Ryan J. Kief
Attorney at Law

Proud to Serve the Shore!


Meet Ryan Kief, Esquire


A "Son of the Shore"

Ryan is a proud Maryland native, and especially proud he hails from the Eastern Shore.  Growing up, Ryan spent his summers in Ocean City, Maryland, relaxing on the beach and working on the boardwalk. Ryan also knows his way around a poultry farm, and, in a pinch, he can even haul in crab pots.

Like most Marylanders, Ryan loves to pick crabs and go clamming.  He also takes pride in his fried oysters.


A Focus on Trial Advocacy

Ryan received his Bachelors in History from the University of Maryland, College Park.  He was then accepted to the University of Minnesota Law School- recognized at the time as one of the top 20 law school programs in the Nation.

Ryan -ever focused on becoming a top trial attorney- spent his time at Minnesota focusing on developing skills and knowledge that would make him a great courtroom advocate.  Ryan focused his studies on areas like criminal procedure, evidence, and constitutional law.  He practiced practical skills he would need in the courtroom. Ultimately, his effort and focus earned Ryan a position on Minnesota's competitive trial team, where he represented the University of Minnesota Law School in competition with other law schools around the Country.
