About A. Randall

Learn A. Randall’s areas of practice.

I grew up on Long Island, New York, and earned my undergraduate degree in communications from Michigan State University in 1981. From there, I returned to Long Island where I became involved in the business of commercial real estate.  Despite attaining success in this work, I felt unfulfilled as a person. Although I was always a sympathizer for the underdog and the downtrodden, I found myself having an increased desire to become more actively involved with reaching out and assisting good people being bulldozed by the system.


I decided to do something about the void I was experiencing. I had a deep desire to prevent injustices and I felt a calling to prevent the government’s abuse of authority. I decided to pursue this calling by becoming an attorney. 

 

I attended Nova Southeastern Law School (originally named Nova Law School) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida with the intention of becoming a criminal defense lawyer upon receiving my degree. I graduated law school in 1986 and was immediately hired as a public defender in Broward County, Florida.  It was there that I was able to hone my skills as a trial attorney and gain invaluable experience representing individuals charged with virtually crime imaginable. In my thirteen year tenure as a public defender, I was the lead attorney in over seventy-five jury trials, both misdemeanors and felonies, from DUI's to first degree murders.

Upon leaving the Public Defender's Office in 1999, I opened my own law office. I have continued to represent clients at virtually every level in the criminal justice system, both in state and federal court, over the past sixteen years in private practice. 


I have now been a criminal defense lawyer, and a champion of justice, for almost three decades. My passion for defending the accused has never diminished and has continued to flourish.  To this day I fight to defend those in need of protection from a system that often times seems to have run amuck.  I work tirelessly to make every effort imaginable to obtain for my clients a second chance. I personally assure each and every client that I represent that they will receive high energy, aggressive and passionate representation, and that they will always be able to contact their attorney. 


I take pride in my close and regular communication with my clients, thorough investigations of every case, and an aggressive and zealous protection of my client's rights.   Once you become my client, work will commence immediately in order to ensure that you have the best chance possible for a successful resolution of all your criminal charges.  My level of success over the years speaks for itself as does my reputation in the legal community as a tough and fearless warrior who  goes to the front line and into the trenches whenever necessary to attain a successful result for my client.

Professionalism and dedication to the excellence
Mr. Haas clearly possesses foundational knowledge of the legal system and the legal information sources. He gathered information through effective and efficient manner. Definitely he always made clear the ethical and unethical uses of information, and understands the legal issues associated with the discovery, use, or application of information in my case. I noticed a very efficient method of organization of documents and research in an orderly manner. He Resolved all my questions posed and provided me with sufficient support for the conclusions reached. He made a very critical difference of my future, his level of legal counseling helped me to stay positive pretty much in all stages of my case.

Battery Touch or Strike
He took bold action to help me and contacted right away the state's prosecutor to drop the case, a first degree misdemeanor. The end result was that the state decided to drop the case.

Case Dismissed
We hired Randall Haas to handle our son's arrest, which included representation in court. He took the time to explain in detail the nature of the legal proceedings that we would likely encounter and the legal strategy and options at our disposal, gave us advice, and made himself accessible via cell if we ever had any questions. Mr. Haas proved to be knowledgeable and professional. In addition, his assistant (Zelda) was helpful, communicative and responsive. Due to Mr. Haas' competence in court, he was ultimately able to have the case resolved to our satisfaction.

An Attorney Unique in Professionalism, Brillance and Compassion
I am extremely impressed and satisfied with Mr. Haas’ execution of his role as my attorney. Since words fail me to relate his many virtues, especially how he digs deeply and finds the truth, I will declare that he is very understanding, compassionate, knowledgeable, and ethical. Throughout the case, I found him to be a most dependable and professional attorney who goes the extra mile for his clients, while maintaining his strong ethical standards. Mr. Haas has never failed to be prompt in all correspondence, and kept us informed every step of the way. My pillow is no longer stained by my tears. Once again my family feels valued and respected. Most of all I have my life back. Mr. Haas really had my back! I implore you; if you need a brilliant and dedicated attorney who will listen, care and defend…you have found him. Get in touch with Allan Randall Haas NOW!

Great lawyer, ethical and compassionate.
Mr. Haas provided me with effective legal representation after false allegations led to my arrest. He effectively dealt with the clearly perjured statements made against me, and the negligent, implicitly biased investigation by the Broward Sheriffs Office detective. I would recommend Mr. Haas to anyone seeking an effective, ethical criminal defense attorney.
