Theodorick K. Ayungo or TKA as he is called in the legal circle, dreamt of becoming a lawyer and ultimately a judge since he was a kid. His dream was realized when he was appointed as the Presiding Judge of the Municipal Trial Court of Nampicuan, Nueva Ecija. Before his appointment in the bench, he served as an Associate Prosecutor in the City of Cabanatuan.
He finished his Bachelor of Philosophy and Bachelor of Laws in Saint Louis University Baguio. While waiting for the Bar, he worked as a Legal Analyst in a legal outsourcing company based in Ayala Avenue, Makati City.Upon passing the Bar, he became an Associate of Rodrigo Berenguer and Guno Law Firm (RBG). Working with RBG greatly propelled his growth as a lawyer. He also worked as a Business Analyst in an IT Company where he met brilliant minds in the IT world.
TKA believes that the greatest challenge in achieving a dream is keeping the dream alive and not losing one’s soul. Many employ underhanded shortcuts in achieving their dreams only to lose their souls in the process. This is also one of the reasons why he wrote this book— to help those who want to practice law and do it with excellence and integrity.
He loves the academe. He was a former Law Professor at Araullo University and presently a Lecturer at the College of Business and Accountancy of Wesleyan University Philippines.
Outside the legal circle, he is a member of the Light of Jesus Family. He completed the Light of Jesus School of Leadership Course and serves as one of the leaders of the Feast North Luzon.
TKA lives in Cabanatuan City with his beautiful wife Joyce and lovely daughter Kyna.
