About Don & The Firm

don_randles_headshot_medPrior to my admission in court, I was a senior contracts administrator for the Santa Barbara Research Center, a subsidary of Hughes Aircraft Company. I was responsible for government contracts pertaining to the Star Wars programs.

I entered private practice in Santa Fe, New Mexico working primarily in litigation and handled criminal, tax and civil cases. I opened a law office in Arizona and handled a federal practice, including tax and bankruptcy itigation, criminal, corporate and trust matters. I was then admitted to the Supreme Court of Nevada in 1991 and relocated to Las Vegas and began practicing in immigration matters. I am currently Of Counsel to the Law Offices of James J. Regan.

I have been blessed throughout my life by being exposed to men and women of different cultures who speak different languages, worship in different religious structures, and emanate out of different social structures. Many years ago, I realized a dream of mine after I had practiced law for a while, to enter the area of immigration law and work relatively full time helping and assisting people from all over the world.

As such I came to believe in this:

We all have a right to be here to live and enjoy
life to its fullest. We are all in this experience
together. We should love each other and
realize we are all God’s kids.
