President's Message

Greetings! It is with great honor and privilege to be chosen as the 58th President of the Philippine Bar Association. I share with great pride and joy this momentous occasion brings to the community and the people whom we aspire to faithfully serve.

Throughout the years, the Philippine Bar Association has remained steadfast in upholding the Rule of Law. Decades of service epitomize the Association’s unyielding devotion to what is righteous and just.


Justice and power must be brought together, so that whatever is just may be powerful, and whatever is powerful may be just.

Blaise Pascal
