President's Message

Message: Miami Lakes Bar Association PresidentSince 2005, the Miami Lakes Bar Association has been committed to providing its members and the legal community with meaningful networking and interesting educational opportunities. Now in its seventh year, the MLBA continues to grow and create a collegial atmosphere between the legal and business communities.

The legal community in Miami Lakes and surrounding areas is benefiting from the increasingly popular MLBA luncheons and happy hours. These MLBA events are a great way to meet other legal and business professionals, enhance friendships, generate more business and have fun. Our events are open to all attorneys and business professionals.

In 2011, the MLBA offered its members and friends eight CLE luncheons, including a panel featuring four Miami-Dade Circuit Judges, three happy hours, and two joint networking events. This year, the MLBA will continue to provide quality events and high-caliber speakers. You can find out more information about our upcoming events by clicking on the “Events” tab.

We invite you to visit us on Facebook and see photos of our past events. If you would like to sponsor an MLBA event or have questions about our association, please contact me at 305-823-2300 or by e-mail at I am happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.

We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!
