    Randy helped me meet with firms that I otherwise would never have had the chance to interview. In the end, I had several offers from prestigious firms in the Dallas area. Moreover, he was able to place me with a firm that I had previously applied to on my own, to no avail. I am still with this firm and very happy.

    I doubt anyone is as well connected as Randy is in the Dallas legal market. Thank you for your marvelous work.
