I am the owner and founding member of the Law Office of John Randolph. I graduated summa cum laude (with the highest honors) from Gonzaga School of Law, was an editor of the Gonzaga Law Review, and a member of the Gonzaga Moot Court Honors Council. In law school, I was on the Dean’s list every single semester, and was awarded multiple CALI awards for excellence (Top Student in a Class), including Evidence, which is an essential topic for any litigator. I also have an undergraduate degree in business management.

I have handled the following types of cases in the civil litigation arena: negligence torts, premises liability, wrongful death and survivor claims, defamation claims, large loss injury cases (multiple wrongful death cases, amputations, serious brain injuries, and major surgical cases), professional liability claims including medical malpractice defense, contract disputes, intentional torts, dog bite claims, dram-shop liability claims, road design claims, and product defect claims. Prior to law school, I worked as a litigation insurance adjuster and resolved over 1000 personal injury cases in this role. I have jury trial experience in large loss cases including wrongful death, serious spinal fractures, and medical malpractice.

I also actively practice family law, which includes divorces, third-party custody, domestic violence protection orders, parenting plans, child support, and legal separations and have obtained significant favorable results for my family law clients.

While I never guarantee results, I often obtain outstanding results for my clients as a result of my hard work and thinking about the best angles for each specific case. I have been a speaker at numerous CLE's, which are continuing legal education for lawyers. I have also been in Spokane Coeur D'alene living for being a top attorney in the area for multiple years.

I am an IronMan triathlete, an Eagle Scout, and an avid fisherman. I am motivated, determined, smart, competitive, and would like to hear about your potential case if you are interested in my services.

Best attorney in the Business
John Randolph assisted me greatly. He provided me such clear guidance,was patient and understanding in my case. He provided such good direction and confidence within myself and my case regarding it's outcome and even provided a better almost unheard of outcome that benefited myself to such an extent I feel I'm forever in his debt, how ever on that note this attorney was affordable and caring in my financial needs. I would give 10 stars if I could and always go back to him if the case was under the services he provides. His staff also is amazing as well, and also just as kind.

John was amazing for my case. Not only did I win my case, but it wasn’t even close. He is amazing at what he does and I couldn’t recommend anyone more. John was incredibly kind to me and sharing details for my restraining order was comfortable and I knew I was talking to someone who cared/wanted the best for me. You couldn’t hire anyone better!

Hire John Randolph. Don’t think about it, just do it.
I am a small business owner, I went through a divorce with a woman who physically abused me, we had a child and I went through 2 different lawyers before finding John. Understand me when I say this, this man is pure love and light. Whatever your case, whatever your situation, John randolph will hear you out, believe you, and fight for you. And not charge you an arm and a leg, even though he should because he is a very good lawyer and can win your case. You ever see the show Goliath? John is billy bob Thornton, do you, and your family a favor and hire John. I hope that if you’re reading my review, and you feel hopeless, you feel like you’re losing, you believe me when I say hire this man. If everything is negative In your life, do one positive thing. Hire John Randolph. One of my favorite rap artists is tee grizzly, in his words “they praying on my downfall, I paid no attention I stood tall” John is the man to get you to stand tall again. And be there for your family. He understands we are all human and make mistakes, and he still stands by you. He helps individuals such as myself, spend your money wisely, and hire a lawyer who cares. Every day. Johns legal staff is also incredible, they answer night and day. They work tirelessly for his clients. You get results, you get sound, clear, legal representation that in my opinion is the best money can buy.

Nicest lawyer ever!
My 12 year relationship with my boyfriend had ended and I was trying to get him out of my house. I went online for some legal counsel and John’s name came up. He called me and we had a nice, thorough consultation. I found him to be very kind, honest, and very easy to talk to. He even followed up with a call to see how things were going a couple weeks later. I would hire him in an instant.

I called John for a strange situation. John listened to me patiently, offered insight, went above and beyond immediately contacting the other party to figure out what was going on and gave me an update immediately with very helpful information. I highly appreciate his service, and would return to his service if needed.

John was a Godsend
John helped me so much. I was involved in a civil litigation pro se, and he came in about halfway through. John always spoke to me with respect and always did what he said. He goes way above and beyond what I expected from a lawyer. He calls to check in if he doesn’t hear from you in a while, he works much faster than I’ve ever seen a lawyer work, and he is fair with his hours when he finally bills you. There were a couple of times that he advised me of faster alternatives that could save me time and money. He could have taken advantage of my ignorance, but he didn’t. He even has a calming effect when he speaks to you. I have the utmost respect for John and his practice. I would recommend him to anyone.

John's expertise, collaborative & action-oriented approach produced results in short order
I was in need of defense help, with little time to work with. John took my case in short order and hit it out of the park. He used his expertise, resourcefulness and strategic thinking as a pinpoint focus on problem-solving. He was patient in explaining my options with a collaborative approach. Some attorneys can make you feel stupid, as if you're just another layman on the outside looking in, which can make you feel as if you're at the mercy of the system -- but he did just the opposite -- laying out possible scenarios, but allowing me to be part of the process and making me comfortable with realistic expectations. We received the most favorable outcome as a result of his approach and solid defense, which I must emphasize was accomplished in a very short span of time. John also kept me at ease with his great sense of humor. I really appreciated having him in my corner and working with him, and give him the highest recommendation.

Spokane’s new super hero.
I came to John Randolph last fall for a domestic violence help. I was scared and I felt alone. John took his time to listen to me and made me feel safe. When my court day came not only was John fully prepared, he made me feel protected and helped me stay strong. I would highly recommend John for a consult or legal action that you may have. Not only is he’s Spokane’s new hero but my hero as well.

Thoughtful Calculator
I hired John in the background of my divorce to help me text and email my ex. He is worth every dollar and truly cares about his clients. My ex does not know John is in the background. John is a very smart person and able play 3d chess in his advice. I will contact him for any legal problem I have.

A very good experience
John handled my divorce case, including a lengthy negotiation. At every step of the way, he was friendly and helpful, and all my questions were answered. The outcome of the negotiation was better than I had hoped for. I would hire him again if I ever need legal help in the future.
Response from John Randolph February 17, 2020
Thank you! I put my heart in soul into each and every case I have. Thank you for the kind words.
