The Asian Pacific American Bar Association of South Florida


APABA was formed in 2003 over concerns about the lack of any organization in South Florida dedicated to the legal interests of the Asian Pacific American community.

Since its humble beginnings, APABA has grown steadily every year and now boasts an increasing membership of highly talented lawyers, jurists, and affiliated law students. Members range from solo practitioners, attorneys at large, multi-national law firms, government attorneys, law professors, and corporate in-house counsel.
