Areas of Practice Criminal Defense

Michelle Mabugat, a true Los Angeles native, graduated with honors from the University of California, Los Angeles, before receiving her juris doctorate from the University of Southern California Gould School of Law. Drawn to the world of criminal law from an early stage of her education, Ms. Mabugat began working with Philip Cohen while in law school, and ultimately received clerkships with both the California Court of Appeal and the Los Angeles Public Defender’s Office. Her clerkship at the Public Defender’s Office was highlighted by her successful challenge to a life sentence for a prison inmate sentenced under California’s strict Three Strikes Law – a rare achievement accomplished by very few.

Following her law school career, Ms. Mabugat focused her practice and her passion exclusively in the area of criminal defense and, through commitment and tutelage, developed her legal skills in the areas of pre-trial case preparation, motion work and trials. Starting with a foundation built on legal analysis and writing skills, Ms. Mabugat has excelled as a client advocate, proving herself to be both instrumental and invaluable to the firm’s success in motion work and trial issues, while also establishing her own courtroom style and strength of persuasion. Even as a young attorney, Ms. Mabugat has found tremendous success in preparing, arguing, and winning, numerous suppression issues, motions to dismiss, and requests for post-conviction relief. She has handled a wide variety of matters ranging from theft, drug possession and major narcotics offenses, to sex crimes, murder, and complex white collar prosecutions at both the state and federal level.

Outside the practice of law, Ms. Mabugat enjoys traveling, spending time with her dog, and playing in her local basketball league.
