Joseph J. Ranni

Attorney at Law

Mr. Ranni concentrates in litigation protecting the rights of individuals and empowering them to obtain the best legal solutions possible.

He began his career in the New York City Metro area in 1987 as a litigator for employment and disability cases in state and federal courts while volunteering as a NYS Certified Nursing Home Ombudsman.

With the enactment of the American Disabilities Act in the 1990’s, Mr. Ranni felt there was a clear symmetry between employment, disability, elder and special education law. Believing that least restrictive living environments, self-facilitation and reasonable accommodation were a person’s rights regardless of the age, disability or circumstance of the individual, he chose to focus his practice on these issues.

Mr. Ranni is admitted to practice law in the States of New York, Florida, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and is currently a Presiding Justice for the Town of Chester, NY. He has been recognized by his fellow attorneys for the past 2 years as one of the Top Attorneys in Upstate New York and a Super Lawyer for peer recognition and professional achievement by the Thomson-Reuters Service.

A strong believer in community involvement, Mr. Ranni volunteers on several non-profit legal committees and local civic organizations, and provides pro bono legal work through advocacy groups throughout the region.
