Webb County Attorney Anna Cavazos Ramirez has been suspended from practicing law in the state of Texas.
According to the Texas Bar Association, Ramirez never sent in her attorney occupation tax exemption forms and has been suspended from practicing law in Texas since September 1, 2009.
Ramirez says that all forms were sent in back in June, along with paperwork and bar fees of 11 other county attorneys, and doesn't understand why her bar fee was processed while her tax exemption form was not.
Until her suspension is over, Ramirez is not allowed to offer any legal advice. Offering legal advice is part of her duty as county attorney. Since September 1st, she has done so numerous times. Ramirez claims she was unaware she had been suspended from practicing law until recently.
