I was in court this morning listening to older lawyers talk about local history. While listening to them talk it occurred to me that it would be sad if no one wrote anything about the great lawyers of Bacolod City (or of Negros Occidental). So earlier this afternoon I went to the office of Atty. Adoniram Pamplona (one of our elder lawyers here in Bacolod; he’s now in his late sixties) and asked for a few names. Here are the names he came up with:
1. Don Agustin Seva
2. M.O. Soriano
3. Eduardo Arboledo (and his sons, Eduardo Arboledo, Jr. and Antonio Arboledo)
I have never heard of these names before and it would be a pity if they were to be lost to posterity. So I think I have got myself a project to work on. It may be that some people reading this blog might just happen to know these guys.
