About Marco Donatelli
Hi, my name is Marco Donatelli, I am an attorney at Ramos Law. Simply put – I help people through difficult situations. That’s what I’ve always done, and now I help people to navigate our legal system. I was taught to care deeply and fight for what’s right – and that’s what we do every day here at Ramos Law. I am proud to be a part of such a passionate and dedicated team.
I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. I grew up hiking in the Adirondack Mountains, sailing around Long Island Sound, and helping my father in his own small law firm. My wonderful parents were pillars of our community. They instilled in me the importance of community involvement and a strong work ethic.
After receiving my undergraduate degree in political sciences and economics from the University of Geneseo, I worked as a paralegal for a boutique firm in New York City. This solidified my interest in the law, but I wanted to dive deeper. I went to Brooklyn Law School where I graduated cum laude and specialized in areas such as constitutional law and international law. There I also served as an editor for the Brooklyn Journal of International Law and on the executive board of several honors societies.
During law school, I worked as a Judicial Extern at the New York Appellate Division, 1st Department, where I researched and drafted court opinions and memoranda of law. This gave me a unique “behind the bench” view into the inner workings of judicial chambers which informs my practice every day. I also worked at several litigation firms around Manhattan, learning the craft of Real Estate Development, Insurance Litigation, Personal Injury, Mass Tort Litigation, and more. I then worked for the King’s County (Brooklyn) District Attorney’s Office, where I prosecuted misdemeanor cases and offenses. Through these experiences, I have gained a broad base of knowledge, but my goal has remained the same – serving my community.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy playing blues guitar, home winemaking, exercising, and anything outdoors.
I am always here to help. If there is anything that my team can do, we will. Please do not hesitate to reach out.
