Biography

The Hon. Randall Stamen is a judge for the Riverside County Superior Court in California. He was appointed to the bench by former Governor Jerry Brown in 2017. He filled the vacancy created by the elevation of the Hon. Richard T. Fields to the Court of Appeal.

He is a registered Republican.

Judge Stamen received his B.A. from the University of California, Irvine. He went on to earn his J.D. from the University of San Diego School of Law.

Prior to his appointment to the Superior Court, Stamen spent his entire legal career in private practice. He began as an associate at Reid and Hellyer, where he practiced from 1992 to 1994. Stamen then joined the Law Offices of Thomas L. Miller, where he also worked briefly as an associate before entering into solo practice. During his time as a sole practitioner, Stamen specialized in the unique field of tree-related litigation, where he handled cases involving damage done by trees as well as tree encroachment. His experience in this field led him to write a book on the subject of California statutes concerning trees. He was practicing at his own firm at the time of his appointment to the Superior Court in 2017.

While on the bench, Judge Stamen has presided over a civil calendar and trials assignment at the Riverside Historic Courthouse.
