  MICHELE L. RAMP

is the Firm’s senior long-term care paralegal with more than 20 years experience with the Firm. She began her career as a legal secretary in 1992 and has been the Firm’s main long-term care paralegal in October 2001.

 Michele tries to follow the  dictates of her position in  accordance with the words of Abraham J. Heschel: “A test of a people is how it behaves toward the old. It is easy to love children. Even tyrants and dictators make a point of being fond of children. But the affection and care for the old, the incurable, the helpless are the true gold mines of a culture.”
