Paul obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in English from California State University Fullerton in 2001 and his Juris Doctor from the University of La Verne College of Law in 2014. He excelled in school where he was on the Dean’s List and CALI Awards for Excellence in Legal Analysis and Writing, Professional Responsibility, and the Constitutional Law Writing Seminar. During law school, he served as a law clerk for both the Honorable Craig J. Mitchell of the Los Angeles Superior Court and a non-profit organization. After passing the bar exam in 2014, he worked for three years as In-House Counsel for a mental health care provider.
A desire to help others was instilled in Paul from an early age as his father has been with the Los Angeles Police Department for over thirty years. Seeing his father’s dedication and sacrifice inspired Paul to do what he could to help his community. Paul specifically enjoys helping injured victims because he understands how daunting of a process it can be for people who are already struggling to deal with the traumatic experience they endured. Paul wants to help guide these victims and zealously represent them so that they can obtain the relief they need to continue enjoying their life as they did before their injuries.
What Paul enjoys most about being a personal injury attorney is the feeling he gets when he has succeeded in helping someone. He feels that there is no beer feeling than when one of our clients tells us that they are grateful for having chosen us because we made them feel like family and exceeded their expectations. Paul’s favorite part about working for Case Barnett Law is the culture Case and Nicole Barnett have brought to the law firm. He feels that they understand the vital role we play in helping others, and they lead by example, whether it be by providing employees with the tools necessary to diligently represent our clients or by treating our clients like family. They believe that we need to do whatever is needed to take our clients by the hand and guide them through this difficult and intimidating process, and they have succeeded in creating a culture at our firm that demonstrates that belief.
Paul enjoys reading about legal topics that pertain to personal injury because he believes the learning process never stops and there is also something new and important to research. When he’s not working, he enjoys spending weekends with his wife and children at the beach, movies, or Disneyland. He also thoroughly enjoys reading, listening to music, watching movies, and exercising outside.
