Ralph Sapia, owner and principal, is a seasoned and highly respected attorney who brings years of professional experience to the law firm. He is also a businessman, a teacher, and most importantly a thoughtful and caring human being. “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.” This awareness is exhibited in all his areas of practice.
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 he guides his clients to focus on resolving disputes over alimony, property distribution and child custody in a swift and economic manner. He has the innate ability to meet his client’s objectives while creating realistic expectations. He does so by conveying complex concepts in ways a non-lawyer can understand. Ralph has successfully argued real estate and family law matters in the court of special appeals demonstrating his strong litigation skills.
