LaTeigra C. Cahill is an Associate in the Las Vegas office of Randazza Legal Group (“RLG”).

Born in Brooklyn but raised in Houston, LaTeigra continued to make her way out west, and went to both undergrad and law school in San Francisco. During law school, she earned the highest grade in both Constitutional Law and Wills, Trusts, & Estates. She also interned at the First Amendment Project and served as a Marshall-Brennan Fellow for the California Constitutional Literacy Initiative, where she taught the principals of individual liberties at an Oakland high school.

Prior to joining RLG, LaTeigra worked for five years at DNA-People’s Legal Services (“DNA”), a mid-size public interest law firm in the Southwest that promotes tribal sovereignty. She represented clients in Navajo Nation tribal courts and New Mexico courts in a variety of civil and domestic matters, including consumer law, landlord/tenant, and family law cases. She also drafted wills and trusts for Navajo tribal members with complex estate issues related to the status of Indian lands.

LaTeigra started as a Staff Attorney at DNA, and was promoted to the position of Managing Attorney of the Northern New Mexico regional office. She then worked as a Project Director, where she oversaw special policy projects and managed multiple attorneys working on the Navajo Nation Reservation. LaTeigra also taught Federal Indian Law and the Federal Rules of Evidence as an Adjunct Professor at San Juan College in Northern New Mexico.

LaTeigra joined RLG in 2016 and is delighted to be able to apply her perspective and experience working in public interest to the protection of constitutional and intellectual property rights. LaTeigra has always had a passion for the First Amendment and has been actively involved with the First Amendment Lawyers’ Association for longer than she has been a lawyer: she attended her first meeting while still in law school in 2009. In her free time, she enjoys live theater and exploring the magnificent parks of the Southwest.
