Erin Ramey is a partner at Parlatore Law Group, with the experience and passion to handle your legal needs in a variety of areas. She focuses her practice on the areas of education law, legislative/ lobbying legal analysis, veterans’ affairs, and assisting small business and entrepreneurs.
Erin is a highly experienced professional with over thirteen years dedicated to legal, non-profit, education, and government services. Her combined skill set as a highly effective communicator, in-depth researcher, and analytical thinker who quickly identifies and break downs complex issues into simple problems for easy understanding and resolution, makes her a top choice for legal consultation and representation.
Before joining Parlatore Law Group, Erin worked for the USO non-profit organization as the Pacific Region Operations Manager, negotiating, drafting, and reviewing commercial and government contracts to support USO operations, fundraising, and programs, for USO centers overseas in Guam, Hawaii, Japan, Korea, and Okinawa and expeditionary locations in Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia. Her experience also includes providing legal counsel to active-duty service members and military spouses at the Unites States Marine Corps Legal Office at Camp Foster, Okinawa, Japan as a volunteer attorney. She also interned at the Office of the Governor at the Cabinet of Workforce Development and Education researching administrative, education, disability, and employment law.
Erin not only loves practicing law, but she also enjoys teaching and facilitating online trainings. Erin is a National Board-Certified teacher and has taught middle school and high school in Kentucky, California, and overseas at the Department of Defense Education Activities (DODEA) schools in Iwakuni, Japan and at the college level for Ashford University, teaching Criminal Law and Constitutional Law.
In her personal time, Erin advocates on behalf of military families and veterans. She recently drafted amendments to both Kentucky Revised Statute 12.357 and Kentucky Supreme Court Rule 3.040, in support of waiver of dues for military spouse professionals, both of which are in current rule hearings at the Kentucky Senate Veterans, Military Affairs, and Public Protection Committee and the Kentucky Supreme Court. With her advocacy background, she is a resource for groups seeking legislative/lobbying legal analysis across a broad spectrum. From cross-checking conflicts with existing laws, to pulling language from other states laws, to articulating key arguments to elected officials, to creating new and relevant legislation, she is eager to serve as counsel for lobbying and non-profit organizations seeking to make their communities a better place to live.
Erin is a charter member of Military Spouse JD Network and Mothers Esquire. She has also been recognized as a Kentucky Colonel for her community service and awarded the USOvation award for innovative military family support and streamlining business operations.
