About Randy

Hello my name is Randy and I am a second year law student attending an ABA school in San Diego. My educational background includes a bachelors degree in the field of Sociology from the University of Nevada Las Vegas. My work experience includes years of customer service in both the retail setting as well as 5 years working for a successful law firm in Long Beach, California. Two passions that I have always had are the Law and the game of Chess. In high school a group of my friends and I decided to start a chess club which is ironic since we were all football players who were judged not to have any intellectual interests. I learned the game of chess rather quickly and have always enjoyed competitive play as well as teaching others how to play. Chess is a very intelligent game that increases creativity and I welcome the opportunity to teach both adults and children how to play the game.

Law school is very challenging and can be a stressful and scary experience for students interested in one day becoming attorneys. Law school is also a very rewarding experience in learning the law and taking steps to find the area of practice a student wishes to pursue. Future law students who are seriously interested in attending law school can benefit from pre-law school tutoring to learn the basics of what to expect from a legal education. I welcome the opportunity to share some of my law school experience and study methods for future students to gain a head start among their fellow law school students. There is nothing wrong with being a step ahead and I welcome the opportunity to those wishing to attend law school.
