SGV tax director places 3rd in the 2011 bar exams

Tax director Cherry Liez Rafal-Roble placed 3rd in the November 2011 Philippine Bar examination. Humbled by her achievement, Cherry hopes to be able to inspire and support other SGV tax professionals who aspire to become lawyers. She shares her joy, saying, “I was content with merely passing and yet God has given me this wonderful gift, which I consider a sign that I can take on more responsibilities.”

Joining Cherry in the top 10 is SGV retired partner Rodolfo Aquino who finished at 10th place. There were 13 other tax professionals who successfully hurdled the exam: Senior Associates Thyrza Marbas, Josephine Joy Viray, Maria Feliza Amparo Christine Javier, Criscelyn Carayugan, Gayle Marie Hernando, Daphne Yu, Eva Christine Naparan, Crystal Mercado, Patricia Ann Escalona, Ariane Camille Sy, Edward Menor, Chris David Palarca, Jason Roland Gacayan and Juan Paulo Santos.
