For over 40 years, the foundation has been dedicated to advancing African-Americans in the legal community, promoting diversity in the community and ensuring social justice for all.

“We’re thrilled to support Earl B. Gilliam Bar Association and its mission to promote diversity in our community and provide scholarships to minority law students,” said Susan Hack, partner, business & tort litigation attorney and head of diversity committee at Higgs Fletcher & Mack. “This sponsorship gives us the ability to make a direct impact on a student’s life, which is very important to all of us at Higgs.”

The celebration will honor the bold, innovative and selfless community leaders who use their voice for positive social change. More than 250 of San Diego’s top professionals, including judges, attorneys, firms, business owners, community leaders, and law students are expected to attend. The evening will include a night of inspiring speeches, awards, and entertainment.
