How Ryan Ramsayer Got Into DUI Defense
Answer: Well, first off, I come from northern Minnesota. I was attending my undergraduate college, Bemidji State, and I was working on a history degree, and one day my professor sort of made the joke that as a history major, you'll always be asked whether or not you're going to teach or become a lawyer. And at that point, I hadn't really considered being a lawyer, but it sort of gave me a drive and determination to begin fulfilling that goal. And that's what led me eventually to Michigan State College of Law and into the practice of law.
As for the Barone Defense Firm and OWI defense, they were the ones that gave me my first opportunity to practice law coming out of law school. I've been here with the firm ever since.
What makes me passionate about practicing this type of law is very simple: it's something that affects everybody and it's something that everybody does. Whether we want to acknowledge it or not, pretty much everybody who's ever drank has, unfortunately, drank and then got behind the wheel. I have been in the car with many of my friends who have been arrested for drunk driving, and it's something that I find that because a majority of people do, I think that they need somebody there to support them and make sure that they understand that they're not alone, and that they have people there that care about them and are willing to help them out, contrary to what a lot of the TV commercials may say.
