The Nashville Hispanic Bar Association (NHBA) recently appointed Bass, Berry & Sims attorneys David Esquivel and Ginette Garza Brown to leadership positions within the organization. David will serve as the organization’s first president and guide the organization’s strategic direction through the initial launch of the new professional association. Ginette will serve as the secretary of the board of directors. This NHBA promotes diversity in the law and advocates for the interests of Nashville-area Latino attorneys and the communities they serve.
Part of the NHBA’s focus during the coming months will be to implement the Immigrant Right to Eviction Counsel project, a new program funded by a two-year pilot grant from the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County. The NHBA’s program is part of a larger effort by the Nashville Right to Counsel Coalition, an alliance among the NHBA, Conexión Américas, and the Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee & the Cumberlands, who will work together to ensure equity and inclusion in the legal system and address the Metro Nashville-Davidson County housing instability crisis.
David serves as the firm’s pro bono member. In that capacity, he devotes half his practice to leading teams in significant pro bono litigation and managing the firm’s overall pro bono efforts. Learn more about David’s practice and pro bono work here.
Ginette counsels clients in all aspects of employment and labor relations law, helping employers remain compliant with the constantly changing regulations that impact the workplace. She frequently works with companies on issues regarding employee discipline, wrongful termination, discrimination, defamation, harassment, breach of contract, and other matters.
