Versatile state and local government lawyer serving public and private sector clients across Florida. Focus on land use, development, and governmental affairs.
Heather Ramos represents public and private sector clients in all aspects of state and local government law. Her expertise includes issues relating to land use and real estate development, as well as legislative and governmental affairs on the local and state levels. Heather provides a broad scope of legal services involving Florida’s Public Records and Open Meeting Law, ethics and gift laws, special assessments, taxation and public finance, utility law, and constitutional law. She advises clients operating across Florida’s dynamic economy, including developers, landowners, municipalities, and special districts, among others.
For state and local governments, Heather currently serves as the town attorney for the Towns of Windermere and Astatula, general counsel to the Orange County Library District, assistant general counsel to Space Florida, and assistant general counsel to the North Brevard County Hospital District.
