About Us

Jeremiah Chiappelli, Esq.

Jeremiah has been a member of the Maryland bar since December 2006. Before starting the Chiappelli Law Firm, LLC in January 2008, Jeremiah worked with several experienced attorneys to learn the ropes of practicing law. He was drawn to family law, wills and estates because it enabled him to help people in areas where it made a big difference in their lives.

Kids are the most valuable things in most clients' lives. He has seen a wide-range of custody situations over his years of experience. As the father of four children, Jeremiah knows how hard it is to be a parent (and amazing).

As a former Air Force brat, Jeremiah understands the military lifestyle first-hand. He will work with you to secure the best outcome for your case.

Time and time again, Jeremiah has seen people confronting the court system for the first time in handling a deceased family member's estate, suing someone or being charged with a crime. It can be overwhelming. He takes a great deal of satisfaction in helping people navigate the court system successfully.

His commitment to public service has led him to the Women's Law Center of Maryland and the YWCA Annapolis where he has participated as an attorney in the Reduced Fee Custody Project. He is also a member of Civil Justice, Inc., an organization dedicated to providing legal services to people who might not otherwise be able to afford it.

Before settling into a legal career, Jeremiah enjoyed a brief Hollywood career as a background actor and production assistant. If you ask him, he will be more than happy to share the highlights.
