who were charged with offenses but were not convicted.  These clinics provide them with a fresh start that removes barriers to employment and housing. This year we will continue to expand our Mentoring program. We are working with local law schools to mentor the next generation of Hispanic attorneys. I would like to thank our board for their hard work in expanding our new programs.

The MHBA invites you to join our organization and help our legal community in advancing Hispanics in the legal profession and participate in helping the needs of the ever-growing Hispanic community in Maryland.  For more information, please contact me at jquincosa@gmail.com.  I look forward to working with all of you and to a successful 2016-2017 year!

Jessica Quincosa, Esq.
