Advancing professionalism among our members while serving our community.
Welcome! The Highlands County Bar Association is a voluntary association of lawyers and judges who practice law and administer our judicial system in Highlands County, Florida. We strive to promote professionalism, provide educational opportunities for our members, and encourage public service to our community. And we hope to enjoy fun and fellowship along the way!
We focus our community service efforts on investing in our youth, through our renowned annual Law Day Program and our scholarship in memory of former HCBA President Jeanette Seamans Branham. The scholarship provides a local high school senior with a two-year, full-tuition scholarship to South Florida State College.
We meet on the third Wednesday of most months in the Jury Assembly Room of the Highlands County Courthouse in Sebring. Other major events include our HCBA Foundation Gala to support the scholarship fund, Red Mass, annual barbecue, and our Law Day luncheon and awards ceremony. All meeting notices are found here on our website and in regular emails to our members.
If you are interested in becoming a member, please click on the "Join" tab to submit an application. All members of the legal profession who do business in Highlands County are welcome and encouraged to attend.
2018-2019 President, Highlands County Bar Association
