Al Nabor was born in Baler Aurora (formerly Quezon), Philippines. He is the eldest son of an Ilocano father from Bongabon, Nueva Ecija, and a Tagalog mother. He was a High School Valedictorian, but because his father passed away when he was twelve years old and with five brothers and sisters, his prospects of further education was dim.
Equipped with a strong belief in God and his dreams of becoming a lawyer some day, Al competed with other high school graduates in 1969 in a Scholarship Examination throughout the Philippines to poor but deserving students. He was one of two scholars chosen for the province of Quezon.
Al graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Far Eastern University, Manila, in 1974. After graduation, he was hired by the University of the East to teach History and Government in its High School Department. Al taught at U.E. during the day while he pursued further studies taking up Masters in Political Science in the University of the Philippines at night.
In 1976, he joined Zuellig Pharma Corporation where he worked for almost fifteen years mostly in the marketing field involving assignments in the different regions of the Philippines. He started as Medical Representative, promoted to Area Manager, to Product Manager, and Group Product Manager. In 1983, while working with Zuellig, Al started law school towards his life-long dream to become a lawyer.
He graduated at Arellano University Law School in 1987 and passed the Philippine Bar Examination in 1988. He was then transferred to the Legal Department of Zuellig Pharma Corporation where he retired in 1990. Al immigrated to America in 1990. He worked as a paralegal in the Law Offices of Terrence McGuire from 1991 to 1993. He worked at the Asian Pacific American Legal Center from 1993 to 1997.

Who We Are
The Law Offices of Adolfo Nabor traced its humble beginnings in 1997 when Al Nabor partnered with Ed Anciano and opened a law office in Los Angeles, California. Shortly thereafter, a new branch was also established in Carson, giving birth to The Law Offices of Anciano and Nabor.
After three fruitful years of partnership, Attorney Nabor and Attorney Anciano mutually agreed in pursuing a solo career in immigration practice: Attorney Nabor maintained the office in Los Angeles while Attorney Anciano retained the office in Carson, California.
In August 2001, Atty. Nabor established a new branch in West Covina, California. The office mostly handled Personal Injury cases. In May 2005, after four years of operations, the West Covina office was discontinued to centralize the processing of the law office's immigration and personal injury cases at the Los Angeles office. But due to popular demand for our superior legal services, the West Covina office to reopened to new clients in August 2018.
The main Los Angeles office address is now at 3325 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 303, Los Angeles, California 90010, while the West Covina office can be found at 640 Sunset Avenue, Suite 206, West Covina, CA 91790.
