Advancing professionalism among our members while serving our community.
Thank you for your interest in the Highlands County Bar Association. The judges and attorneys of the HCBA are dedicated to upholding the highest legal and ethical standards, providing educational and collaborative opportunities for our members, and working cooperatively to ensure the Highlands County justice system efficiently and effectively serves the community.
2020 is a year unlike any other. A global pandemic has radically transformed the legal profession. Many lawyers are working from home, meetings are conducted by phone or videoconference, and court proceedings have been drastically modified. Significant professional and personal events have been postponed or cancelled. Despite historic measures to protect the health and safety of the public, many have been impacted by illness or have lost their lives to COVID-19.
In Highlands County, the legal community is navigating these challenges together. Our Board of Directors is acting to ensure the Bar continues to deliver quality services to our members. We have prioritized education and communication as we work to share new information, procedural changes, and best practices with our members. Safety precautions may require adjustments to member benefits and annual events, but we are looking forward to the opportunity to innovate, modernize, and exceed expectations.
I am confident members of the Highlands County Bar Association will look back with pride and accomplishment when we reflect on the ways we adapted and persevered during this extraordinary time. JOIN US!
2020-2021 President, Highlands County Bar Association
