Fighter pilot training requires the ability to handle intense pressure, manage fear, and the ability to incorporate new information at a faster pace than others. The personal qualities of precision, tenacity, fearlessness and confidence enabled Randy to complete this training and reach a position very few others achieve. These character traits and abilities that Randy developed while serving our country in the Air Force and Air Guard are the very same qualities the person defending your rights should have.
As an Assistant State Attorney, Randy gathered a wealth of experience in criminal proceedings. He handled over 2,000 cases in his years with the State Attorney’s office, and successfully prosecuted thousands of misdemeanor and felony cases – many of them resolved through jury trials. The experience Randy gained as a prosecutor is tremendously valuable to you as his client because he understands the ins and outs of legal proceedings and the details that may mean the difference between incarceration and freedom.
Randy strives to be the kind of attorney that he would want to hire for his own family members. While proud of his achievements and confident in his abilities, Randy retains a level of humility not often witnessed in the legal field. In the same way he feels that flying an F15 is a privilege, he recognizes the privilege it is that you entrust him with what may be one of the most important situations of your life. He will handle your case aggressively and compassionately from start to finish, working hard to defend your rights and liberty.
