Impressive confidence and authentic legal representation
Without hesitation, I recommend Oscar Ramirez as a plaintiff attorney. I was referred to him by another great attorney in LA. From the minute we sat down in my initial meeting I felt at ease. From my perspective, one of the most difficult decisions I have ever had to make is to pursue legal actions against a previous employer. The decision to consult with an attorney was met with quite a bit of internal turmoil. However, when I left the meeting with Oscar I was at peace. He asked that I turn over those emotions and the stress to him and let him handle the case from that point on allowing me to begin the process of healing and rebuilding. Oscar proved to be an excellent scholar of law and drafted a strong letter of cause. His reference to relevant caselaw and specific causes of action immediately approved credibility and strength of my case. In the end Oscar was able to deliver a settlement that was equitable and allowed me to be made whole and get back to life. To some my feelings up- you want Oscar on your side because your day will not end well if he is on the other side of the table. I learned very quickly that he works best when he is allowed to do his job and not be consistently interrupted asking for updates on the case. From the minute we sat down and had a national meeting until we parted ways after the settlement was signed he remained a fervent champion of the law and has earned my profound respect for the manner in which he presents himself, his clients, and the legal system. Last, and worth mentioning- he is a skilled negotiator who utilizes an impressive confidence that is beneficial during ADR. Thank you Oscar.

Highly Recommend Employment Attorney
I retained Mr. Ramirez to negotiate a better severance agreement with my prior employer. He listened to my story, answered all of my questions, and developed a strategy that he shared with me. Mr. Ramirez kept me informed along the way and provided extremely effective representation and negotiated a monetary settlement 247% more than what was initially offered. He did a fantastic job. I highly recommend him to anyone.
