Ronak Patel is a cunning tactician and innovative problem solver capable of deftly navigating thorny and novel legal issues in high stakes disputes.
A California-licensed attorney with nearly a decade of experience, Ronak has a track record of success in representing clients in complicated and high stakes disputes before state courts, federal courts, alternative dispute resolution fora, and administrative tribunals. As one of his former employers once remarked, Ronak has the “rare ability to approach complex and even novel subjects, master them, and then effectively use that mastery to advance and protect his clients’ interests.” Ronak credits this ability to his incisive analytical skills, efficient research capabilities, and, above all, his cogent writing style, which frequently earns the praise of not only his employers and colleagues but even of opposing counsel.
Before entering private practice, Ronak worked in the chambers of a federal judge on a full-time basis, drafting substantive orders and bench memoranda. Ronak also has experience working in the chambers of a superior court judge, with an emphasis on preparing the judge for his law and motion calendar.

Notably, a major news organization relied on Ronak’s scholarship in a high-profile federal case in the Southern District of New York. Ronak has also been interviewed in popular publications, where he has opined on cutting edge legal issues.
Ronak earned his juris doctor with distinction from the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law. At McGeorge, Ronak sat on the board of editors of the school’s flagship law review, earned multiple scholarships, and won other awards.
