Claimed Lawyer Profile

Attorney Barry S. Ranshi is from New Orleans, Louisiana. Mr. Ranshi graduated from The University of New Orleans (B.A.), and Loyola University New Orleans College of Law (J.D.). As a student practitioner at Loyola, he assisted in the representation of several indigent defendants in Orleans Parish, which included writing several successful preliminary motions and helping attain the release of a defendant charged with first degree murder. During his final summer in law school, he served as a judicial intern for 24th Judicial District Court Judge Robert Pitre.

There, he prepared complex memorandums of law regarding exceptions to the two-year time period in which to seek post-conviction relief. Additionally, he assisted Judge Pitre in pre-trial discovery.

Mr. Ranshi served as Staff Attorney to Orleans Parish Criminal District Court Judge Darryl A. Derbigny for 8 years. There he reviewed all written memorandums of law and post-conviction relief applications, while advising the Court on substantive criminal law, procedure, and evidence. One of his most memorable highlights include assisting the Court in reversing a defendant’s wrongful conviction of Second Degree Murder. Judge Derbigny’s decision was affirmed by the Louisiana Supreme Court. In addition, he prepared the Court’s jury instructions and written rulings, while assuring compliance with appellate court orders. In collaboration with his counterparts, he took part in rewriting the Criminal Court’s entire expungement procedure.

Barry opened his own practice to help more people. In addition to practicing criminal defense, he also focuses on personal injury and maritime injury cases. Barry prides himself on constant client communication, making himself accessible to his clients throughout the State of Louisiana. His clients’ concerns are his top priority.
