There’s   no   rank   among   Members,   but   our   retired/senior   Attorneys   garner   much   esteem.      Generally,   Members   of   our   local   bar consider   each   individual Attorney   with   the   same   level   of   respect.      In   great   practice   tradition;   however,   HLBA   does   recognize   that   that their   are   many   in   our   field   who   have   gained   a   great   deal   of   experience   from   even   younger   years   in   the   Law.      From   this   vantage,   we ascribe   to   the   belief   that   all   Members   learn   something   from   360   degree   viewpoints.      This   collegial   exchange   of   ideas   is   one   of   the reasons that makes our Association great.  Should they choose, Members may utilize these official seals in their advertising.
