Matthew Ramos’ attraction to family law began early as a teenager while volunteering for several justice organizations including Crime Stoppers and Elizabeth Fry Law Society’s Youth and Adult Court Programs. Matthew gained a rare insight into court processes and court proceedings which fostered an understanding of people in pain.
During Matthew’s undergraduate career he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology and Sociology with distinction from the University of Alberta. His double major, combined with his experience in the justice system as a volunteer before law school, and during law school with Student Legal Services’ Family and Civil Project and the Edmonton Community Legal Clinic, deepened his understanding of the tough emotions people experience during separation and divorce.
During law school Matthew also worked part-time with Long Family Law Group LLP for two summers, demonstrating his commitment to the team, while also serving as an upper year mentor to three first year students.
After finishing his Juris Doctorate Degree, Matthew is now a member of the Long Family Law Group LLP team, working as a student-at-law. He vows to work tirelessly to assist clients as they navigate the toughest time of their lives.
In his non-law life, Matthew is a first person shooter video gamer and considers himself to be an all-around geek. These days, however, he prefers to focus his skills on solving legal problems and helping people.
