Randall S. Herriott is a partner and founding member of Reinstein, Glackin & Herriott, LLC. He concentrates his practice in the area of Family Law. Mr. Herriott is an “AV” rated attorney who, since 2013, has been recognized annually as a Maryland Super Lawyer.

Mr. Herriott is well-known for successfully representing clients in matters involving the issues of divorce, custody and visitation or access, child support, alimony, property distribution and domestic violence.  He has also successfully litigated several third-party custody actions, where non-parent relatives were granted custody of or visitation/access with their minor child relatives.

Mr. Herriott is also trained in the area of Collaborative Law, an innovative approach to resolving family law issues that fosters and promotes communication and cooperation between the parties and counsel. The Collaborative Law approach seeks a more constructive and respectful path to resolution in a manner that is private, focused on the needs of the clients and/or their children, and puts control of the outcome in the hands of the clients, rather than the courts. Additional information regarding the collaborative approach to resolving family law cases may be viewed at  and .  A lawyer trained in collaborative law often can resolve contested divorce cases quicker and with lower legal fees than divorces resolved entirely through the Courts.

The BEST Attorney Any Client Could Hope For
I was extremely satisfied with the representation I received from Randall Herriott. I was going through a very difficult child support/custody case and I hired Randy several months into my case after realizing my first attorney was not getting the job done. During my initial consultation, Randy was both professional and very knowledgeable about family law. My daughter’s father is self-employed and was not being honest about his income. Randy went above and beyond to obtain his true income and I was able to get sole physical custody and more money than I expected for child support for my daughter. I shall forever be grateful and I would definitely recommend Randall Herriott.

Ex Wife Drama
This was the second time I've dealt with the law firm I have nothing but great things to say about them. Randy was well prepared willing to help and was ready to take my case on with the ex wife drama.

Slam dunk
Randy took on my case with one day to prepare before the hearing. He hit the ground running and was up to speed on even small details necessary to make our case a slam dunk for the sitting judge. I was very impressed with how quickly he honed in on the important details in a long, complicated history with the opposing party. He was also a crack-shot at cross-examining a witness who has been described by professionals as a "master manipulator." Her tactics at misinformation and creating confusion were completely thwarted by Randy's pointed and relevant questions. He was also great at guiding me through my own testimony, keeping me on track to ensure the court was presented with a clear and honest assessment of the situation. I was so relieved to have him in my corner.

Beyond Top Notch !
Attorney Randall Herriott is without doubt the best representation you can obtain. From day one he was very in tune with every aspect of the case which took over a year to conclude because of previous counsel not taking the initiative to finish this case in a timely manner. This includes time away from my child who I was fighting for and was losing hope until FINALLY being introduced to Mr. Herriott. He took over where everything had been in limbo and controlled the positive and very progressive reunification between my child and myself. I could not thank him enough for every single thing that he did for our family. He is extremely knowledgeable of the court system and will give you nothing but the very best representation available. You will not find a better lawyer than Mr. Herriott. PERIOD. If you have a pending matter that needs real expert representation than you need to hire Mr. Herriott without hesitation. I have described him as a Samurai with words and every aspect is clearly communicated including things I never knew that were always presented in my best interest. I can't say enough to fully express how good Mr. Herriott really is, all I can say is hire him and YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY! Mr. Herriott truly is the best.

Randy was always there, accessible, and available for any questions or concerns. I'm deeply grateful to Randy and his law firm for their diligence and care. They gave my case their full attention.

Highly Recommend
Mr. Herriott was able to make a very stressful situation manageable for me. When I believed that I was facing the loss of significant time with my child, Mr. Herriott never even considered that I would have anything less than 50% custody...and achieved it! Mr. Herriott worked tirelessly to do what was right and prevent local county lawyers from not following proper process and law. Mr. Herriott quickly demonstrated that he wanted to get the case resolved, rather than draw it out to make more income. When my particular case took an unfortunate turn into alleged domestic issues, Mr. Herriott displayed that he is just as competent in that area as he is with custody and separation matters.

Outstanding Advocate for My Family
I interviewed several attorneys before searching AVVO. I came upon Randy's profile and firm (RGH Law). Randy had me hooked from the beginning with his incredible professionalism, integrity, and his ability to handle the emotions I was experiencing. My divorce turned from amicable to contentious very quickly, and Randy was there every step of the way. Because of him, I have equal time with my three children, which is more than most father's experience. Custody was most important to me, but the future financial costs were also a concern. Randy expertly guided a settlement agreement at the 11th hour and it actually turned out favorably for both parties in my case. One thing Randy told me in our initial consultation was that numerous clients came to RGH after getting a raw deal in their divorce. It is better to have the right attorney by your side throughout the process, rather than someone who wants to settle for a bad deal. I would highly recommend Randall Herriott to any area he is available to practice. I am forever greatful for his zealous advocacy and integrity regarding my family. Again, highly recommend!

