McGinn Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame

Recognizing Randi McGinn's Induction into the Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame

MMLCS, PA congratulates senior partner Randi McGinn for her induction into the 2024 National Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame in Las Vegas, Nevada last week.

The Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame, located at the Beasley School of Law, Temple University, recognizes individuals who have made lasting contributions to the legal profession and society. Inductees are celebrated for their commitment to the principles of justice, their service to the public, and their efforts to uphold the Constitution. McGinn's induction into this esteemed group is a testament to her impactful career and her role as a dedicated advocate for her clients.

Representing thousands of clients over her four decade career, Ms. McGinn has tried over 137 cases to verdict, losing only 7. Many of her landmark cases have resulted in significant safety changes in government policies and by corporations who violated the public trust. As one example, while representing clerks injured or killed while working alone in late night convenience stores, she and the firm changed the law in New Mexico, to require security protections for workers, including having two clerks or a clerk and a security guard on duty late at night. This aspect of her work underscores the broader impact that dedicated legal professionals can have beyond the courtroom.

She has had an enviable string of fascinating cases. With her partners, Elicia Montoya and Mike Sievers, she was appointed the special prosecutor in the first criminal prosecution of two Albuquerque police officers for the shooting of homeless camper, James Boyd. In 2019, she and Mr. Sievers won the largest verdict ever against a semi-trailer manufacturer which chose not to add side underride guards to its trailers, which would have prevented the death of 16-year-old Riley Hein, who died when his passenger car became trapped under the “kill zone” under the side of the trailer. At the request of the late Governor Bill Richardson, she applied for a posthumous pardon for William Bonney, better known to the world as Billy the Kid. In 2023, she was awarded the California Trial Lawyer of the Year Award for obtaining justice in federal court for the wrongful death of Ugandan woman’s rights advocate Esther “Essie” Nakajjigo.

As we acknowledge Randi McGinn's induction into the Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame, we celebrate her contributions to the legal field and her unwavering dedication to justice. Her career serves as an inspiring example for legal professionals everywhere, reminding us of the importance of dedication, integrity, and the pursuit of justice in our work.
