A Lifetime of Service
My entire adult life has been dedicated to serving others. I have a long history of helping,
teaching, educating & protecting others in a variety of arenas including injury law, law
enforcement, and martial arts.
I served the Indianapolis public as a decorated Police Captain, police academy instructor and
SWAT team commander all while attending law school.
As Karate Sensei, it was my pleasure to serve by teaching self-defense karate to hundreds of
Indiana police, adults, children & to those disabled - changing lives. A 6th Degree Black Belt
certification qualified me to serve the city and state as Karate Commissioner for the World
Police & Fire Games.
As an injury lawyer since 1985, I continue to proudly, ethically and aggressively serve the
community by protecting the rights of those wrongfully injured. Serving others is ‘who I am’ and
my deep-rooted Christian faith requires me to ‘do the right thing’ in all aspects of my life.
Having a servant’s heart is why I became an Injury Lawyer.
Shaped by Service as a Police Officer
Randy grew up in Rossford Ohio, a suburb of Toledo, as the oldest of nine children in his family.
He attended Rossford High School, was the senior class president, captain of the varsity
football, track and wrestling team and is name to the “Rossford High Athletic Hall of Fame.”
From there he attended Western Kentucky University on a football scholarship and ultimately
finished his undergrad studies at the University of Indianapolis.
In 1973, he fulfilled his lifelong dream of becoming a police officer, and he made the most of his
opportunity by rising to the rank of Captain and SWAT Commander for the Marion County
Sheriff’s Office and was assigned as Master Police Instructor at the Police Academy both for
MCSD and for the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy.
Over the course of his law enforcement career, Randy attained numerous honors, awards and

- Receiving the “Police Officer of the Year” award from the City of Indianapolis.
In 1984, Randy graduated from the University of Indiana School of Law in Indianapolis and
embarked on his new career as a lawyer in 1985. For a number of years, he remained as a
police officer/Captain while a lawyer with his own firm until sadly retiring from his law
enforcement family in 1990 to practice law full-time. From the start, he has focused his legal
practice exclusively on representing accident and injury victims. “Law enforcement shaped my character,” Randy says, “and from those years, I gained valuable accident investigation skills
that I still employ today in seeking compensation for my clients.”
Inspired by Faith, Family and Martial Arts
Fortunately for him he says, Randy enjoyed a Christian upbringing as a child and young man and
is a lifelong practicing Catholic. He attributes this training as the basis of all of his Core Values
which demand integrity and in “doing the right thing” both in his personal life as well in his
professional capacity when representing his many clients. He is a long-time member of the
Christian Legal Society and constantly strives to meet the challenges as they come along when
attempting to balance Christian principles and the Law. Randy has always had a deep spiritual
faith, reflected in his law firm’s logo, and maintains his family as his top priority which includes
his law enforcement family.
He has been married to his wife, Regina Sevenish, Office Administrator of Sevenish Law, for
over 40 years. They have two daughters, Alyssa and Abby. They also recently became proud
grandparents and now have two grandsons. Alyssa is married to Steve Rose and their son is
Orion; and, Abby is married to John Campbell and their son is Wyatt. Randy and Regina
regularly attend church and are members of the Saints Francis & Clare Catholic Church in
While he has been inspired “to do the right thing” by his faith and his family, he has also been
influenced by his participation in martial arts.
Randy holds a Master Rank (6th-Degree Black Belt) in Isshinryu Karate and is a member of the
World Karate Union & Martial Arts Masters Hall of Fame. He has passed on his self-defense
skills to thousands of Indiana law enforcement officers and citizens, earning recognition from
U.S. Martial Arts Business Information Magazine as one of the top 100 martial arts instructors in
Sensei Sevenish and his wife Regina ran two highly successful martial arts schools while
practicing law for well over a decade and trained numerous students and police to a high level
including National or World Karate Champions – including both daughters. His karate dojo was
the first the introduce nationally a competition division for those karate students suffering MS
and confined to a wheelchair that he entitled the “Special Abilities Division” and is one of his
and Regina’s proudest moments.
“It’s a hobby that embodies everything that I and Sevenish Law stand for: Integrity, honor and
discipline – and aggressively bringing the fight to the opponent,” he says. “Make no mistake – a
personal injury claim is a fight!”
And because of his national martial arts reputation and 6th -Degree Black Belt Master rating he
was asked to serve as Karate Commissioner for the Indianapolis when it hosted the “World Police & Fire Games” – a competition of law enforcement and fire fighting professionals from
throughout the world and second only in size to the Olympic Games.
A Lawyer Who Knows and Understands Motorcyclists & Bicyclists
Since he established Sevenish Law Firm, Randy has earned a reputation for taking on “tough
cases,” negotiating aggressively with insurance companies and skillfully presenting cases in
court on his clients’ behalf.
His firm assists those who have been seriously injured in motorcycle, car, truck, bicycle and
pedestrian accidents, construction and workplace accidents, slip-and-falls, dog bites and other
personal injury cases.
The firm places a special focus on motorcycle and bicycle accident cases. This is due to the fact
that Randy and Regina have been avid motorcyclists for over 40 years and lifelong bicyclists. As
such, when it comes to cases of this nature they are Real Motorcycle & Bicycle Lawyers and
Real Riders. As such, cyclists and bikers know, like and trust Sevenish Law.
True Dedication to His Clients
So that he can focus the full extent of his firm’s attention and resources on each client it serves,
Randy accepts only a limited number of cases. In addition he believes there are a select number
of cases in which a lawyer is just not necessary and only will accept cases in which he believes
because of his involvement his clients are actually better off financially – with attorney fees – as
opposed to handling alone – without attorney fees. He believes after all, “this is the client’s
case, not the lawyer’s case.” Clients First always.
His clients benefit from an approach that is reflected in the firm’s Clients First® Guarantee and
Client’s Bill of Rights. The policy guarantees numerous rights, including the client’s right to
make ultimate decisions in a case and to always collect more than the firm does from a verdict
or settlement. The firm also vows to keep clients constantly updated on the status of their case.
“The guiding principle is that we respect our clients and treat them as the valuable human
beings that they are instead of seeing them only as opportunities for potential income,” Randy
says. “In other words, at the Sevenish Law Firm, our clients and their best interests always