Attorney and Law Firm of Choice
I never questioned my recommendation that my sister secure your firm’s services and your personal representation of her in this matter. If it were my situation, your firm would have been the firm of choice and your personal representation a condition of that choice. An outstanding firm and an outstanding attorney! Mr. Randall Herriott is the attorney of choice for Family, Divorce, and Property settlement matters. Mr. Herriott was patient and he consistently assured complex case matters were explained to my sister in such a way that assured clarity and understanding.

Very knowledgeable Expert in Family Law
When I realized that my marriage was ending and that I was going to need legal representation, I met with Randy Herriott. From our initial meeting through my final judgment of divorce I always felt well represented and comfortable in an otherwise unpleasant situation. Although family law can be emotional, in my opinion it is essential to approach the situation from a business perspective as it is a very complex legal matter. My divorce involved child custody, substantial marital assets, as well as other several factors that needed to be considered. I always felt that Randy and his staff were looking out for my best interest throughout the process. With any legal situation there are ups and downs along the way as well as periods of uncertainty. Fortunately Randy made the process as smooth as possible and was always available to answer any questions that came up. He is very responsive to phone calls and emails. It became very apparent to me how much he is respected among his peers in the field. This included other lawyers as well as therapists, mediators, court staff, etc. There are an abundance of factors to consider when dealing with a divorce. One of those factors is the cost of your legal team. Many family lawyers out there that will work for a lower hourly rate (my ex wife's lawyer was approximately 20% less expensive per hour), however I firmly believe you get what you pay for. I do not believe you will find another family lawyer in this area that provides you with better value for their service than Randy and his staff do. At the end of the process, I was 100% satisfied with the result. The agreement that was reached provided for my children's best interest 1st and foremost. It also protected my financial well being so that I am able to rebuild very quickly without an excessive financial burden to my ex wife of nearly 20 years. If you are dealing with a possible divorce and / or a custody situation, I would strongly recommend contacting Randy before you make a decision as to who your representation will be during the process.

Really Looks Out For BEST Interest!!
I interviewed 4 lawyers before I decided on Randy. His professionalism, ethics, knowledge, and listening ability was exactly what I was looking for. Being married for 25+ years, I knew it wasn't going to be easy and I wanted the best possible attorney representing my best interest and Randy did that plus! As the road got bumpy, Randy would help steer the journey straight and keep things progressing. One thing Randy advised me was to approach this as a business decision and once I understood that, it helped keep the emotional aspect minimal. Hopefully I will never need his services again in this area, but if I do, he will definitely be my first call. ONE OF THE BEST!!

Definitely One to Have on Your Side!
Mr. Herriott represented in a Custody/Child Support case in June 2011. My ex-husband and I were divorced in Japan and a Divorce Decree was issued. Three years later, he wanted to modify the decree to get more visitation and pay less than the decree stated. Mr. Herriott immediately jumped to action and took control. I felt very comfortable with him handling my case. He regularly phoned and emailed me to let me know the status of the situation, and he was very thorough in answering any questions that I had. He was very proactive in getting opposing counsel to act on items he was delinquent with. At the settlement meeting, Mr. Herriott was a force to be reckoned with. In the end, he was successful in having me granted sole legal and physical custody of my son, increasing the child support amount by $600, and meeting all of my stipulations for visitation. In the end, I only had to compromise an additional 20 hours of visitation a month. I was very relieved to have been done with the situation. Mr. Herriott's professionalism, dedication, and unswerving devotion to my case was impeccable. I could not have asked for better representation. He is definitely one you want on your side.

DEDICATED, PERSONABLE, AND INTELLIGENT
Mr. Herriott represented me in a divorce action I initiated that also involved child custody issues. While I was understandably stressed and uncertain about the outcome, my anxieties lessened as we worked together. He was always prepared for court proceedings, his strategies were well planned and executed, he always kept me informed of issues and case status, and he displayed empathy and care when times were challenging and difficult. I truly believe that the favorable/fair outcome that resulted stemmed from the unrelenting dedication, professionalism, and preparation he gives to all of his cases.

Trustworthy, knowledgeable, and hardworking
Mr. Herriott represented me in my divorce and a subsequent child custody modification. He was thorough, knowledgeable, and responsive the entire time he represented me. The guidance and counsel he provided was instrumental in my gaining the sole, legal, and primary physical custody of my 3 children. I am grateful for all of the hard work he did on my behalf and I highly recommend him.
