Sarbdeep Atwal studied Finance and Risk Management at the California State University of Sacramento.
His undergraduate educational pursuits were always in conjunction with the managing of the family farming business. By means of these practical and real world business experiences he became interested in acquiring a legal degree. Initially, his aim was to generate a competent understanding of the law to help promote efficient and aggressive business practices within the family business. This desire became broader in scope as he matured; he embraced the passion he'd always had when it came to helping others and the realization of the value inherent in providing legal awareness and insight to those with specific legal needs.
Sarbdeep's growing interests in law and real life experiences led him to pursue his Juris Doctorate at Trinity Law School; the California Campus and satellite location of Trinity International University (Deerfield IL). Trinity Law School Is located in the heart of Orange County, California.
During the course of his studies in law, he had the unique opportunity of partaking in a study abroad program in the beautiful city of Strasbourg; the capital and principal city of the Alsace region in eastern France. During this time abroad, he actively explored International Human Rights Law within the United Nations collective of Eastern Countries; starting from Africa and stretching all the way to South America.
He invested time in understanding the cultural impunities that helped form certain types of Human Rights legislation (immortalized in treaties and protocols forming international law) such as the Geneva Convention, which are universally enforced today.
He also had the unique opportunity to take part in proceedings within the European Union. Such exposure aided in gaining a universal understanding of Human Rights and broadening his cultural and legal experience.
The end result is that it has developed his passion, which in a practical evolution had come to embody issues surrounding Immigration Law and Criminal Law and the multitude of legal obstacles arising from their practice and enforcement.
He was admitted to the California Bar in June 2010. Thereafter, he continued to work for his family business; heavily involved in daily operations but with the primary task of tending to the companies legal needs. His practice involved the drafting of various contracts including Leasehold agreements, purchase agreements, contracts between buyers and sellers, easement and boundary line disputes. He also catered to several of the company employees needs on a pro bono basis. He helped assist in various immigration issues such as work type visas, adjustment of status and naturalization proceedings and Social Security and Disability hearings.
Motivated to keep cultivating a diverse experience in law, Sarbdeep decided to expand his Legal background in Bankruptcy and Business Law. He began work at a Bankruptcy Firm which focused heavily on Chapter 7 Bankruptcies and Debt Relief. He worked aggressively through Client Intake, petition filing, 341 hearings between Trustee and Creditors, to final Discharge. Thereafter, he was offered a unique opportunity to work with a very prominent and successful Criminal Defense and Personal Injury Attorney.
Developing a passion for Criminal Law began as far back as the first days of Law School. When given the opportunity to work in a Criminal Defense firm, he wholeheartedly accepted. There, he worked on all parts of the Criminal Process: from Client intake, Arraignment, Pretrial hearings to Preliminary Hearings and Trial proceedings. He also worked specifically in Drunk Driving Defense including all parts of the DMV process. Thereafter, he decided to serve the local legal needs of Yuba Sutter Counties and the greater Sacramento Valley and opened his own practice in Yuba City, California, specializing in Drunk Driving Defense. Sarbdeep speaks fluent Punjabi and conversational Spanish to help serve those with a language barrier.
Sarbdeep specializes in Criminal Defense, DMV hearings, Social Security and Disability, and Real Estate Issues.
