About Us


We understand the reason people come to us is to address how legal issues or crisis in their lives can be resolved. But we’ll never suggest you act without understanding fully the strategies to be pursued and the reasons behind them.

Responsible legal representation isn’t about telling you what to do. It’s about listening. Understanding your goals and priorities. Learning what’s important to you. Then, helping you come to an intelligent decision that’s right for your special circumstances and needs by explaining your legal rights and options.

That’s empowerment.

Professional And Experienced Elder Law and Disability Law Attorney

JOSEPH RANNI, Esq. Attorney at Law — Ranni Law Firm

“People hate feeling powerless, and litigation by it’s nature is time consuming and emotionally draining. It’s important each client understands all possible legal and non-legal action that can be taken, its likelihood of success, and the strategies being undertaken to empower them through the achievement of their goals.”

Joseph Ranni concentrates on 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 disability and elder 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 a former Presiding Justice for the Town of Chester, NY. His client-centric approach looks beyond the disability and focuses instead upon the goals of the client for their future needs. He has been recognized by his fellow attorneys for the past several 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.

Community Involvement: Mr. Ranni volunteers on several non-profit committees and local civic organizations, and provides pro bono legal work through advocacy groups throughout the region.
