General Litigation

Neither a traditional plaintiff's practice nor a traditional defense practice, Randy's experience is broad-based and transcends the common practice of firms now being pigeonholed into one specialty.

Randy is one of the rare attorneys who performs his own legal research and can quickly identify issues, find the applicable law on the subject, and advise you about both the good and bad parts of your case. Randy is not fearful of taking on larger firms and enjoys that challenge. Randy also takes on large items of litigation, including one case that was described as "the largest piece of litigation in Clark County, Nevada" by a local judge. That case, which involved four consolidated lawsuits, had one of the consolidated cases take three months to try before a jury (Randy's client won a seven figure judgment).

Randy enjoys all aspects of being a trial lawyer, and his record in cases reveals it. To review some of his larger case successes, hit the "results" link on the right side of this page.

Many attorneys call themselves "litigators" but that often means they fear the courtroom and merely try to "paper" the other side so they will settle quickly. Randy is proud to be a trial lawyer and believes that not being fearful of going all the way to a jury trial is often the only way to obtain justice for his clients.

Besides the areas listed on this webpage, Randy has also handled cases which are not often seen by the average practitioner such as defamation, harassment by neighbors, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, civil battery, tortious interference with contractual relations, tortious interference with prospective business advantage, subsidence and real estate disputes between adjoining land owners, party wall disputes between adjoining land owners, and adult claim of child sexual abuse involving repressed memories.

Randy has handled high-profile situations where public relations and dealing with the press was every bit as important as knowing the law.

Randy is admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the federal district court of Nevada, the federal district court for the eastern district of California, as well as all state courts in California, Nevada, and Oklahoma.
