Ramie Shalabi practices personal injury and workers’ compensation law. He was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina by a textile mill worker and a seamstress. He began working at a local grocery store at the age of 14 and has not stopped working since. He later attended the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC where he graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science while minoring in Business Administration.
Upon graduation, Ramie attended and earned his Juris Doctorate from one of the top law schools in the southeast – Wake Forest University School of Law. While in law school, Ramie was an editor for the Wake Forest University School of Law Journal of Law and Policy, which is still in publication today. Ramie began his legal career interning at the Richland County Solicitor’s Office before going on to intern at BB&T’s in-house legal department as well as the Federal Public Defender’s Office for the Middle District of North Carolina.
After earning his law degree, Ramie began working as a full-time prosecutor at the Richland County Solicitor’s Office where he met his current law partner, Curtis Dayson. Ramie spent hundreds of hours before judges in the courtroom prosecuting cases that ranged from property crimes to attempted murder. Ramie’s jury trial skills and confidence in the courtroom were developed as a prosecutor and carries those skills in confidence with him today as he takes on billion dollar insurance companies.
Ramie later began practicing at a local prominent insurance defense law firm representing some of the largest insurance companies in the world. His job used to be to pay as little to injured people as possible to save the insurance company money. He now uses everything he learned from his last job to fight against them to get every penny his injured clients are entitled to under the law.
Ramie stopped representing insurance companies and began representing people that were injured on the job or in motor vehicle accidents for a large law firm in South Carolina before starting his own law firm, Dayson & Shalabi Law Firm. Ramie has recovered millions of dollars for his clients since he began representing people instead of insurance companies. For Ramie, there is no greater feeling than helping a person in need of help. It is his calling in life and he works hard every day to achieve that. There is no greater feeling for Ramie than seeing his clients in a much better position at the end of the case than they were at the beginning.
Ramie currently represents injured individuals from all kinds of different industries – anywhere from construction workers to nurses and teachers – for their car accident cases or workers’ compensation claims.
