According to the most recent census, 15%, or 45.5 million, of the US population is Hispanic. Growth among Hispanics was responsible for half of the US population gains between 2000 and 2007.

A majority of the increase in the last 10 years came not from immigration but from births — children who will for the most part be educated in the United States and grow up speaking English. However, as the Hispanic population increases throughout this century, there will also be more Spanish-speaking immigrants who will require, or prefer, the services of attorneys who speak their first language.

Language fluency is usually listed at the end of a resume; consider it the frosting on a cake. It is also appropriate to include it near the end of your cover letter. Language skills can be the only thing that is setting you apart from the competition.
