About Richard

As a Marine Corps Veteran, I have been curtailed to lead. As a combat veteran I shared moments with other veterans that solidify the bilateral unspoken bond between us. After serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom I,II, and III, I joined the active duty unit Wounded Warrior Battalion West in both Camp Pendleton, California and Twenty-nine Palms, California respectfully. As an active duty Marine, I was assigned as a Section Leader (Mentor) . This position involved ensuring that every aspect of a wounded/ill/injured Marine’s life, (who was under my care) was monitored and cared for in preparation for their transition back into active duty status or discharge from service. These staffing meeting included pre adjudication of a Marine with a criminal disposition. This responsibility involved regular staffing with medical professionals, commanding officers, unit leadership, financial managers, and non-profit organizations. After being honorably discharged from the Marine Corps I achieved a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication from Arizona State University. My interest in the legal system attracted me to the Paralegal Certification Degree Program at Phoenix College. My education and experience have prepared me for a professional setting to offer my expertise for the assistance of my fellow veterans. I have been volunteering for the Phoenix Regional Veterans Hospital for the past two years. In conjunction with my volunteer work, I am currently interning with Attorney Nathan Foundas at the Phoenix Veterans Court. Concurrent with the Phoenix Veteran’s Court, I also intern with the Maricopa County Juvenile Court. In addition to the internship, I am offering research on current Arizona Revised Statutes in order to assist at risk and indigent youth in the juvenile corrections institution. My training and education has prepared me for the opportunity to serve as a Veteran Court Mentor and I would be grateful for the opportunity to offer my knowledge and experience in anyway that’s useful to my fellow veteran.
Gratefully,
Richard M. Cachola
