About Ricky S. Shah

In 2003, Mr. Shah graduated from UCLA with an applied math degree in financial theory. He first used these skills as a paralegal for a mid-sized plaintiff’s class action firm in Century City. From there, he worked in personal injury and other business litigation until going to USC’s Gould School of Law. Mr. Shah has since then worked on a variety of matters in a number of practices including insurance defense, labor and employment, and landlord-tenant matters.
Mr. Shah grew up in the thriving family business and from a young age learned the ins and outs of successful entrepreneurship.

Mr. Shah is particularly active in the South Asian Bar Association of Southern California but he is President-Elect and a founding member of the Asian Pacific American Lawyers of the Inland Empire (APALIE). While waiting for his bar results, he helped plan and organize the 2010 North American South Asian Bar Association (NASABA) conference in Los Angeles.

Following that, he remained an active member of the SABA board but in 2012, he became one of the founding members of the Asian Pacific American Lawyers of the Inland Empire (APALIE), the first Asian-American bar association to represent San Bernardino and Riverside counties. Mr. Shah is the chairman for APALIE’s judiciary committee and will be the President-Elect of APALIE in 2015.
