Born and raised in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, attorney Randall Nazette returned home to practice law after graduating from Drake University Law School. In 1975 he was admitted to practice in the Iowa Supreme Court, and joined the firm his father, Richard Nazette, helped to found. In his nearly forty years as an attorney, Randall has concentrated his practice in the areas of business and incorporation law, real estate law, estate planning and probate law. In addition to transactional work, Randall provides numerous clients with advisory services, including serving as general counsel for many businesses throughout eastern Iowa.

The scope of Randall's practice finds him working with individuals and families on estate planning and asset protection planning, helping them to preserve what they've worked hard to achieve for their families' future. He also regularly guides families through the complex and sometimes overwhelming probate process.

On the business end of his practice, Randall works with a wide range of companies, ranging from small family businesses and non-profit organizations to banks and corporations. He assists his clients with incorporation, stock purchases, buy-sell agreements, ownership transfer between generations, real estate purchases, transactional needs and general counsel needs. Business clients know that Randy's experience will enable him to guide their companies as they evolve and change.

Randall's practice areas require that he spends significant time with his clients, helping to identify their goals, both personal and professional. Over the years, the relationships he has developed with his clients have allowed him to understand and to anticipate their needs, customizing solutions for their particular circumstances and goals. Clients appreciate his depth and breadth of experience and ability to craft solutions to even the most challenging situations. Randall takes particular pride in understanding a client's vision for their business and helping the vision come together in reality.

Having received personal and professional support from the Cedar Rapids area, Randall is dedicated to giving back to his community. He takes great satisfaction in serving the community’s legal needs and volunteering his time and energy to organizations such as Tanager Place, Jane Boyd Community House and the Linn County Young Lawyers Association.
