“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.”
Mac Cabal blends a background in big business with significant experience in construction litigation and commercial collections. He has successfully recovered millions of dollars on behalf of sureties, 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 denim business, he understands what drives the goals of many of his clients.
However, Mac is not simply a litigator, he is an experienced trial attorney. Having tried and arbitrated as many cases as he has, Mac has the skill, knowledge, and expertise necessary to navigate the rough waters of trial practice. Beyond his trial experience, Mac also brings appellate level experience with published cases, even going as far as petitioning the California Supreme Court.
Mac comes to Lanak & Hanna with a record of high academic achievement. He graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Business Management and obtained a full tuition scholarship at Whittier Law School, where he finished in the top 5% of his class.
