He had a distinguished career as a litigation lawyer. He was previously an Associate of Atty. Dakila Castro. Later, he became a member of the Manila Chronicle’s Board of Advisers and President of the Citizen’s Legal Aid Society of the Philippines. He was President of Club Filipino during the centennial celebration of Philippine independence in 1998, a Legal Consultant of the Department of National Defense, and the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process from 2001 to 2004.
