Mac W. Cabal blends a background in big business with substantial experience in construction litigation and commercial collections. For well over a decade and handling hundreds of cases, Mr. Cabal has successfully recovered tens of millions of dollars on behalf of contractors, suppliers, and other commercial enterprises. And, having worked as an executive for two of the largest retail companies in the country, where he managed a multi-million dollar business, he understands what drives the goals of many of his clients.
However, Mr. Cabal is not simply a litigator, he is an experienced trial attorney. Having tried and arbitrated as many cases as he has, Mr. Cabal has the skill, knowledge, and expertise necessary to navigate the rough waters of trial practice. Beyond his considerable trial practice, Mr. Cabal also brings appellate level experience to the table with several published cases, even going as far as petitioning the California Supreme Court, three times.
Mr. Cabal’s legal expertise and background arises from a record of high academic achievement. He graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science degree and obtained a full tuition scholarship at Whittier Law School, where he finished in the top 5% of his class. As early as college, Mr. Cabal’s oral advocacy skills were on display as he finished third in the annual Ivy League Mock Trial completion besting other Ivy League Schools including Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, Colombia, University of Pennsylvania, and Brown. While in law school, Mr. Cabal won multiple CALI awards for receiving the highest grade in his class. And during law school, Mr. Cabal wrote for the Whittier Law Review where he became a published author. In addition, he worked as a District Attorney Summer Extern, where he participated in, and won, an oral advocacy competition against approximately 40 other externs from numerous notable Southern California law schools.
Mr. Cabal taught law as an adjunct professor at Concordia University in Irvine. He is a member of the Orange County Bar Association, where he served as Co-Chair of the Mentor-on-Demand Committee alongside the former President of the Orange County Bar Association, and he previously served on the Board of Directors for the Bar Association. He speaks fluent Spanish and is a CrossFit enthusiast.
What drives me as a lawyer is the desire to achieve results for my clients. Too often, lawyers get so wrapped up in the law they lose sight of the client’s overall goals.
