Randy is a seasoned trial lawyer with a passion for helping people in difficult situations. He has been trying cases since 1972 and has argued cases before the Oregon Supreme Court and made appearances before the United States Supreme Court. As the Senior Partner of Pickett Dummigan McCall LLP, Randy continues to work tirelessly on behalf of his clients to achieve justice for injured people and their families.
Before he started his career in law, J. Randolph Pickett worked as a forklift driver. He also had the opportunity to work on the railroad. His job involved jumping from train to train and crawling under rail cars to make sure everything was in working order. His forklift training and experience on the railroad give him a first-hand understanding of the dangers workers often face.
Randy now works on all types of personal injury and wrongful death cases in both the trial court and appellate courts throughout the Northwest. Randy has not forgotten his roots and he has a special affinity for victims of workplace injuries. He has developed a national reputation for handling catastrophic injury cases involving industrial equipment and is often asked by other attorneys to help them with their cases. Randy has argued cases around the country in some of the biggest cities in the United States (New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles). Other personal injury lawyers have even complimented Randy for being “fearless” because of his willingness to take tough cases on behalf of deserving clients and for fighting to make good law.
When he isn’t at the office, Randy likes to run, bicycle, and play guitar. Randy is also an avid bridge player and he and his wife regularly compete in various tournaments around the United States. Randy also has an evening job; he is a babysitter for his grandchildren and he can be found helping them assemble train tracks in his living room.
