A lifelong sports fan, Ramsey also loves working with, and advocating for, professional athletes and sports agents. He has represented professional athletes in doping-related arbitrations and litigations, agent/athlete contract negotiations, and entertainment and endorsement deals, including representing several of the wonderfully talented family members featured in The Long Game: Bigger Than Basketball, released on Apple TV in April 2022.

Ramsey is licensed to practice law in Oregon (2020) and New York (2007). He lives in Portland with his wife, son, and hyperactive dog. In his free time, he can be found hiking and snowshoeing at Mount Hood, cooking enormous family breakfasts, serenading his neighbors with his electric guitar, and pretending he can surf on the Oregon coast.
