Randolph Even, Esq. brings over 40 years of legal experience to his dispute resolution practice. Following a remarkable career as a litigator handling a wide variety of tort and general liability matters, with a specialty in medical malpractice, elder abuse and complex medical issues, he turned his focus to alternative dispute resolution and since then has been helping parties resolve their disputes. He is now serving as a full-time neutral.
To achieve the highest rank of diplomate in the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), Mr. Even has tried to verdict more than 125 cases of all types, including medical malpractice, elder or dependent adult abuse, assault and battery, motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, product liability, business litigation, and other general liability matters. Only 4% of ABOTA members have achieved the rank of diplomate which requires a minimum of 100 jury trials to verdict.
For more than 30 years, Mr. Even has acted as a mediator, arbitrator, or settlement officer in over 1,000 cases and has achieved an impressive rate of resolution through his persistence and practice of following up on a case long after the mediation session is over. Highly respected by his peers on both sides of the bar, he is often described as being exceptionally well-prepared and the consummate professional.
Mr. Even has been inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and has been named a “Super Lawyer” several times by Los Angeles magazine.
As part of Mr. Even’s additional education service, he has been on the faculty of programs to train new or less experienced attorneys to try cases. This includes being on the faculty of the Jack Daniels ABOTA Trial School for more than 20 years. He has served as a demonstrator and lecturer for “Masters in Trial” and “Masters in Cross-Examination”, which are programs sponsored by ABOTA. He has also served for many years as a judge for Trial Mock Court Competition for the American Association for Justice (AAJ) and at the UCLA Undergraduate Mock Trial Competition.
Mr. Even has lectured frequently at local hospitals, law schools, and bar association on numerous topics including medical malpractice, and civility in the profession and ethics.
