“We are proud to honor those who have contributed to Los Abogados and the community. We strive to enhance the quality of legal information and services provided to the community, to raise law school scholarship funds for the advancement of Hispanics in the legal profession, and to promote business growth within the Hispanic and greater community in Arizona. It is with the dedicated hard work of our honorees, and the support of our members and donors that we are able to implement these goals. I look forward to honoring this year’s award recipients and look forward to seeing many of our friends on October 25th,” said Ashley Villaverde, Los Abogados’ Gala Co-Chair.
