He was the grandson by paternal side of Lorenzo Gabaldón and Luisa Pérez, and by maternal side of Cosme González and Bárbara Mendoza.[2]

He attended the public schools in Tebar, Spain,[1] which was his father's hometown.[3] He studied law in the Universidad Central, in Madrid, Spain and graduated from the University of Santo Tomas in Manila, Philippine Islands. He practiced law from 1903 to 1906.[1]

He was governor of the Province of Nueva Ecija in 1906 and 1912–1916. He was a member of the Philippine Assembly from 1907 to 1912. He served as governor of Nueva Ecija from 1912 to 1916. He later served in the Philippine Senate between 1916 and 1919.
