About Randall

Learn Randall’s areas of practice.

Fairfax Trial Attorney Randall Sousa uses his vast experience, passion, and charisma to achieve the best results for his clients. Randall holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Miami and Juris Doctorate from St. Thomas University School of Law. Upon graduating from the University of Miami in 1995, Randall moved to Washington, D.C. to accept a position at the internationally renowned law firm Debevoise & Plimpton. At Debevoise, Randall provided case-specific discovery support during the Department of Justice’s 1996 Campaign Finance investigation of the Democratic National Committee. This investigation ultimately spawned one the most comprehensive intergovernmental discovery disputes of the decade. During this time, Randall played a crucial role in identifying and locating relevant and responsive information which ultimately exonerated the DNC of any wrongdoing.

Randall’s high-caliber work at Debevoise caused the DNC to take notice, and in 1997, the DNC hired Randall to assist in the implementation of a strategic alternative algorithm which would allow for more efficient tracking of campaign financing contributions. In 2001, Randall left the DNC and transitioned into the the entertainment industry where he accepted a position at S.E.R. International Talent Agency. While at S.E.R., Randall served as a personal manager and business consultant to a number of Grammy Award-winning Latin musicians. In his capacity as a manger, Randall was intricately involved in the negotiation of major record deals; the coordination of concerts, live performances, and album releases; as well as public relations, crises management, and media consultancy.

In 2008, Randall left the entertainment industry to pursue his law degree at St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami Gardens, Florida. During this time, Randall worked at the Miami-Dade State's Attorney Office and later served as a Law Clerk to the Honorable Leon Fritel of Florida's Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court. Subsequent to receiving his law degree, Randall drew upon his professional relationships and media experience to provide crisis management and public relations consultancy services to clients involved in high-profile lawsuits. Randall has also provided consultancy and technological support to a major professional sports league during their high-profile investigation into the use of performance enhancing drugs by a number of professional athletes.

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. Sousa's website says he is aggressive and affordable and that is exactly what he is. But he is also very friendly and helpful. He was able to assist me after I was injured in a car accident. The matter was settled very quickly and Randy got me a lot more than I expected to get. I have never met a lawyer I trusted or liked until I met Randy. If I ever have a legal problem, he is the first person I'll call and I tell everyone else I know with a legal problem to do the same. He is nothing short of amazing.

Helpful, Considerate, Kind
I had an issue that had been eating away at me, and Randal was able to advise me on my situation in a way that was well explained, helpful and helped ease my worries. If this guy is even half as helpful outside a just a consult, you've got the right guy in your corner.
Response from Randall Sousa July 12, 2017

Helped Clear My Son in an Investigation Concerning an After School Fight
I obtained Mr. Sousa's help when my 15 year old son and his friends were accused of beating up another student. He was suspended from school until the police investigated what happened. When the police showed up at our house to question him I called Randy and we met with Randy the next day. After Randy spoke to the police and my son's school principal I was told my son was no longer under investigation. Randy was kind and very funny and even though I had been worried, he made me feel like everything would work out and that this was no big deal. He was right.

Not professional unprepared
I hired this lawyer in my custody case, he didn’t show my evidences, don’t give any recommendations for my trial day, difficult to reaching. I lost my case
Response from Randall Sousa March 14, 2019
There is no "winning" or "losing" in a custody case. The court makes its decision based on the best interests of the children. I am not going to be more specific than necessary, but your actions in removing your children to another county without the court's permission was considered to be a factor which we couldn't mitigate. All the other "evidence" you wanted me to show - which I didn't - was irrelevant and harassing. With all that said, under any form of analysis, you didn't "lose" your case at all.
