Randi McGinn is the senior partner in a five-woman, two-man law firm in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She is known for her creativity in the courtroom and her use of demonstrative evidence to visualize opening, direct, cross-examination, and closing argument. She has destroyed adverse witnesses by leaving a pretentious Beverly Hills doctor standing in front of the jury covered with post-it notes and clutching a grapefruit to his chest, by grilling a government snitch until he threw up, and by exposing the fact that a world-renowned polygraph expert had been polygraphing his own sperm cells in the dead of night. In a particularly hard-won police shooting case, the local SWAT officers once put her face on their Christmas piñata and took turns whacking it with a big stick.
Randi started her career by giving birth to daughter Heather, now age thirty-four, the day before the three-day bar examination.
Randi is the vice president of the Inner Circle of Advocates. She is double-listed in criminal and civil litigation in Best Lawyers in America, and is a fellow in the International Academy of Trial Lawyers. She is a former governor of the American Association for Justice, a past president of the New Mexico Trial Lawyers Association, and a former board member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Randi has taught trial practice for the National Institute for Trial Advocacy and the National Criminal Defense College, and has been an adjunct professor for the University of New Mexico.
