Randy grew up in Nampa and is now proud to provide legal services to people throughout the Treasure Valley.

Prior to joining Skaug law, Randy practiced insurance defense, employment and labor law and construction law for some of the best firms in Idaho.

He has successfully represented clients in trial and on appeal to the Idaho Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Through his background as an insurance defense attorney, Randy represented insurance companies and worked closely with adjusters.
