Manuel established a law firm in his hometown of Tayabas where he made an income of $500 per month. He was not an ordinary lawyer as he chose to run his trade much like Robinhood. He charged the rich exorbitantly for his
services while the poor benefited from his services pro bono. Good luck finding such a lawyer in our times! In a baffling move, he left his law firm to go and become a prosecutor, a job that earned him $ 75 per month. Again, that is not what your everyday lawyer would do. But we have already established that he was no ordinary person. His benevolence made him popular across The Philippines.
