Attorneys Contribute Time In Educating Latino Community About Workers’ Compensation Rights


In conjunction with the Georgia State Bar and the YLD’s Minorities In the Profession Committee, the Ramos & Law organized and presented “Law Day” to the Latin American Association in Atlanta, Georgia on June 27, 2009. The event was designed to provide an educational forum to spread awareness in the Latino community about their legal rights. Bryan Ramos, the founder and principal of the Ramos Law Firm, presented a seminar on the “Essential Elements of Workers’ Compensation” which was aimed at the specific obstacles particular to the Hispanic worker. Other seminars covered areas including immigration, family, criminal, and consumer law. Additionally, representatives from the Atlanta Legal Aid, Injured Workers’ Pharmacy, Georgia Legal Services, and the Georgia Law Center for the Homeless participated in the event.

According to Adriana Sola Capifali, the event chairperson, the participation was “ten times that of prior events.” Through these efforts, she hopes to further the mission of “representing Hispanic workers and preventing any unfair exploitation.” The attorneys at the Ramos Law Firm have handled hundreds of claims including spinal cord injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, knee and shoulder pain, amputation injuries, and neurological trauma.

The Latin American Association helps Latino families achieve their aspirations for their academic, social and economic development. The Association accomplishes this through direct programs and integrated community partnerships that focus on youth academic achievement, education and prevention, and services to families with urgent needs.
