The lawyer is the secretary general of the National Union of Peoples’ Lawyers (NUPL) Negros Occidental chapter.

He is also one of those who helped the farmers after the 9 sugarcane workers in Negros Occidental have been killed at Hacienda Nene in the town of Sagay last month.

NUPL wrote on the port that Ramos is also a pro-bono lawyer of activists, political prisoners, mass organizations, environmentalists, and peasants in the province of Negros.
