Ronald A. Cabanayan

About Me

I was born and raised in San Jose. I served with the California Army National Guard and the US Navy Reserve where I eventually retired after 26 total years.

I initially worked in the trades as a plumber and HVAC mechanic. I have worked in the field as well as in the sales office. I decided to return to school and graduated from the University of Phoenix with a BS in Business/Marketing. I then earned his law degree from Lincoln Law School of San Jose.

My legal experience includes estate planning, personal injury, DUI, domestic violence, family law, real estate law, and immigration. I teach legal courses and tutor at Lincoln Law School and Evergreen Valley College.

I enjoy cooking because I like to eat. I love traveling with my family and spending my free time with them. I also like to collect vintage signs and petroliana (gas and oil stuff).
