Ramon Montijo Jr. represents a variety of Bay Area professionals and executives in complicated divorces and dissolutions.
Ramon’s career in family law began in 2008 when he began volunteering at Pro Bono Project Silicon Valley in San Jose. He has practiced family law exclusively since that time, working at various family law firms throughout the Bay Area, including San Francisco and San Mateo.
Ramon has experience in every aspect of family law litigation from initial orders through settlement – or trial as the case may be. He has assisted numerous clients with dissolution, paternity actions, high conflict custody and visitation matters, complex property division, child support, and spousal support. Ramon has successfully represented clients at contested hearings, settlement conferences, emergency screenings, and custody evaluations. He has second-chaired multiple-day trials on such issues as custody, property division, business valuation, and breach of fiduciary duty.
A Bay Area native, Ramon attended high school at Mountain View Academy and received his undergraduate degree in Anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley. After graduating, he performed graduate work in Near Eastern Archaeology and Cultural Anthropology. He then attended San Francisco Law School and was awarded a Juris Doctorate in 2006.
While in law school Ramon was one of three students selected to participate in the 2005 Roger J. Traynor California State Moot Court Competition, which consisted of more than a dozen California law schools, including Berkeley, UCLA, and Hastings. His team won first place for Best Brief.
Upon graduation from law school, Ramon interned at the Santa Clara County Public Defender’s Office and, upon his admission to the State Bar of California, he worked as a defense attorney for the Fresno County Public Defender’s Office.
