Claimed Lawyer ProfileResponsive Law

Randall F. Inniss is a DWI and Criminal Defense attorney who founded a boutique law firm and practices in the Hudson Valley and New York City regions. Randall has a significant, if not unique, criminal justice & police background that started with him joining the New York State Police at age 21. There he was exposed, if not immersed, to a wide-range of criminal and procedural laws as well as rigorous physical training.

While a full-time state trooper and having risen to the state police investigative ranks, Randall completed his Bachelor's Degree from Binghamton University with Honors. He thereafter attended the University at Buffalo School of Law where hesuccessfully completed his Juris Doctor & LL.M. (Masters of Laws) degrees while working full-time. During law school, Randall interned in major District Attorney's and state Attorney General's offices.

As an Investigator, Randall was assigned to numerous special assignments. He worked closely with local and federal authorities (FBI, DEA, INS, & Secret Service) in major state and federal investigations both inside and outside New York State. Randall worked in many state police's elite units and has provided expert testimony for police agencies in select areas of organized crimes and narcotics.

Randall's over 2-plus decades immersion in the criminal justice system has forged a rare knowledge, insight and experience level that is both significant and substantial. His experience benefits clients given he has key, rare insight from an officer's, investigator's and defense perspective. While testifying as an expert, Randall was exposed to intense questioning by skilled defense attorneys. This experience exposed him to how defense attorneys, prosecutor's and, of course, officers think!

After 22 years with the New York State Police, Randall accepted a position with a premier sports league, the National Basketball Association (NBA).
