Ms. Ramos understands the complexities which can arise in family law matters. She often handles cases involving multifaceted custody issues and complex financial and property divisions.

Ms. Ramos has given presentations on domestic violence, restraining orders, paternity, and fundamentals of family law, registered domestic partnerships and elimination of bias in the legal profession.
