Tomas Ramirez was born in Kingsville, Texas,
as the oldest of four children into a family devoted to education. Both of his parents were school teachers, and an emphasis on education was a priority in their family. After graduating from Hebbronville High School, Ramirez attended the University of Texas at Austin where he obtained his Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Engineering. He was accepted to the University of Texas School of Law to begin in the fall of 1988, however the law school granted him a two year deferment so that he could work with Mobil Oil as an engineer in West Texas.
As a Mobil Oil engineer, Ramirez had an office in downtown Midland, Texas. He was put in charge of over 200 oil and gas wells, designing work-overs for low-producing wells, as well as completions for newly-drilled wells. His job required him to be out in the oilfield regularly where he learned the nuances of the industry by working firsthand with site foremen, work crews, service companies, and other engineers. At the conclusion of his job with Mobil Oil, Ramirez chose to enter the University of Texas School of Law in 1990, where he graduated in May 1993.
After passing the Texas Bar Exam that summer and marrying his lovely wife Diana, Ramirez began practicing law in San Antonio. He decided to open his own law office immediately rather than working for a law firm in the hopes of getting a much faster grasp of the legal system and its intricacies. He began by doing court-appointed criminal work. Those cases, in turn, led to referrals in civil cases such as family law and personal injury cases. Soon after Ramirez was engulfed in a law practice
handling both civil and criminal work. Today, Ramirez has established a reputation in the legal community as an aggressive and successful trial lawyer. The vast majority of his cases are based on referrals from former clients or acquaintances who have firsthand knowledge of his legal skills. Attorney Ramirez is licensed to practice before the United States Supreme Court, all Texas state courts, and certain Texas federal courts.
The Governor of Texas appointed Ramirez to serve on the Clean Coal Technology Council in 2003, and in 2010 he was appointed to serve as a Board Member on the Nueces River Authority. In addition, he has also served as a Special Prosecutor in felony cases in Medina and Uvalde Counties when asked by the District Attorney’s Office.
Ramirez has been married to his lovely wife Diana since 1993 and the couple was blessed with three children. He is also a Bible teacher and began preaching part-time in the late 1990s. In June 2001, he was licensed as a minister by the First Baptist Church in Devine, Texas. He continues to teach the Bible and supply preach.
He was also elected by the citizens of Medina County as their Justice of the Peace for precinct 4, where he continues to serve.
