DWI Appeal - When Lawyers Get DWIs

In In Re Ranshi,--- So.3d ----, 2011 WL 1088051 (La.), 2009-2722 (La. 3/25/11), the applicant to sit for the Lousiana Bar Examination, Barry Ranshi,failed to disclose a DWI in 2005, but disclosed another DWI from 2008. He was initially denied an opportunity to take the bar exam, but received a tentaive approval to sit, pending a subsequent character and fitness review.

He passed the exam, underwent an intensive outpatient treatment program and ongoing monitoring by LAP as a result of petitioner's history of alcohol abuse. He admitted his lack of candor to the Bar from failing to reveal one of his DWI convictions.

Barry was conditionally admitted to the Bar, and placed on a probationary status until he completed his LAP recommendations. "Within thirty days prior to the expiration of the conditional admission, and after consultation with the Executive Director of LAP, the ODC shall file a report in this court in which it shall recommend to the court that the conditional admission be allowed to terminate or be extended."
