What do I do?

I am a Public Attorney.  As a Public Attorney, bulk of my workload involves representing clients who are embroiled in a legal dilemma due to their alleged involvement in the illegal drug trade.

I also handle Labor, Admin, and Civil cases.

In line with my duty as a Public Attorney, I also make myself busy by attending to speaking engagements as Resource Person on chosen topics.

I am also working on my accreditation as an Addiction Professional by going through a series of trainings.

Lastly, I volunteer as Management consultant for Bright Hope Room for Growth, Inc., a pre-school that I co-founded with my wife.


I took up Speech and Theater Arts at Silliman University, Dumaguete City and finished Bachelor of Laws at Saint Louis University, Baguio City.  I am taking up Master in Management at the Institute of Management, University of the Philippines – Baguio but I am currently on leave due to my heavy work load.


I am a bible believing Christian and I believe that Jesus died for my sins.

    1. Hi tweet Newscaster! 🙂 Thanks for reading. 🙂 I read your article and I noticed that you based your advise from R.A. 386. I will say that your advice to your reader is partially correct with regard to the fact that there is no legal impediment in marrying your second cousin.

      I just want to point out that we now have Executive Order No. 209 or The Family Code of The Philippines. Under the said code, incestuous marriage as defined in article 81 of R.A. 386 is now contained under article 38 of The Family COde of The Philippines which states: The following marriages shall be void from the beginning for reasons of public policy: (1) Between collateral blood relatives, whether legitimate or illegitimate, up to the fourth civil degree; (relatives up to first cousins) xxxx

      So, based on the provisions of the law e walang bawal kapag kinasal ka sa 2nd cousin mo. Except that medyo taboo lang dito sa Pinas pa. 🙂
