Profile

Bio

Protecting your rights is a priority for me in your defense. Too often our clients are presumed guilty until proven innocent, as a former prosecutor, I have experienced the in's and out's of bringing justice from the state's side, however, justice isn't always served for those who are deemed criminals. I am committed to making sure you receive a fair trial, no matter the circumstances. 

Personal Biography

Ryan Volo was born and raised in New Orleans, and Louisiana runs deep in his veins. As an avid sports fan and outdoorsman, Ryan always takes the beauty and wonder from Louisiana and engrains it into his life playing soccer and volleyball. From the beaches to the mountains, Ryan enjoys the simple things in life, including hanging with his dog, Messi. 

Educational Biography

Ryan graduated from Brother Martin High School with a dream to attend LSU. Fulfilling that dream, Ryan held his undergraduate degree in Business Management, but shortly after 9/11 struck, he found himself working at a bank unable to assist others who desperately needed it during the decline and recession. A few of Ryan's friends were already in law school and encouraged him to enroll at Southern University, in order to pursue his passion to help others navigate through the legal process.
