Professional Background


Randy has been recognized in Time, Newsweek, Ladies Home Journal, and the Texas Lawyer as well as on CNN and NBC's Dateline for his role in uncovering the documents that led to the recall of the Firestone Radial ATX and Wilderness lines of tires. His ground breaking case against Firestone is featured in McGraw-Hill's college textbook on corporate crime entitled Criminology and the Criminal Justice System. Because of his role in important product liability cases, Randy has more recently appeared on "Fox & Friends," ABC's "Good Morning America," CNN's "American Morning," MSNBC, Fox Business News, and CNBC. He has also been consulted on current legal issues by The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Business Week, Bloomberg News, and the Associated Press.

Randy is a frequent lecturer at advanced personal injury seminars. He has spoken in the "Stalwarts' Hall of Fame" at the annual convention of the American Association for Justice as well as at their annual "Weekend With the Stars" program, where the nation's most distinguished trial attorneys are showcased. He has written numerous papers and speaks on such topics as products liability and investigating major personal injury claims.  He is one of only 16 trial attorneys in the nation to have earned the "Advanced Studies in Trial Advocacy" (ASTA) award from the National College of Advocacy because of his commitment to continuing legal education. 


 


Randy has represented clients in cases arising in Europe and the Middle East as well as across America, including Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming. He is also admitted to practice before U.S. District Courts, the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, and the U.S. Supreme Court as well as licensed to practice in all Texas Courts.


 


Randy began his legal career in 1979 in Houston with the national law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski. He returned to his home town of Tyler in 1982 to eventually form the law firm now known as Roberts & Roberts, which specializes in representing people injured by unsafe practices and products.

Randy received his Bachelors in Business Administration (B.B.A) from The University of Texas at Austin with Highest Honors in 1976, where he was named one of its "Outstanding Students."  He went on to receive his Doctorate of Jurisprudence (J.D.) from The University of Texas School of Law at Austin in 1979, where he also served on the Texas Law Review and in its Order of the Barristers.

Randy was born on December 17, 1954 and graduated from Robert E.

    Mr. Roberts is one of the most exemplary and extraordinary attorneys that I have encountered in 24 years of practice. Despite being a judge, magistrate, prosecutor, and private attorney for nearly two and a half decades, I continue to learn valuable information from his posts every day. I would highly recommend.
