Member Testimonials

"My connection to the HBA started when I was a scholarship recipient as a law student. I have found my experience with the HBA to be enriching on a personal and professional level. My own HBA journey includes gaining valuable practice tools from HBA-sponsored CLEs, sharpening my leadership skills as a member of the board and as an officer, and developing a vast network of colleagues from newly-admitted practitioners to experienced attorneys and members of the bench."

- Maria Z. Vathis, Past President

"The Hellenic Bar Association has provided an excellent opportunity to meet mentors and colleagues who share our Hellenic background and values. Their incredibly generous scholarship is a testament to the value the HBA places on nurturing and guiding young lawyers, and their dedication to helping fellow Hellenes. It has been a highlight of my law school career to be involved in HBA, and I look forward to continuing my involvement throughout my legal career!"

- Mary Fay Karras, 2018 HBA Scholarship Recipient
