Jack Ramieri focuses his practice on commercial and residential real estate development, including dealing with development of real estate properties, inclusive of rezoning and related municipal matters, as well as all general purchase, sale and financing transactions involving both commercial and residential properties. He also practices in the area of wills and probate law including preparation of estate planning documents (inclusive of wills, powers of attorney, and trusts), as well as assistance to individuals and institutions in connection with estate administration and probate matters.

Fluent in Italian and very proud of his heritage, Jack is proud to serve the local Italo-Canadian community on the Board of Directors of the Ciociaro Club of Windsor.  He also played a key role in bringing about the “twinning” of the Town of Tecumseh, Ontario, with Frosinone, the provincial capital of the Ciociaria region in Italy.  In this capacity, Jack has represented our community on various delegations to Italy promoting educational, cultural and business exchanges between Canada and Italy, and serves as co-Chairman of the local committee which arranges for both high school and university level student exchanges between our region and Italy.   Jack is also a frequent guest speaker on various subjects from Italian history, literature and culture as part of  the Giovanni Caboto Club’s Italian Cultural Series.   Jack also organizes and hosts the Battle of the Brains Dinner & Trivia Challenge, a benefit event for the Alzheimer Society of Windsor-Essex County, which has, since its inaugural event in 2012, become the second largest live quiz event in North America.
