Dr. Joseph Ramos, MD, JD
Colorado's Law Doctor
Hello, my name is Dr. Joseph Ramos and simply put, I love helping people. It’s in my DNA; my calling, you could say. I learned it from a young age watching my parents take care of stranded travelers in our very small rural town in central Nevada. My parents owned a gas station, and I worked there every day from the time I was 10 years old. I watched my dad fix tires for free, or fill up someone’s gas tank when they didn’t have any money. I saw many families stay overnight in our home when the weather wasn’t suitable for travel. I can’t tell you how many strangers my mom fed. It was commonplace. It was easy. It was the right thing to do.
I grew up and left my small town, but the values I learned from my parents have stayed with me. I paid my own way through college, medical school, and later – law school. Soon after medical school, I met my wife and together we are raising four great kids. I’ve led a very active life from hunting and fishing with my kids, to achieving a black belt in Tae Kwon Do, to trying out for the Olympic trapshooting team at 13 years old, to most recently becoming a private pilot. I think it’s apparent I love adventure and living life to its fullest.
It was during my medical career providing expert medical testimony that I realized I could help people even more with a law degree, so I went to law school. I learned as a medical expert that personal injury claims are more about the injuries than the law. To present the injuries to an insurance company or a jury, you must understand them. For this reason, as a medical doctor, I am a very effective personal injury attorney.
Whether it has been in medicine or in law, I hold true to the values I learned from that small town and my parents. I treat people fairly and justly, and truly want the very best for each and every person I take care of. I take my role as an attorney very seriously. I realize it’s an important position I have, getting my clients back on the road to recovery whether it be from a car accident, a sports injury or an injury on the job. What I do on their behalf impacts their life and their long-term health. It is a big responsibility. But for me… it is easy. It is the right thing to do.
