Randi is the Argentino Family Law & Child Advocacy, LLC Community Relations Administrator. Within that capacity, Randi helps ensure that our legal team is not only helping our individual clients, but also stays involved and integrated into the community at large. Randi works to effectuate the firm’s goals of making a difference through providing training, sponsoring charity and pro bono opportunities, maintaining our social media efforts and building our relationships with other small business, organizations, and colleagues.
Randi is an outside the box thinker which makes her a perfect addition to the AFL team. Randi is also a dedicated camper with Surprise Lake Camp in NY, having spent the majority of her Summers there from childhood to adulthood.

Randi’s advocacy runs even deeper in that she’s the Mama to two amazing special needs children who keep her advocating in her “free” time as well running in multiple different directions at once after them – and she does it all with a smile!
