One of the most well-loved legal minds in the Philippines, lawyer Manuel “Lolong” Lazaro, recently celebrated his birthday at the Grand Ballroom of Okada Manila in Parañaque City.

The elegant party was hosted by Lolong’s lovely wife Rose and their daughters Apple Lazaro-Villadolid, Menju Lazaro-Castillo and lawyer Michelle Lazaro.

Lolong’s friends from the political, business, social and diplomatic sectors were present to celebrate with the former Court of Appeals justice.
