Michael A. Caves


Michael Caves was born and raised in the central valley, where he has lived all his life, aside from the five years he spent on active duty in the Army and three years of law school. Michael has been a prosecutor at the Kern County District Attorney’s office since 2007, and has been the President of the Kern County Prosecutor’s Association since 2016. Michael has been active with the Multicultural Bar Alliance, and has served as a member of the board of directors for CSUB’s Center for Social Justice since its creation in 2017. Michael has taught law and politics courses at CSUB since 2016, and has previously served as the chair of the Kern County human relations commission and the Bakersfield civil service commission, as a member of the KCBA court liaison committee, and as co-chair of Equal Justice Society (University of San Francisco Law chapter). Michael is married to an Emergency Room nurse, and is a proud father of three. Michael’s wife has put up with him for over twenty years, and she may be the most patient person in the world.
Michael would like to congratulate KCBA President Alekxia Torres Stallings for her extraordinary achievement, which reflects her tireless work in the legal community.
