    Our hearts are heavy due to the attack on officers from our community last night. The Dallas Hispanic Bar Association stands in support with the Dallas Bar Association and the Sister Bar Associations in coming together to unite the city.  Our thoughts are with the victims, their families, and the City of Dallas as we mourn.

    In unity there is strength. The DBA will be organizing Together Dallas, a program meant to foster community relations across all races (Enlighten Minds, Elevate Leaders, Empower Our City). More details on sharing ideas and action items on this front are to come. As leaders of the Dallas community, we hope you will join us in this supporting this effort.

    In response to last night's tragedies, there is a prayer vigil scheduled for Sunday, July 10th at 6:00 p.m. at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church (1816 Routh St, Dallas, TX 75201). Reverend Butler invites the DBA and Sister Bar Associations to attend.

    Dallas Hispanic Bar Association Congratulates Hon. Judge Irma Carrillo Ramirez on her Nomination for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas


    Dallas, Texas. The Dallas Hispanic Bar Association congratulates the Honorable Judge Irma Ramirez on her nomination by President Obama for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas.

    Judge Ramirez has served as a United States Magistrate Judge for the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas since 2002. Beyond her legal acumen and judicial experience, Judge Ramirez’s public service record demonstrates her commitment to ensuring equal access to justice for all individuals, including the Hispanic community. In 2013, the Dallas Hispanic Bar Association presented Judge Ramirez with the La Luz Award, the organization’s highest honor. Before she was appointed to the court, she served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas, where she worked in the Civil Division from 1995 to 1999 and in the Criminal Division from 1999 to 2002. She began her legal career working as an associate for Locke Lord LLP from 1991 to 1995. Judge Ramirez received her J.D. from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law in 1991.

    The DHBA’s mission is to promote the social, economic, educational, and civic advancement of the DFW Metroplex Hispanic community by making the legal system more accessible and responsive to its needs.
