CHARLOTTE, NC—Veteran immigration law attorney Susan Ramos recently joined the Womble Immigration Solutions, bringing more than 15 years of experience assisting individuals, families, and employers in assessing available U.S. immigration options.
Ramos recently discussed joining Womble with Law360. She started her career as a public defender and a criminal defense lawyer before making the switch to immigration law.
“I really started to realize that immigration law was also an avenue that I wanted to pursue and I felt like if I continued to practice criminal defense then I would probably never try it,” she tells Law360. “And I loved it, and I never looked back.”
Susan Ramos ’ practice includes preparing and filing individual, family-based, and employment-based petitions, immigrant and nonimmigrant visa applications, and waivers of inadmissibility. Ramos assists with complex consular processing issues, complicated citizenship and naturalization issues, petitions for humanitarian relief, and removal defense. She advises employers regarding worksite compliance, conducting internal I-9 audits and trainings, and negotiating with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) regarding employer sanctions. She is fluent in Spanish.
