He focuses his practice on complex financial litigation, often representing clients in matters involving complicated valuation issues, privately held business interests, venture capital, private equity, real estate, equity compensation, and fiduciary duties. He represents a diverse array of family law clients from high-profile artists and entrepreneurs to stay-at-home parents before public and private judges.
Whether through litigation or negotiated settlements, Randy understands the unique aspects of each case and marshals creative problem solving to obtain favorable outcomes.

His direct and practical approach in pre-divorce counseling, litigation, or consulting with clients engaged in mediation helps his clients achieve the best result in the most efficient and cost-effective manner.
Randy earned his J.D. from the University of San Francisco School of Law after serving as a family law paralegal for ten years. After graduating law school, Randy spent six years at a top-tier family law firm where he litigated property, support, and custody disputes. He has been selected as a Northern California Super Lawyer—Rising Star® every year since 2017.
