Read what some of Randy's client say about him:

- "Without Randy I am sure my settlement would have been far less than the settlement he successfully negotiated for me and my family." - Howard

- "I was impressed with Randy's professionalism and on-the-call service." - Ron

Case Results:

- Randy, along with fellow firm attorney Jim Lewis, successfully secured a $21 million guaranteed structured settlement, with a present value of $5.5 million in 2012 for a youngchild and her parents, after she suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident caused by a truck driver who smashed in to the family’s car.

- Randy, along with co-counsel, secured a $3.5 Million settlement for a truck accident victim's only surviving child. Randy's client was killed after a tractor trailer crashed into his car on I-64 in Norfolk, VA. The truck driver had violated several rules under the Virginia CDL. The other side recognized that they did not have a strong case and therefore offered a sizable settlement that will help the victim's young child now, and in the future.
