My Approach


My approach to Family Law is one in which the family is held in high regard. This area of the law is one that significantly impacts the litigants and their loved ones long after a judgment is rendered. I will always strive to do what is best for my client and his or her family in the long run. When the legal matters are resolved, what remains is usually a family that is permanently changed, but is a family nonetheless.

About the Attorney


Tobie Lynn Tranchina

Tobie Lynn Tranchina graduated magna cum laude from Loyola University of New Orleans College of Law in 2017. While at Loyola she worked in the Children's Rights and Family Law Clinics and was the recipient of the 2017 Association of Women Attorney's Law Student Award for her work with the clinics. 

Tobie began her career at a general practice firm in Gretna, Louisiana. After working there for a year, she decided to begin a solo practice and return to focusing her time on family law and successions. Tobie is also a qualified domestic mediator in Louisiana for issues of child custody and visitation. She currently serves as an incubator attorney at Loyola University of New Orleans College of Law, where she assists the family law section of the Loyola Law Clinic.

Prior to becoming a lawyer, Tobie was an elementary school teacher on the westbank of Jefferson Parish for seven years. She carries the values instilled in her as an educator into her practice of law.

Tobie also had an article published in The Loyola University New Orleans Journal of Public Interest Law in the spring of 2017. This article, titled "Nonparent Visitation Rights: A National Issue as Addressed in Louisiana," dealt with the complex laws pertaining to visitation rights of grandparents and other family members. Some of the statutory flaws highlighted in the article have been addressed by legislative revisions enacted in 2018.
