Instead of a traditional testimonial party for retired senior associate justice Antonio Carpio, Villaraza & Angangco (V&A Law), under the leadership of chairman and CEO lawyer Arthur “Pancho” Villaraza and senior partner lawyer Raoul Angangco, decided for the more unconventional but fun route of “roasting” the celebrant. 
A roast is a lot like a toast, except it pokes fun at the honoree, all in the spirit of love and lightheartedness. 
Held at V&A Law Building in Bonifacio Global City, the guests enjoyed a delectable feast and free-fl owing drinks as well as the tributes for a man who has excellently served the country for two decades. A staunch defender of the nation’s maritime claims, the former justice is known for upholding the rule of law and for his many years of service to his countrymen. Many happy returns!
