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.
