Managing Attorney, West Office and Eviction Defense Center
Ronnette Ramos oversees attorneys working on eviction defense — protecting, preserving, and assuring quality, affordable housing. As a managing attorney, Ronnette oversees LAFLA’s role in Los Angeles’ Shriver Housing Project.
Ronnette first joined LAFLA in 2000 as the coordinating attorney for LAFLA’s then-most progressive project, the Unlawful Detainer Equal Access Project (UDEAP), wherein she educated, encouraged and provided direct legal services to the low-income residents facing evictions through Day of Trial Representation and Trial Preparation Clinics.
After leaving LAFLA in 2003, Ramos continued to help the residents of Los Angeles County by assisting self-represented litigants in family law, unlawful detainer and other civil matters as a Site Supervising Attorney for the Self-Help Legal Access Centers. Just prior to returning to LAFLA in November 2011, Ronnette served as a Supervising Attorney for the Los Angeles Superior Court, where she managed and oversaw the daily operations for the nation’s largest resource center at the Stanley Mosk Resource Center for Self-Represented Litigants.
Ronnette has an undergraduate degree from Boston College and a JD from Loyola Law School. Ronnette has served as a presenter and facilitator for the Statewide Conference on Self-Represented Litigants, the Pathways to Justice Conference, the Equal Justice Conference, NLADA Annual Conference, and LAAC/AOC Family Law Conference.
