In 1990, Ralph began his practice of law in Athens, Georgia where he practiced for over 15 years. For ten of those years Ralph served as a prosecuting attorney with the county. During his time as a prosecutor, Ralph was selected to become a faculty member of the Prosecuting Attorney’s Counsel focusing on training and instructing young prosecutors throughout the State of Georgia.

While in Athens Ralph also worked at the University Of Georgia School Of Law as coordinator of the University’s Mock Trial Program and served as an Adjunct Faculty member instructing law students on Complex Litigation. During his tenure and under his tutelage the Law School recorded its first ever national mock trial championship. In 2000, Ralph was honored to be selected by the Governor of the State of Georgia to serve as Solicitor General of Clarke County.

In 2005, Ralph resigned his commission as Solicitor General, moved with his family to live on their farm in Worth County and practiced law with the firm, McCall Williams & Phillips (later changed to McCall Williams Wilmot & Powell). As a partner with this firm, Ralph focused his practice on representing businesses and individuals in the areas of health care law with an emphasis on nursing home litigation, heavy trucking/automobile accidents, municipal liability and labor and employment law.
