The December Military Matters #ProBonoSpotlight honors Mario J. Moore Ramirez, founder of Moore Ramirez Law Firm. In his first month volunteering, Mario opened his heart and accepted six family law referrals. Mario models his legal practice and firm culture on the phrase “el abogada del pueblo,” which translates to “attorney for the people.” He shared, “Growing up in Honduras, I have experienced first-hand an environment that made individuals leave their home country and everything they love behind to immigrate to the United States. I became an attorney to be their voice.”
Mario never served in the military but his father is a retired Army Lieutenant Captain. Mario said, “I am grateful for the opportunity through Military Matters to give back and say thank you to the service men and women who have given so much.” His personal charitable endeavors take him to Honduras once a month, where he and his family provide elderly members of the community with food, medicine, glasses, and other necessities. He also volunteers his legal expertise to help families at the Mattie Rhodes Center.
Mario is an international attorney with active bar licenses in Honduras and the United States, received after completing law school in both countries. Becoming an attorney seemed inevitable as his family includes many attorneys, judges, and legal advocates. When he isn’t fighting to make the American dream a reality for his clients, he travels the world to experience different cultures and new places. One of his greatest joys in life is spending time with family and friends.
