Hartin for Tarrant County Criminal Court #6
Randi Hartin knows what it means to serve in this community. A lifelong Texan who has lived in Tarrant County for more than 25 years, she has forged successful careers in education and law through hard work and a commitment to integrity – both in the classroom and the courtroom.
A graduate of The University of North Texas, Randi began her career in the Arlington and Mansfield school districts, as both a teacher in secondary education and as a department head. After several years in public education, she felt driven by a calling to serve others through jurisprudence.
After attending Texas Wesleyan University School of Law, Randi joined the Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney’s Office, earning a solid reputation as a prosecutor who stood up for the safety of our community, while fervently seeking truth, justice and fairness. As an Assistant Criminal District Attorney, she tried cases ranging from misdemeanor DWIs to Aggravated Kidnapping and Sexual Assault. She dedicated much of her time to fighting for the victims of domestic violence, both at the misdemeanor and felony levels.
Randi has spent a combined fifteen years as a school teacher and attorney in Tarrant County, advocating for children and families. Her work in education and family law has provided further insight into the devastating effects domestic violence has on families when left unaddressed. As a teacher, she served as a first line of defense for students reporting abuse. As a family law attorney, she has worked on cases involving applications for protective orders to address accusations from physical abuse to stalking. In doing so, Randi obtained invaluable experience in her field. As a criminal defense attorney, she has also assisted men and women in obtaining help through programs established to combat domestic violence and break the cycle once and for all.
Randi's handling of thousands of criminal cases as both a former prosecutor and defense attorney gives her the significant benefit of analyzing cases from multiple perspectives and has resulted in a reputation for objectivity and common sense among her colleagues. She is a member of both the Tarrant County Bar Association and the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer Association, and was named a 2020 & 2021 Top Criminal Law Attorney, according to Fort Worth Magazine.
As the next judge for the Tarrant County Criminal Court 6, Randi will strive to manage a court where victims, defendants and attorneys alike will be heard and addressed with dignity and impartiality. Her commitment to efficiency will be invaluable in decreasing docket size, which has grown exceedingly due to county restrictions during the pandemic. She is committed to upholding the constitutional and statutory integrity of the law.
Randi is the proud mother of a daughter who attends The Oakridge School in Arlington. She is an active member of various local Republican clubs, the Treasurer for the Republican Women of Arlington and attends the First United Methodist Church of Mansfield.
