Randy Grove has been with Landerholm, P.S. since he began practicing law in 1982. His breadth of knowledge and experience in the trust and estates field earned him election to the exclusive American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC), an invitation to present at the Heckerling Estate Planning Institute, and a host of other professional honors. However, it is the everyday feedback from clients who appreciate his counsel that drives his dedication.

An avid reader, Randy has been influenced by the biographies of notable men and women. He acknowledges a personal source of inspiration in the example set by his mentor, Irwin C. Landerholm. “Irwin had a high level of expertise, business savvy, commitment to serve others, and a depth of compassion and understanding for people,” he says.

Irwin had a high level of expertise . . . I want to emulate his example.
