Who is JCC?

      JCC are my initials, Jose Chavez Camano is my name.  I was born in Sagnay, Camarines Sur, to Pedro and Anita Camano.  I was raised poor and grew up poor.  I studied at the University of the Philippines college of law (1974-1978),  through the help of so many good souls. 113

      As a teenager I worked part-time as a news reporter of Bicol Mail, a local weekly  in Naga City. As a lawyer I worked as one of the in-house counsel of Technology Resource Center, (TRC) for more than  2 years and as a trial attorney for 19 years after my short stay with TRC.

       I migrated to the US in  2000 to join my wife and my youngest daughter, while leaving behind my two elder children to finish their college in UP. They were in their last year of college. I would not uproot my kids from a known good university and enroll them to an unknown U.S. university. The cost also militates against the transfer.

      It was a twin-reason of filial devotion and pursuit for inner peace that made my decision  to leave my  law practice of 22 years a lot easier.   About 5 years after I left, the Supreme Court had suspended me from the practice of law for one year.  This case was filed way back in 1998, but it took the IBP 6 years before it makes a finding that I should be suspended for misconduct.   I was livid about this recommendation/finding because  I was not able to dispute it while I was around.  I  put to task the  Supreme Court for coming up with the resolution which I consider malicious and a pure hogwash.  After this case,  I wrote a book  “Censuring Back the Supreme Court”  to fight this scurrilous libel off.  I consider the Supreme Court to have lost its moral authority  to censure lower court judges and trial lawyers because it is more corrupt than the latter two groups of the legal profession, and there’s the rub.

        In hindsight, I  thought that if have not left,  I could  have maneuvered in the corridors of power to fight against this insidious  “pillory”, but I could have not written this book.

      If you have the time please.. could you just enlighten me why the
      Filipinos for the most part, hate Americans…more then the Japanese.??
      Noticed you spent some time on Maui recently… was born and raised there.. before serving time in the Army. You should have gone there 50 years ago.. that would have been the “real” Maui,

        American foreign policy maybe but not against the American people. Filipinos hate all the invaders, Spaniards, Americans, the Japanese and now the Chinese because of the tension in the Scarborough Shoal.

        Americans also hate their fellow Americans who send their children to foreign wars, debauched their own economy to bailout failing business giants and lied to their own people.

        There are two types of Americans, the imperialists and the liberals. Filipinos were upset against the American imperialists only. The liberals in the U.S., at the turn of the century won and recognized the right of the Filipinos for self-government and they left the islands. Filipinos were grateful to the Americans who understood the yearning and aspirations of the Filipinos.

        It is not entirely correct to say that the Filipinos hate the Americans. Only those Americans who tried to subjugate the free people that the Filipinos were up against.

    Its governance, clean and effective, that is the prescription for getting the country out of this centuries-old morass.

    Not only for the Philippines but for other countries as well. In Africa for instance – Somalia, Kenya, etc.

    How to realize that?

  24. Hi Mr. Chavez Camano,

    I have to comment here as the contact form at Filipino Voices does not allow to include any web addresses.

    It’s nice to see that my 1986-photo of Mother Teresa is of use for your articles at and at
    However, your current way of use without any author credit violates my copyright in this photo, that was shot by me and published by me on Wikimedia-Commons (URL: under a Creative-Commons BY-SA license that requires attribution of the author (my Wikimedia-username Túrelio) and mentioning of the license terms for any legal use. (Even fair-use under US law requires crediting author and source.)
    I therefore ask that you add a proper line of credit (Photo: Túrelio on Wikimedia-Commons, CC-BY-SA) under or near the photo on both sites, a.s.a.p.



  25. jcc
    June 30, 2010

    Mr. Turelio, when you put a photo in a public forum such as Wikipedia, the photo becomes a public property and I don’t see your authorship of the photo to which proper accreditation could be made. I removed the photo of Mother Teresa and replaced it with her youtube video if that would address your concern.

    As regards the same photo appearing in Filipino Voices, you may call the attention of Nick the owner of the blog because as of now, I do not participate in that blog anymore. But would you deny countless faithfuls the opportunity to look at a magnifient still photo you have captured of the most revered icon simply on issue of absence of accreditation?

    Hello, atty jcc. This is Rochie from raissa’s blog. I have a few minutes to spend before hitting the covers so i decided to pay you a visit. I have a lot of catching up to do here and i hope to do it asap. I would have answered your reply to my post pero nakakahiya naman kay Raissa. Yes, my hands are full now that i have two grandkids, but no regrets. They offer me a whole new, wonderful world. Anyway, i’m sure i will be here more often since i found so many interesting things in your blog. For one, i gathered that you were at UP in the mid 70’s. I graduated there in 75. My husband is a lawyer too, but he’s not into litigation. Anyway, kudos to you for turning out very informative pieces here andin raissa’s blog, too.
