What do you want people to say about you at your retirement party?  Frank Ramos wears multiple hats, but all of his activities and hobbies are centered around ensuring that his life is meaningful.

Licensed in Florida, Frank Ramos is a litigation partner and has worked with the same law firm for 23 years.  However, Frank has diverse interests which range from being an author to mentoring lawyers to being a former podcast host.

Among his 18 other books, Frank is the author of a book called the Associate Whisperer.  Frank is empathetic with young lawyers in a way that resonates with them.  This book provides probing questions and assignments for these lawyers to determine where they want to be in life and ensure that they are in the right place.

Frank Ramos created the website, Miami Mentor, to provide information about public speaking, trial skills, being published and even evaluating your law firm.  Most of these resources are free; services that Frank provides to the world for the purpose of giving everyone the opportunity to educate themselves in weak areas.  Frank has resources for law students, young lawyers and established lawyers because Frank has been in all of these roles and uses his experiences to teach others.

Frank Ramos also spends his time working as a purpose coach where he challenges people to look for their mission, their destiny or what they are supposed to do in their lives.  Frank is adamant that this self reflection is not only necessary as a new lawyer, but tenured lawyers may also learn about what motivates them.
