How Can I Help You Move Forward?

Residing in our New Orleans office, I care deeply for each of my clients and use my experience to solve their often complex legal problems, no matter how large or small. 


Since joining Lugenbuhl, Destinee Ramos has focused on several practice areas, including admiralty and maritime, commercial litigation, and insurance coverage and defense. She has acted on behalf of blue- and brown-water ship owners, carriers, logistics providers, oil and gas providers, small and large companies and their insurers. Destinee is a highly experienced advocate at all stages of the litigation process, from pre-dispute negotiations to formal litigation in state and federal trial and appellate courts. 

After graduating from law school, Destinee joined the Marine Group of an international law firm, where she was directly involved in numerous maritime and commercial litigation matters. 

Outside the Office

In Destinee’s free time, she enjoys watching football and spending time with her husband and two sons.
