Randi M. Wilde is from Lincoln County, North Carolina, and at the age of five years old expressed her desire to become a Supreme Court Justice.  Randi is a graduate of The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  After graduation, Randi chose to stay in Chapel Hill to serve the community as police officer for the Chapel Hill Police Department.  During her tenure there, she served on the Domestic Violence Response and Sexual Assault Response Teams.  Through her work in domestic violence investigations and being the first responder on emergency calls involving domestic disagreements, custody issues, and at times violence, Randi decided that was her calling. Her goal was to help those who were experiencing difficult times and often felt hopeless in resolving any issue surrounding conflicts of this type.  From being a child of divorce and having close family members who battled drug abuse and alcoholism, she has an insider’s view of many of the sources that cause families to have such difficulties.  She was honored with a Meritorious Service Award and a Medal of Honor during her seven-year career as an officer.

Her passion for the law has been steadfast and she left the Chapel Hill Police Department to attend law school at Charlotte School of Law.  Randi began the part-time evening program so she could remain active in law practice and work as a full-time paralegal.  During school she was the President of the Charlotte Law Professionals (formerly Part-Time Students Association), served as committee chair for fundraising in Phi-Alpha Delta Fraternity, and was selected as a member of the Order of the Crown.  After graduating Cum Laude from Charlotte School of Law, Randi continues to work for The Law Office of Tia G. Hartley, PLLC, as a full-time paralegal with the hopes of becoming a future associate.  Randi would like to practice in family law and criminal defense.
