Things did not go easy for Roy. At first, it was tiring. His wife was even pregnant with their daughter who is now 4 years old.

He did not pass the 2014 bar exam despite having enrolled in a bar review center. The second time around, he decided to conduct the review on his own.

Just before his 27th birthday, Lawagan received one precious gift - his passing the bar exams.
