  • Jeffrey Larkin Wertz

    I recently had the pleasure of seeing Randy Barnhart try a case in my local jurisdiction. I can say without hesitation that he is a true professional and a heck of a fine trial lawyer. I would recommend him highly.

  • Bradley Davis Barbin

    I endorse this lawyer. Randy is an exceptionally thorough attorney. He does not fold up his tent when well healed defendants bury him in discovery. He just digs his way out and makes them pay. Brad Barbin, Columbus, Ohio
