Ronald W. Ramirez

Attorney at Law


Ronald W. Ramirez  

Few lawyers understand the specific challenges present in brain injury litigation better than Ron Ramirez. Since entering private practice in the early 1980s, Ramirez has developed a focus on cases involving brain and head trauma, with his many victories earning him a reputation as a preeminent lawyer in the field.

Most recently, Ramirez achieved a $6.8 million jury verdict—one of the top 25 verdicts in New York for 2014 as reported by VerdictSearch—for a student who fell down a stairway when a balustrade collapsed. To prove his client had in fact suffered a serious brain injury, Ramirez called upon eight medical experts during the trial—a number that he says was essential to the case’s success, as the experts’ different analyses all pointed to the same head injury.

“Often in cases where the brain injury seems invisible and the victim appears ‘normal,’ nobody believes the person was actually hurt,” Ramirez says. “Friends and family don’t understand the severity of the injury, and even clients themselves might be confused about the symptoms they’re experiencing. So the most satisfying part of my practice is helping clients identify these undetected injuries and then ensuring that their claims are not minimized or denied.”

In addition to his knowledge of brain injuries, Ramirez, who started out as a trial attorney for the Legal Aid Society of New York, brings to his practice years of courtroom experience. He has tried hundreds of cases in both state and federal courts, and as a solo practitioner, he handles all aspects of these cases, providing individual service to each client.

“Brain injury cases are complex and challenging, and therefore require a deep understanding of both neuroscience and the client’s ability to endure the litigation in order to be successful,” Ramirez notes. “By combining cutting-edge technology and extensive resources with passionate, knowledgeable representation, we have been able to secure life-changing results for our clients.”
