I was born and raised in Fresno, California. My family’s farmworker background has instilled in me a strong sense of hard work and helping those in need. I personally meet with all my clients, and welcome existing clients to schedule appointments to meet with me to discuss the status of their case.
After completing my Bachelor’s Degree at the University of California, Davis, I returned to the Central Valley in 2002 to attend San Joaquin College of Law. Since 2007, I have been actively involved with the Central Valley La Raza Lawyers Association, and was the 2010 LRLA President. I have served on the Central Valley La Raza Lawyers Association’s Executive Board for the last 5 years.
Through my involvement with La Raza Lawyers Association, I became a volunteer attorney for Central California Legal Services’ Project First Step, providing legal representation to victims of domestic violence. In 2011, I joined the board of California Rural Legal Assistance, a nonprofit legal services program that strives for legal justice and human rights for California’s rural poor. My father and former law partner, Frank Ramirez, is a former CRLA attorney. I grew up hearing about the cases he worked on while at CRLA, and the impact they had on improving the working conditions for farmworkers. This is the reason I wanted to be an attorney at an early age.
