Tere Ramos

Life Mission: As a disability advocate, Ramos seeks justice for low- and moderate-income families and those with limited English—people who are often underserved by the legal system. Adding to Her Credentials: She is a native speaker of Spanish and English, fluent in Portuguese, Italian, and French and has a working knowledge of Chinese, German, and Russian. Pre-Law: “Before I was a lawyer, I was a mother to a girl with autism. As I advocated for my child and navigated complicated and convoluted medical and legal worlds, I wondered how a Latina mother who doesn’t speak English, with humble means or without an advanced education, would navigate the system. I went to law school determined to focus my legal work in serving the Latino community in education matters.”
