The Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey (HBA-NJ) proudly congratulates past HBA-NJ Presidents Judge Esther Salas, Camelia Valdes, Anna Maria Tejada, and Melinda Colón Cox for their selection to the ROI-NJ’s prestigious 2021 Women in Business List. The ROI-NJ is a well-respected business media company known for providing news impacting New Jersey’s business community and for its annual top influencers in New Jersey lists.

Not surprisingly, the ROI recognized four past HBA-NJ presidents this year, naming the Honorable Esther Salas, a District Court Judge for the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, Camelia Valdes, Passaic County Prosecutor, and Anna Maria Tejada, a Partner at Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP, to its “Top 50 Women Influencers” list, and Melinda Colón Cox, a Partner at Parker Ibrahim & Berg Partner, to its “Top Women in Professional Services” list.
HBA-NJ President, Reynold Lambert, stated: “The HBA-NJ celebrates the ROI-NJ’s recognition of influential women leaders in New Jersey, and is honored to see several of its past Latina presidents listed on the 2021 ROI Influencers: Women in Business List. They are all rock stars paving the way for future Latina leaders, and we could not be more proud of them. We will continue to promote the advancement of our women leaders and look forward to seeing more of our leadership on ROI-NJ’s influencer lists in years to come.”
