Randi is a family law attorney whose primary objective is to achieve her clients’ goals with compassion and zealous advocacy. Her family law practice includes divorce, support, premarital counseling, equitable distribution, custody, protection from abuse and adoption. Randi negotiates prenuptial, postnuptial and property settlement agreements, litigating in courts in Bucks County, Chester County, Delaware County, Montgomery County, Philadelphia County in Pennsylvania and throughout southern New Jersey.
Randi is an aggressive, firm and effective advocate, yet she has a practical approach to achieving the best resolution for her clients. She exercises outstanding judgment and utilizes her keen business acumen to engage in early negotiation and settlement discussions when possible. She prides herself on providing timely, responsive individualized service to her clients and takes great strides to explain the legal process and prepare her clients for all phases of litigation, court appearances, mediation and evaluations. Adding to her wide range of legal experience, Randi has personally experienced divorce first hand. As a result, she exudes patience and understanding for her clients’ and their families’ emotional transition.
Before concentrating her practice in family law, Randi was a member of Klehr’s real estate and finance department and litigation department and concentrated her practice in commercial litigation, focusing on disputes and transactions involving real estate and finance, intellectual property, shareholder disputes and business divorce, trade secrets and employment law. Her diverse and extensive legal experience outside of family law provides her clients with the additional benefit of a trial lawyer who understands a variety of complex businesses, their corporate and financial structures, tax implications and economic effects of divorce.
Before returning to Klehr Harrison in 2007, Randi served as General Counsel of an artificial turf company. In this position, she was responsible for the company’s legal affairs, including negotiating and drafting contracts, managing litigation and outside legal counsel, as well as maintaining corporate filings and managing employment issues and enforcing the company’s intellectual property rights.
