My sister was Ms. Ramos's client for her Family Law Case, fighting for both primary custody and child support. I was very apprehensive because my sister's previous lawyer was not great, and we hired on Ms. Ramos very late in the case. This did not hinder us, though, as I thought it would. Ramos took in lots of information in very little time, and although my sister (whom is forgetful) forget to give important information at times, Ramos worked very well at highlighting the little information my sister provided, and also the info we gave her very last minute! That alone was AMAZING! During trial, I must say I was fearful when she wasn't objecting the opposing party, but it was all apart of Ramos's technique! She was able to dig out information that we weren't even aware of, that really gave my case the upper hand! Her style of law is very unique and she appears very soft and subtle, but she is a fighter and wins. She is understanding and caring, definitely passionate about family law! If she could win our case in a matter of about 3 months with LOADS of information, imagine what she could for yours!

When I was referred to Mary Ramos (and her staff) I was in big trouble. My wife filed false paperwork stating there was abuse in our marriage and I was about to lose everything. A lawyer friend was helping me, but the case was over his head, and he was completely honest, and he said if I didnt respond quickly I would lose everything, not only my house, but visitation with my 2 daughters. He told me I needed to call Mary Ramos & Associates, that it was my only chance. The day that Mary Ramos took over the case, everything turned around, they really took control and I felt for the first time my side of the divorce would be heard.
In the end Mary Ramos and her staff (Jessica was amazing) managed to save me. My house sold yesterday, one year after my divorce, and I actually received 50% of the sale and $13,000 that was due to me in bills from the marriage. NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT MARY RAMOS & ASSOCIATES. I would refer them to anyone who needs a fighter in their corner, they never gave up on me, and I promise you I had made a lot of mistakes, and my case was never an easy one.

I have to say that using Ms. Ramos’ services was the best decision I made when it came to my custody case. I was fighting an uphill custody batter against my step-daughter’s biological father. My wife wasn’t available to fight for custody and as a step-dad I didn’t expect to win primary of my step-daughter, but Mary and her team made it happen. We had to go through a five day jury trial and the results were exceptional. I had so many factors playing against me, but Mary handled it extremely well. She and her staff are no quitters and do whatever necessary to make things happen. Her staff always kept me well informed, they made things easy for me, and really catered to my individual needs. I felt safe with them handling my case. I was impressed with her services, I would definitely use her again and recommend her to anybody who needs a family law attorney, especially fathers.

My decision to use the Ramos Law Firm turned into one of the best life decisions I have made. I am extremely happy with the level of personalized service given to me at a time when I upset, confused, and felt all alone. I did not know what to do our how to choose an attorney right for me. After filtering through search engines on the internet and taking the time to endure seven prior consults with different legal firms, I found the Ramos Law Firm. I met with Mary, and walked out of there with a good level of comfort and a very strong sense of security.
Mary utilized her team well to ensure my legal fees did not get out of hand, and the Ramos Law Firm did an excellent job with communications throughout my divorce as my questions and emails were answered same day. Although Mary’s staff did most of the daily legwork, it was Mary who personally sat by my side for every court appearance which was a very comforting feeling. Mary had a strong presence in both the family court as well as with the mediators firm.
I have referred a close personal friend to Mary so he can modify his visitation, and a female co-worker who is struggling with a pending divorce. I am confident they will both be pleased with the results Mary and her legal team will provide. If you are in a rough situation, and you have not decided on which law firm you plan to use then do yourself a favor and go sit down and have an initial consult with Mary, and you will immediately understand how the right attorney can make the difference. A special Thanks to Mary and the Ramos Law Firm Staff, as for you Good Luck and Best Regards with your search for a great attorney. Rick C - Houston TX

Mary impressed me with her knowledge of Texas Family Law, without even having to reference the book during the initial consult. She even know the law code and section as we were discussing my case. You want someone who knows the law to the bone, especially if you are a father in Texas. She picked apart my ex spouse's attorney's proposal and found all kinds of errors and missing rights that I have as a father. Had I signed that proposal with out an attorney, I would definitely been screwed for many years. I am very happy that I hired her to represent me. Mary and her team are cost conscious and will use every effort to keep your costs low. She will offer her opinions and advice, but she does know that you are the boss in the end. Up front Mary and her team will tell you that the best form of communication with them is by email. And it is. It may seem like a disconnect from an actual person, but trust me, they are very polite and responsive. You have to understand that you are not the firms only client, and you will need to be patient during the process. Going into it, I thought this would be a very quick case. It was not. A divorce may start off amicably, but it can get ugly very quickly. The best bet you have is to make sure you provide this firm with every bit of information you can, by being honest in that information, and by meeting your deadlines. Your attorney can only best represent you when they have your full cooperation. Depending on the matter or question, you will usually get a response within an hour or a day or two with this firm. Expect a back and forth between your attorney and your spouses attorney. You will be informed of every exchange that occurs between Mary and opposing counsel. Every case is different, not all will settle the exact same way. Mine took letting Mary handle my ex's attorney, and me finally being able to reason with my spouse. Divorce is very emotional, and many people act on their emotions, and not logic. Especially when a divorce involves children. I highly recommend Mary and her team. It doesn't hurt to at least get a consultation.

I used Mrs. Ramos in a divorce,cps, and child custody case. From the first time I met with her she was compassionate, informative, and on top of her game. The whole office staff does whatever they can to work with you and make a terrible situation as easy as possible. My process lasted almost a year and in this time frame I got a protective order, prosecuted my ex, had the cps closed, got full custody of my beautiful daughter, and my divorce was finalized. My 6 year old says Mary saved our lives. I now have a brand new life with my daughter and for the first time we both feel safe and content. Thank you Mary and Staff!!!

She is in control will make sure your case is up to date, thou some of her support (employees ) ate somewhat non responsive to your questions and any hard copy of yourcase development.
You may have to be patient and make several calls to obtain any imformation .
Ido recommend Ms. Ramos she know-all as far as what the law is concern

Every attorney I talked to said it was a lost case for me. She got what I needed done.

Mary handled my child support case. I was using the OAG, but they took for ever and couldn't get my ex served. So I contacted Mary. She saw me the same day that I called. I signed contract, did the requested paperwork, and in like two weeks I had my hearing set and my ex was served. She told me up front that for all questions I should email and I was always quick to get a response that way. If not by her, then her staff would update me. She has two staff members, both named Christina, so that was helpful. She does bill for everything, but its all in her contract so there was no hidden surprised. But, she was a good attorney. She came to Court, not on time, but that was understandable because she had other cases set that day, anyway, she showed up, was prepared, and had all her calculations done. She talks fast, but gets the job done. She got my ex to agree to the amount of support that she had calculated based on the financial info she received from both of us. Everything else fell into place and she had our final orders drafted and emailed to us within days. Loved the fast pace and she even worked with me on payment plan for her services. I would use her again. I told her I would see her in 3 years for my child support review.

I used Ms. Ramos for a paternity suit and she was great. I didn't get all the call backs I wanted, but I always was kept in the loop via email. She is a busy woman, but she is great at what she does.
