Raised on a family cattle ranch along the Bear River in southeast Idaho, Randy’s strong ethic for hard work and responsibility has translated into success as an attorney. He has long-held Martindale-Hubbell’s AV rating, awarded to attorneys whose peers rank their ethical standards and legal ability at the highest level. With more than three decades of experience, a deep knowledge of his core practice areas, and trust from the legal community, Randy has a proven ability to effectively and efficiently resolve legal problems that confront his clients. Between ranching, fishing and hunting, Randy developed an early appreciation for natural resources. His legal career followed the same path, focusing on real estate and natural resource transactions and development. He now advises some of eastern Idaho’s largest irrigation and agriculture and mining enterprises, including Monsanto Company, Hess Pumice Products, Inc, Idaho Ground Water Appropriators, Aberdeen-Springfield Canal Company, Gehring Agri-Business, and Koompin Farms. Randy is lead counsel in the ongoing monumental water disputes between surface and ground water users across southern Idaho, representing several ground water districts made up of businesses, municipalities, and farmers that irrigate nearly a million acres. His results-oriented approach to solving legal problems, and his ability to sort through complex legal issues and focus on the things that matter, has enabled ground water users to avoid curtailment despite multiple threats, ongoing litigation, and the worst drought in recorded Idaho history. Randy also enjoys the personal connections that are built through strategic business and estate planning. Over the years he has organized businesses and prepared estate and succession plans for hundreds of farmers, ranchers, small businessmen and families. He understands that the maxim “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is especially germane to these events. View More ›
