The Dominican Bar Association (the “DBA”) is honored to congratulate and support the nomination of the Honorable Hector D. LaSalle for Chief Judge of the New York State Court of Appeals. Justice LaSalle is one of the seven nominees selected by the Commission on Judicial Nomination for the Chief Judge Vacancy.
We are happy to support a Judge who shares the values and mission of the Dominican Bar Association – To support Latino members of the legal profession. Justice LaSalle was a founding member of a Hispanic Bar Association in Long Island.
Justice LaSalle is currently the Presiding Justice for the Appellate Division of the Second Judicial Department and possesses administrative experience in the courts. He has over 14 years of judicial experience. He is currently the only Latino and his appointment would be historic.
The DBA is an organization of legal professionals and law students, which supports Latinx members of the legal profession, particularly attorneys and law students, in their pursuit of higher posts in the legal profession and other facets of influence in the United States.
