About us

The DBA is an organization of legal professionals and law students, which supports Latino members of the legal profession, particularly attorneys and law students of Dominican ancestry, in their pursuit of higher posts in the legal profession and other facets of influence in the United States.

The DBA also strives to support the at-large Latino community by organizing pro bono “Know Your Rights” legal workshops for members of the public, by providing scholarships and mentorship to law students, and by conducting career information activities for high school students at their schools and developing mentorships with the same, among other initiatives.

Formally founded in New York City in the 1990's as The American Society of Dominican Attorneys, The DBA has grown exponentially and encourages all Latino attorneys, as well as others within the profession, who subscribe to the goals and philosophy of the DBA to become members. 


Defense lawyers are threatening to withdraw from pro bono work until the government agrees to an increase in legal aid funding.

Defence lawyers say staffing issues in the prosecutors office could hurt the trial rights of defendants.
