Ronnie obtained his Bachelor of Arts degrees in History and Political science from Georgia State University in 2010, and attended law school at Syracuse University, graduating in 2013 with a Juris Doctorate and a certificate in Technology Commercialization.


Upon graduating law school, Ronnie joined the Onondaga County Department of Law, where he was responsible for representing municipal agencies in state, federal, local and family courts. Ronnie then joined one of Central New York's preeminent private law firms, before deciding on gaining enough experience to start his own law practice. He now runs a small general practice that focuses on criminal defense, family law, and civil litigation.


He was admitted to the New York State Bar in 2014 and admitted to practice in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York in 2016.


Ronnie is a founding member of the William Herbert Johnson Bar Association of Central New York, Central New York’s only African American Bar Association; a member of the Onondaga County Bar Association; and a member of the New York State and American Bar Associations.

He is President of the Board of Directors of the Newland Center for Adult Learning and Literacy, and a member of the Preservation Association of Central New York's Board of Directors.


In his spare time Ronnie enjoys writing music, attending concerts and sporting events, and enjoying the arts. He lives in Syracuse, NY with his wife and step-daughter, and is active in civic organizations, including the Onondaga Democratic Committee, which he has been a member of since 2016, and has served on its Executive Committee as the Parliamentarian.

RWJ Esq, PLLC: Client Feedback

"Ronnie is a great attorney and friendly person. The people wanted six months in jail and Ronnie was able to convince them to give me a conditional discharge, so the outcome was way better than I hoped for. I was very nervous when I first saw the reviews with people saying he is bad and I don’t want him and they can never get in contact with him, but he is very knowledgeable and professional and will definitely fight to get you the best possible outcome. Also I was able to get in touch with him very easily and always replied to my emails the same day and when called office was able to get an appointment with him before court. I highly recommend him if you are in need of an attorney, definitely worth having on your side…. Thanks again Ronnie!!." -Satisfied Client

"My agreement was drafted really quickly and I was completely satisfied with its' contents and thoroughness" -Previous Client
