Raue also provided research and motion writing support on niche areas of law, such as water law, fishery management, equestrian law and various other unique topics.

He also spent two years as a law student clerk and post bar clerk with Fredrickson, Mazeika & Grant prior to being an associate.

A native of South Bay, Raue briefly left San Diego to attend the University of California Santa Barbara, where he received a B.A. in law and society. During his junior year, he studied abroad at the University of Leiden Law School in the Netherlands along with attorneys from around the globe. After he completed his undergraduate studies, he taught English in the Krabi province of Thailand.
