Welcome Attorney Ramirez

Attorney Juan S. Ramirez

Everyone at Cafferty & Scheidegger is pleased to welcome Juan S. Ramirez to our expert Racine team. He has previously practiced criminal defense as a Public Defender in Racine County for the past five years, representing both adults and juveniles. Through Juan’s dedicated work in his last role, his client received an acquittal in a homicide case, for which Juan was awarded the Hanson Memorial Advocated Prize by the Wisconsin Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Juan prioritizes keeping his clients informed throughout the legal process and makes sure clients understand every step of their case. Juan is passionate about his work and obtaining the best results possible for his clients whether it be an acquittal at trial or dismissal of the case. 

Criminal defense attorney Juan Ramirez is bilingual in Spanish and English and can provide many benefits for his clients who speak Spanish as their first language. Since approximately 50 million people speak Spanish in the United States, and nearly 40 million people speak Spanish as their primary language at home, having a Spanish-speaking lawyer can be vital to your case.

For those who speak Spanish as their first language, having a bilingual attorney provides many advantages:

  • Bilingual attorneys can assess and resolve any language barriers
  • Communicate directly with you about the case and legal proceedings
  • Eliminate concerns over translation errors
  • Ensure you get the representation you deserve, and that you fully understand case details and proceedings
  • Can help any Spanish-speaking witnesses respond to inquiries
  • Ensure the questions asked of your witnesses are conveyed clearly and accurately
  • Can help improve communication and avoid confusion navigating our complex legal system

When both parties speak the same language, the chance of misunderstandings, breakdowns in trust, and miscommunication is greatly reduced. Clear communication in the same language is an advantage everyone has a right to during the legal process, from legal representation to being understood in court. By limiting the misunderstandings that occur, your legal case will have a higher chance of success.

Juan also has specialized knowledge in immigration law to understand how a criminal conviction may affect one’s immigration status.
