Helping clients resolve disputes, providing guidance and counseling, listening to clients’ concerns, and understanding their goals requires mastering facts, laws, and numbers. But litigation is much more than that. Litigation demands recognizing the information that will relate the client’s story in order to achieve the best results.

As both a student and professor of history, Luis Ramos is well-versed in constructing compelling and coherent narratives out of disparate and voluminous facts and bringing clarity and context to complex subjects. He leverages these skills and his lifelong interest in public health policy in his work as a litigator, crafting persuasive arguments and implementing effective strategies in response to government investigations, enforcement actions, and prosecutions.

Luis defends the interests of providers of all stripes in False Claims Act, Stark Law, anti-kickback statute, and other fraud and abuse matters. When approaching a case, Luis can quickly identify the issues and facts that help meet the client’s goals. His ability to translate abstract, esoteric, or impenetrable laws and regulations into actionable advice helps clients understand their options, obligations, and risks so they can make informed, collaborative decisions about how to best proceed.

In addition to his litigation experience, Luis has an impressive and unique academic background, earning an M.A. and Ph.D. in history from the University of Chicago and working as a tenure-track Assistant Professor of History. His courses included a history of public health.  While at the University of Chicago Luis was a Jefferson Scholar National Fellow at the University of Virginia (2013-14) and was recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship (2010-11). While earning his law degree, Luis served as a judicial extern for the Honorable Yvonne Gonzalez-Rogers at the Northern District of California and as a law clerk at the East Bay Community Law Center’s Health and Welfare Practice. In 2019 he received the Prosser Prize in U.S. Civil Rights History.

Always interested in how health care is delivered, how patients can best be served, and how providers navigate the complexities of the practice, government regulations, and the business of medicine, Luis subsequently pursued a health care-focused legal career.
