Abe joined the firm on January 2018 and currently specializes in the areas of criminal and civil litigation, family law, political law and labor law.
He holds a degree in Philosophy and Human Resource Development from the San Beda University and thereafter earned his law degree from the San Beda University – Alabang School of Law where he held the position of External Vice-President of its Legal Aid Center.
Abe entered law school as a working student employed in the Financial Sector of the Business Process Outsourcing Industry. Prior to law school, he worked for JP Morgan Chase and Co. and Thomson Reuters, Ltd. He was also a Migrations Specialist in Oracle Corporation when he entered law school but found his career with said company short-lived when he soon decided to go full-time in his academics.
Abe started his legal career with the Firm as an underbar associate until he hurdled the Philippine Bar Examinations in 2017. Even before he officially entered the legal profession, he was being trained to be consistently immersed in heavy litigation work, one that best harnesses his professional knowledge and skills until today.
Outside lawyering, Abe is a practicing Martial Artist and a fighter. For several times, he was a champion in the National and Pan Asia-Pacific International Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Federation Open from 2013-2017 until he finally graduated from law school and studied for the Bar Examinations. He also holds gold medals in the Wrestling Association of the Philippines National Championships and currently trains for a career in Mixed Martial Arts. He now teaches his own team in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and trains with Team Fist Gym, Sprawl and Badgers under the Kamphuis-Fabricio camp. He is also skilled in knife fighting and empty hand combat and trains under the Abenir-Kalis Defense System.
