Mr. Ramana dedicates a significant segment of his career to his pro bono practice. His pro bono successes include securing a writ of habeas corpus for the release of an innocent man serving time in prison on the eve of his unlawful deportation, forcing the return of two kidnapped children secretly taken to Saudi Arabia, and obtaining a reversal of immigration judge’s deliberate disregard of integral portions of the record to reach a decision to deport a persecuted man.
