About Practice Areas
How many lawyers do you know that are also engineers experienced in the oilfield? Most lawyers working in this field do not have any practical experience in the oil patch. They have learned about the oil business through other cases after becoming lawyers, and they don’t know the field like those who actually work in the industry. Attorney Ramirez has a degree in Petroleum Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin, and learned the oil patch, first hand, as an engineer for Mobil Oil in West Texas. When you have an Oil and Gas case, wouldn’t it be to your advantage to have a lawyer who also worked in the oilfield?
Oil and Gas cases come in many forms but they often involve technical issues that ultimately led to serious injuries or death. It is crucial that the client have in his corner a lawyer that not only knows the oilfield, but who is also an experienced, aggressive and successful trial lawyer. Expert testimony is the centerpiece of these cases, and there is a lot of trial strategy and maneuvering involved. There is too much at stake for the oilfield worker and his family to take a chance on any lawyer. Attorney Ramirez provides personalized attention to the details of all cases, and will work diligently with the client to obtain a successful outcome.
Oil and Gas work can also be as “simple” as negotiating terms for oil and gas leases or pipeline easements. Whatever the situation, Attorney Ramirez is able to provide aggressive and solid representation to maximize the interests of the client.
Serious physical injuries or death can deeply affect many areas of our lives including our ability to continue working. These injuries can result from many different areas, such as collisions with 18 wheelers or other vehicles, bad drugs, defective products, or from the negligence of others. The law cannot undo the injuries suffered, but it can seek to hold responsible the company or person who caused the injury. These cases come in many different forms and can require a lot of paperwork as well as expert testimony.
You may be entitled to compensation for the injuries suffered. Every case is different and a good lawyer can be very helpful in these situations.
Attorney Ramirez has worked in this field extensively since the time he began practicing law, and is intimately familiar with this area. Whether you are the victim of a defective product or bad drug, the wrongful death of someone dear to you, or were simply part of a harmless car accident, Attorney Ramirez can help.
Attorney Ramirez has worked both sides of criminal cases during his practice of law. He has successfully represented many individuals accused of all types of felonies and misdemeanors. He has also worked as a special prosecutor and has prosecuted individuals accused of different felonies. This experience in working both sides of these cases is an invaluable asset when working criminal cases.
The accused in every criminal case has the right to have his or her case decided by a jury. Attorney Ramirez has taken many criminal cases to jury trial and has been very successful. However, not all cases go to jury. Most accused persons elect to enter into a plea bargain with the prosecutor.
Generally, these types of cases require a detailed review of the evidence obtained by the State against the accused. When hired in criminal cases, Attorney Ramirez will review the State’s evidence with the accused, and afterwards the Pros and Cons of the case will be discussed. Once that has been done, Attorney Ramirez will visit with the prosecutor in the case to discuss the facts of the case as well as the applicable law. The accused at that point will have all the information he or she needs to make an informed decision about what to do with the case.
Family law cases are being filed today at a very rapid rate, and this area of law is probably the fastest growing in the nation. More and more people have either been directly involved in a family case or they know somebody who has. Because family cases deal with very emotional issues, these cases are generally highly stressful and can be very difficult on all involved.
These cases can take many forms, whether a divorce proceeding, a child custody suit, or just a modification of the amount of child support. Each case requires careful preparation because these issues are so personal and there is so much at stake. The outcome in one of these cases can change the lives of all family members for years to come.
These cases can also be very stressful on the children involved. They often feel caught in the middle between what they perceive as warring and angry parents, and they are usually unsure what to do or say. Minimizing the impact of the case on children is always a goal of Attorney Ramirez.
Attorney Ramirez has been deeply involved in this arena since 1993 and has extensive experience in most family law matters, including child custody suits, divorces, modifications, and adoptions. He has taken a large number of these to trial, some before judges and others before juries
Families with special needs children face enormous challenges in all aspects of life. They worry and fret about many things including medical care for their child, the child’s social bonding with friends and family, and the child’s future just to name a few. The last thing they should have to worry about is the education their child receives at school. Yet, many school districts try to educate special needs children using a template that simply does not fit the child’s specific needs.
The Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2007 (“IDEA”) is the law of the land. It is a federal statute which governs the education of all children with disabilities who qualify for its protections. It does not allow for a school district to “cubbyhole” a child into whatever services it has available. The law mandates that a specific and individual education plan be formulated to educate the disabled child based upon the specific and particular needs of that child. The plan must allow the child to receive a meaningful benefit from his education. In this way, the special needs child can begin learning the skills necessary to ultimately integrate into the social fabric of our world.
Sadly, however, most parents of special needs children are completely unaware of the protections afforded their child by federal law, and their children are simply pushed through the school system, often with little benefit. A good attorney seasoned in this field can provide excellent assistance in this area. Remember, if you don’t stand up and fight for your child…no one else will!
Attorney Ramirez has served as a Special Education Hearing Officer and Mediator handling special education cases for the State of Texas from 2004 – 2010.

(To read some of Attorney Ramirez’s decisions, please refer to the Texas Education Agency’s website and click on the “Due Process Hearing Decisions” link for whichever year you like.) He has been representing parents in this area since 2010.
Attorney Ramirez is, and has been, a trial lawyer since 1993, and has extensive experience trying cases before judges and juries. This trial experience coupled with his background in special education law makes Attorney Ramirez uniquely qualified to effectively and aggressively handle special education cases. No matter the disability of your child, Attorney Ramirez can help obtain the education your child needs and deserves.
Obviously, all legal cases cost money, and these cases are no exception. However, in most cases Attorney Ramirez will work with the family to establish a payment plan suitable for everyone.
