Ramon A. Rasco drawn to hometown as he pursues courtroom challenges and civic causes
Born and raised in Miami, 32-year-old Ramon Rasco left his hometown after high school to study at Harvard and Columbia universities. But rather than stay in the Northeast to kickoff his career, he chose to return because Miami is a "new city that has so much to offer, and there is so much opportunity here," he says.
Mr. Rasco has made a point of taking advantage of local opportunities. He holds his dream job at a long-standing, homegrown Miami law firm — Podhurst Orseck — and serves on the boards of community organizations such as Community Partnership for Homeless and Drug Free Youth in Town.
In addition to cultivating his legal career at the firm, continuing to focus on personal injury/wrongful death litigation, commercial litigation and other current concentrations, he says he hopes one day to help form a bank. Mr. Rasco was interviewed in Podhurst Orseck's downtown Miami offices by Miami Today staff writer Risa Polansky.
