About Us

In 1983, the firm's predecessor, Montalvo & Ramirez of McAllen, Texas, was organized to provide legal services to commercial and local government clients. Eventually, the firm became a major provider of bond counsel services to local government units in South Texas. On January 1, 2008, managing partner Jesus Ramirez and an associate spun off into Ramirez & Guerrero, L.L.P. (McAllen, Texas), continuing a similar practice. Since November 1, 2013, The J. Ramirez Law Firm has continued its representation of commercial and governmental clients and continues to provide bond counsel services.
