Who We Are

RANDAZZA LEGAL GROUP is a group of attorneys committed to serving clients in sensitive positions, protecting free speech and adding value to your business.

Your business is about making money and taking care of your family — not about your lawyers. We take the time to study your business and our role in it so that we can add value, not just send you bills.

We represent clients on a wide array of First Amendment issues, copyright and trademark protection and infringement cases, defamation cases, domain name disputes and employment law matters. Above all else, we handle these matters in a way that make clients proud to associate with us.


First Amendment

When someone tries to do harm to the First Amendment, we get upset. We seek to preserve the First Amendment and protect free speech rights, however small or persecuted the speaker. If someone has threatened your First Amendment rights, we are likely up to the job.

Internet Law

Legal issues can arise from using the internet in business. You may become a target for legal action, others may violate your intellectual property rights, or attempt to profit off your labor by poaching related or similar domain names. We will help you stay apprised of such problems before they arise and avoid any legal issues, so you can legally and effectively run your business

Adult Entertainment Business

Where the sensibilities of normal business law end in the adult realm, we’re here to offer our expertise to ensure that your operation is not only productive, but compliant and ahead of the legal issues it may face.

Intellectual Property

Whether you require a copyright, trademark or patent, our team of experienced attorneys are here to help protect your creations both in the United States and globally.

Domain Name Law

We have successfully represented clients seeking to protect their domain name interests by stripping others of confusingly similar domain names registered in bad faith and retaining domain names that others have wrongly sought to take away. We are dedicated to seeing that the domain names belong to their rightful owner.

Protection of Erotic Expression

We have a depth and breadth of experience defending clients with products in various sectors of the adult entertainment industry. Whether your focus is on live entertainment, internet content, devices, distribution or another facet of this wide-reaching sector, we have the tools to serve you.

Gaming & Gambling

Gaming, whether online gaming or console video games, or in the form of gambling, is an area fraught with legal peril. We are available to advise and counsel you. By carefully examining the steps you must take in proceeding, we can preserve your interests and help you avoid potential conflicts.


Defending defamation suits is one of our areas of greatest involvement. We defend these suits nationwide and have handled high-profile cases. While we primarily serve defendants, we are willing to consider select plaintiff cases. We do not take cases against the media.

Civil Rights

We are strongly committed to ensuring your rights are given the protection they are guaranteed by the Constitution. We believe that a society is judged by how it treats its weakest, most underrepresented and least popular members, and take extra pains so that people in those categories are not harmed by laws put forth by the majority.

Revenge Porn

We are proud to serve victims of the abhorrent practice of revenge porn. We have been on the frontlines of the fight against revenge porn and nonconsensual pornography since its earliest days.
