PROF. RAUL C. SABADO, J.D.

A Lawyer by Day, A Professor by Night

I   received   my   Juris   Doctorate   degree   from   Loyola   Law   School   of   Los   Angeles   and   my undergraduate    degree    in    Economics    from    California    State    Polytechnic    University, Pomona, where   I   am   currently   an Adjunct   Professor   in   the   Political   Science   Department. I   am   also   an   Adjunct   Professor   at   University   of   La   Verne,   College   of   Law.   Prior   to   joining the    Los    Angeles    County    Public    Defender’s    Office    in    2005,    I    served    the    people    of Monterey   County   at   the   Public   Defenders   Office   during   law   school.   Upon   graduation,   I worked    as    a    civil    litigator    for    the    Law    Offices    of    Guerrero    &    Chan,   where    I    gained valuable   experience   in   civil   matters.   At   the   Public   Defender’s   Office,   I   have      personally handled   thousands   of   criminal   cases.   and   I   gained   substantial   jury   trial   experience.   In addition, I serve as the President of the San Gabriel Valley Lawyer Referral Service. In    addition    to    representing    adults,    I    represented    hundreds    of    children    in    juvenile delinquency   court   and   I   gained   an   understanding   of   the   unique   sanctions   of   the   juvenile justice   system   and   its   bench   trials   that   very   few   criminal   defense   attorneys   have.   In addition,   I   received   many   hours   of   training   to   meet   the   court’s   rigorous   standards   so   that I   could   serve   on   the   panel   of   appointed   juvenile   defense   counsels   at   the   Pomona Courthouse, where I am currently a court-appointed counsel.   At   Cal   Poly   Pomona,   I   am   also   the   Lead   Coach   to   the   award-winning   and   nationally-ranked   Cal   Poly   Pomona   Mock   Trial   Team.   I teach   university   students   the   skills   of   trial   lawyers,   law,   evidence   and   general   courtroom   demeanor.   Each   year,   my   students compete   in   national   tournaments   against   students   from   other   universities   in   trials   judged   by   real   judges   and   lawyers.      Under   my leadership,   the   students   continue   to   expand   the   university’s   trophy   cabinet.      Not   a   year   goes   by   without   my   team   earning   awards for   the   university.   I   donate   my   time   to   advise   Cal   Poly   Pomona   students   as   a   pre-law   advisor   and   I   have   created   the   popular   “Ask   a Lawyer   Series”   lectures   that   serve   to   provide   legal   information   to   students   and   the   community.   Topics   have   ranged   from   the   law school application process to individual rights during a police investigation. In   my   free   time,   I   enjoy   camping,   biking,   hiking,   and   discovering   this   beautiful   country with   my wife   and   two young   children   in   an   RV. I   find   tremendous   fulfillment   in   mentoring   future   lawyers   and   those   unsure   of   whether   the   practice   of   law   is   a   good   career   choice for   them.   My   office   provides   unique   opportunities   for   a   select   few   undergraduate   interns   each   semester   in   gaining   unparalleled experience in criminal defense and working in a law office. HOW AM I DIFFERENT? You will   generally   find   three   types   of   attorneys who   practice   criminal   defense:   First   are   those who   advertise   criminal   defense   as   part   of their   legal   services   but   it   really   makes   up   a   small   part   of   it.   They   are   often   family      law   or   business   law   attorneys   who   take   on   criminal defense   to   support   their   practice.   Second,   there   are   the   media   hounds   who   advertise   DUI   representation   on   radio   and   television   but who   will   never   know   you   personally   or   even   see   your   file.   You   get   an   attorney   assigned   to   your   case.   Third,   there   are   the   sole practitioners   who   lack   the   resources   to   leave   no   stone   unturned   and   often   plead   you   out   at   the   first   court   date   without   a   thorough analysis of the facts.  So how am I different? I    HAVE    SPENT    MY    ENTIRE    CAREER    DEFENDING    REAL    PEOPLE   WITH    FEELINGS    OF    ANXIETY,    FAMILIES    TO SUPPORT AND THEIR FREEDOMS AT STAKE. I   NOT   ONLY   HAVE   EXPERIENCE   AND   EXPERTISE   BUT   I   TEACH   IT   TO   OTHERS.   MANY   OF   MY   FORMER   STUDENTS ARE NOW DISTRICT ATTORNEYS AND PUBLIC DEFENDERS. I    MEET    WITH    EACH    CLIENT.    I    AM    INVOLVED    IN    DEVELOPING    STRATEGY,    REVIEWING    THE    FACTS    AND NEGOTIATING WITH DISTRICT ATTORNEYS FOR EACH CLIENT’S CASE. I PERSONALLY SELECT MY ASSOCIATE ATTORNEYS AND PAINSTAKINGLY TRAIN EACH ONE MYSELF. JUST   MEETING   ME   ONCE   WILL   HELP   YOU   UNDERSTAND   HOW   THAT   HAS   MADE   ME   THE   UNIQUE   AND   HIGHLY DESIRED LAWYER MY CLIENTS WRITE ABOUT.
