About Teresita

Learn Teresita’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Education
    Tere represents children with special needs and their families, as well as students who have faced bullying, harassment, or civil rights violations in school.

  2. Social Security & Disability
    Ramos Law has extensive experience helping disabled individuals get the benefits they are entitled to. Our disability practice can help when your insurance company won't.

  3. Civil rights
    Federal law states that everyone, regardless of race, color, or national origin, must have equal access and opportunities. If you have been discriminated against, we can help.

We understand what it means to have a child with a disability. That’s why we’re dedicated to helping all children get the education they deserve.


The mother of two daughters, one with autism, Ms. Ramos has firsthand experience with the struggles families face in getting education services. Recognizing the lack of help available for non–English-speaking families, she has focused on serving students from Latino and other underserved communities.


Ms. Ramos has worked with disability advocates from around the world. Originally from Puerto Rico, after finishing her master’s degree in diplomacy from Georgetown University in Washington, DC, she lived in China, Brazil, Peru, Italy, and France and traveled to more than 100 countries. She understands what it’s like to live in a new culture, and is committed to helping clients overcome language barriers to get the services they need.

Amazing resource for families
We cannot say enough about the support that Tere Ramos provides to families of children with special needs. From the first phone call, we knew that not only would Tere guide us smoothly along the process, but she truly cared about helping our daughter get the services she needed. Tere communicates with both families and other professionals effectively and in a very timely manner, and she uses her negotiating skills to allow the parties to reach agreement in the best interest of the student. We are so grateful to have Tere’s guidance, encouragement, and legal knowledge supporting our family.
