Raman’s practice often involves dealing with emotionally charged disputes. This applies to both the obligations that insurance professionals juggle when processing claims that affect peoples’ lives and the issues that charities and individuals face when dealing with contentious estates. She enjoys working with people to understand their issues and needs and being a forceful advocate for her clients to ensure they achieve a fair resolution of these issues.

Raman has volunteered with various charitable organizations around the world—an ethic that she inherited from her mother. These opportunities allow Raman to maintain a grounded perspective in both her personal and work life. She applies this perspective to help her clients determine and achieve the objectives that are truly important to them.
