Since obtaining her Juris Doctor in 2013 from the University of Baltimore School of Law, Leah Ramirez has focused much of her law practice on reuniting children with their parents.
As an international family law attorney at the Markham Law Firm in Bethesda, Ramirez regularly represents children in federal and state courts in international and interstate child abduction cases and jurisdictional disputes. She represents parents and children in cases under the 1980 Hague Convention in the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction.
She is also a qualified England and Wales solicitor and licensed to practice law in Maryland, the District of Columbia and Florida.
“I can vividly remember either personally being there or receiving photographs from clients when they are reunited with their children. It is such a rewarding experience and professional accomplishment that is difficult to match,” Ramirez said. She believes in the motto: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
Ramirez is a member of the Family Section of the Bar Association of Montgomery County, the Women’s Bar Association of Maryland Montgomery County Chapter, the Baltimore County Bar Association, the District of Columbia Bar Association, the Maryland State Bar Association and the American Bar Association.
