Hispanic Lawyer Forum

HALSA will be hosting our annual Hispanic Lawyer Forum. Lunch will be provided! Attorneys from Kansas City and Lawrence (Heber Gonzales, Janell Avila, and David Trevino) will be here to answer your questions about the role that diversity plays in the legal market. The focus of the meeting will be how relationships with diverse attorneys can help you succeed. In other words, if you are not a Latino, come hear how you can benefit from knowing an attorney who is.
