We close this newsletter with a very heavy heart; we are deeply saddened by the passing of Judge Frank Ospino. Judge Ospino was one of the HBA’s biggest supporters. He leaves a legacy of a legal track record and work ethic to be admired, his humanity was undeniable and his support of the HBA unwavering. We had the pleasure of honoring him as Attorney of the Year in 2013 and our 2020 Judge of the Year. Accolades and honors cannot begin to describe the legacy he leaves behind. Living a true American Dream, he came from an immigrant family and was the first in his family to attend college and thereafter entered the legal profession with a commitment to help those in need and made a difference in every life he touched. His compassion, dedication, humbleness, zeal, excellence and kindness made him truly one of a kind. Please take a moment to keep his family and loved ones in your thoughts and prayers. Judge Ospino will be sorely missed; however we will strive to continue his legacy by following the trail he blazed. 

Warmest regards, 

Christopher J. Ayala
