PATTI W. RAMSEUR
Ramseur Maultsby, Greensboro
Hometown: Drexel. After law school and clerking at the N.C. Court of Appeals in Raleigh,
I have lived in Greensboro for 22 years.
Undergraduate: North Carolina State University
Law: Wake Forest University School of Law
Practiced law: 23 years
Family: I have been married to my husband, Chris, for more than 23 years. We have two daughters, Reece,16, and Riley, 13. They are superstar swimmers and constantly inspire me with their drive and hard work. We have two Aussiedoodles, Finn and Missy, who are brother and sister. They add chaos and love to our lives.
High school group: Basketball was my true love and focus. I played on the varsity team
for three years. I also played on an AAU basketball team in Hickory. After basketball season ended, I enjoyed playing softball on the high school team and summer recreation teams. My senior year, I received the superlative for most athletic female. I identified most with the athletes.
One meal to eat forever: Baby back ribs with mashed potatoes, cream-style corn, and
French or sourdough bread.
Bucket list item: Visit Hawaii.
Biggest risk taken: In September 2020, in the middle of the pandemic, Alex Maultsby and I left a large national firm to launch our own law firm. There was such uncertainty with everything at that time but we strongly believed that creating a different structure would allow us to better serve our clients. Although this was a huge step for us, we had support from the N.C. Bar Association’s Center for Practice Management and amazing clients
who continued to partner with us.
Most used emoji: I rarely use emojis and tend to text in complete sentences. With my daughters, however, I often use the winky-kissy face throwing a kiss emoji.
Last show binge-watched: I rarely watch TV shows. My husband and I, however, anxiously religiously watch the “Chicago PD,” “Chicago Fire,” and “Chicago Med” shows.
Favorite winter activity: Attending our daughters’ swim meets and cheering them on, along with their friends.
Favorite SNACK: For a healthy snack, trail mix. For an unhealthy one, chips with French onion dip. ■
