Randall was born in Seattle and spent his upbringing equally in Seattle and Gold Bar (that is a real place – Google can confirm). Attending a private school in Seattle and being raised by a single parent on the Skykomish river made him quite aware of socioeconomic inequality as well as the struggles families face regardless of income or background. After graduating from Lakeside School in Seattle, he received his Bachelor's at the University of Washington, double majoring in Political Science and Law, Societies & Justice and leading their chess club for a couple years. He graduated from the University of Washington School of Law.
In law school, he interned with TeamChild, Washington Appleseed, and the Center for Children & Youth Justice (CCYJ). He also worked in the UW Law Children and Youth Legislative Advocacy Clinic (CAYLAC) with a quintet of his classmates to create and ultimately lobby for the successful passage of SB 6074, the Homeless Children Education Act (HCEA). He joined Elise Buie Family Law Group in February 2015.
Randall practices dependency law, representing parents of children who have been removed from their families by Child Protective Services. His favorite parts of the job include helping families reunite, advocating for incarcerated parents to maintain meaningful roles in their children's' lives, holding the State accountable for their duties to work toward reunification, and empowering parents to have their voice heard in an intimidating and frustrating system.
He married his longtime partner and high school sweetheart in June 2014. They welcomed their first son Wyatt to the world in October 2015 and their second son Jackson in May 2018. They live together in Seattle.
Randall enjoys exploring Seattle's bike routes, escaping to the Olympic Peninsula to visit family, and most of all, spending time with his wife and sons. He is an avid reader, chess player, fantasy football general manager, music collector and diehard Oakland Raiders fan (we try not to hold that against him).
