Trailblazer in the legal profession
Directly Supporting Diversity Efforts
We are champions of diversity and inclusion efforts, committed to creating a law firm that is representative of our client base and the community in which we practice law.
There are innumerable ways in which we support local and national diversity efforts, organizations, and pipeline programs. From being a founding law firm for the San Diego County Bar Association’s annual Diversity Fellowship Program and being one of the first signatories to their diversity pledge, to providing sponsorship support to multiple minority bar associations.
Our internal Diversity Committee is charged with developing and supporting education, minority retention and recruitment, mentorship programs, and a variety of other diversity initiatives. We host large diversity and inclusion-related annual events, including the San Diego County Bar Association’s Committee on Diversity and Inclusion’s annual mixer, Ethnic Relations and Diversity Committee’s Spring Mixer and co-sponsorship of the organization’s annual Dialogue on Diversity event.
HFM is also the proud recipient of the Corporate Diversity Award from the Earl B. Gilliam Bar Association, the largest association of African American judges, attorneys, and legal professionals in San Diego. As we begin the next chapter in our 80-year history, we will ensure that diversity and inclusion continue to shape the fabric of our law firm now and into the future.
