CJ Peralta rallies lawyers and judges to work hard to always uphold integrity stressing that: “True success does not come overnight. One has to work hard for it. I did. I can honestly say that I worked hard for who and where I am today. Above all, in whatever you do, never ever compromise your integrity.” The Chief Justice was the guest of honor and keynote speaker during the testimonial dinner held by the Integrated Bar of the Philippines-Ilocos Norte chapter in honor of the Ilocanos who passed the 2019 Bar Examinations, as well as newly-appointed judges, on January 15, 2021.
