The litigation matters he has handled have been mainly on the Plaintiffs side in a variety of types of cases. Mr. Ramsey was lead counsel representing Fulton County retirees in a Federal class action lawsuit against Fulton County for its failure to maintain constitutionally protected health insurance benefits.

Mr. Ramsey also represented the family of a freshman student shot to death at a local university, which resulted in a confidential settlement against the local university. In the area of subrogation, Mr. Ramsey represented the interests of the Weather Channel and its insurer in a case against a fire sprinkler company that damaged its broadcast equipment at the Weather Channel facilities. That case was successfully concluded with a six figure settlement.
Most recently, Mr. Ramsey successfully resolved a case against a major corporation with a confidential settlement for a family of a man killed by an intoxicated employee leaving a company event. Mr. Ramsey has handled numerous other types of cases on the Plaintiffs side over the years that have provided challenging legal issues. Mr. Ramsey has handled the defense of persons and corporations over the years in a minority of his cases. Mr. Ramsey began his legal career handling criminal cases. Ten of those were murder cases, of which two were tried to a jury successfully. Mr. Ramsey also just completed a year long executive course of study on financial planning at the University of Georgia and passed the Certified Financial Planners national exam.
