Ralph Laurence Sapia

About me

Ralph Sapia earned his B.A degree in Political Science from the University of Maryland Baltimore County in 1989; following graduation he spent several years running his family’s business in Ocean City, Maryland. He completed his Certification in Secondary Education at The College of Notre Dame and began teaching high school social studies in Baltimore County. During his number of years with the school system, Ralph co-wrote and piloted the Advance Placement Economics Curriculum.

In 1999, Ralph was accepted to the University of Baltimore School of Law. While teaching full-time he pursued his law degree at night and completed the program in three years. In 2004, Ralph and a colleague ventured out on their own and, in 2010 the firm became The Law Office of Ralph L. Sapia, P.A.

Over the years Ralph has developed an understanding of meeting his client’s objectives and creating realistic expectations. As a teacher, Ralph has the ability to convey complex concepts in ways a non-lawyer can understand. Ralph’s practice focus is in business and family law matters.

Ralph’s business savvy allows him to represent clients in shareholders/members disputes, breach of contract and collection matters. Ralph brings his no nonsense approach to family law matters, where his approach allows his clients to focus on resolving disputes over alimony, property distribution and child custody in a swift and economic manner.

“Ninety-Nine percent of the time, I get called because there is a crisis. My job is to treat the legal issue while being aware there is a person attached to it.”

A graduate of the Cardinal Gibbons High School, Ralph grew up between Baltimore and Ocean City, MD. Ralph continues his teaching as an instructor with the Shemer Bar Review and on weekends when he’s not in a courtroom, Ralph can be found on high school football fields throughout Baltimore City and Baltimore County as a football official.
