WHO WE ARE
In 2015, attorney Randall Udelman and Dan Levey founded the non-profit Arizona Crime Victim Rights Law Group. In addition to serving victims, members of the Arizona Crime Victim Rights Law Group are also available to criminal justice agencies for victim rights training and educational presentations.
Randall Udelman, a practicing attorney for almost 30 years, has been providing crime victims with legal services as counsel of record at no cost to them since 2009.
Randall has extensive experience helping clients seek accountability for harm. His private practice focuses on disputes involving insurance carriers and commercial litigation. He has represented victims of crime, consumers who have suffered harm due to fraud, and victims who have suffered bodily injury or property damage.
Randall has been a past recipient of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office Distinguished Service Award, is an advisory board member with the National Crime Victim Law Institute, a member of the National Alliance of Victim’s Rights Attorneys & Advocates, and a former member of the National Crime Victim Bar Association.
Several years ago, Randall first represented a victim of a brutal shooting involving permanent injuries, trauma, multiple trials, appeals and numerous legal issues requiring legal assistance. Victims of crime come in all shapes and sizes and involve violent crime, white collar crime and property loss. Since this first case, Randall has worked to ensure that crime victims are not treated as evidence and instead are treated with fairness, dignity and respect throughout the criminal prosecution process.
For the past 20 years, Dan has been providing victim advocacy and support services to crime victims as Executive Director and the National President of the National Organization of Parents Of Murdered Children, Governor's Adviser for Victims, and Director of Victim Services at the Attorney General's Office. Dan has served as State Chairman of Mother's Against Drunk Driving Operations Council, board member, and National President of the National Organization of Victim Assistance, a member of the National Institute of Justice, Cold Case Task Force. Dan currently serves on the Arizona Supreme Court's Commission on Victims In the Courts, the Arizona Supreme Court Capital Case Committee, and the Arizona Attorney General's Victim Rights Advisory Committee.
Dan has received several awards for his advocacy, including the United States Attorney General's Ronald W. Reagan Public Policy Award honoring individuals whose leadership, vision, and innovation have led to significant changes in public policy and practice that benefit crime victims.
Dan has crafted numerous pieces of victim rights legislation and has testified before the Arizona State Legislature and the United States Congress regarding victim rights issues. He has appeared in national and local media. He has worked with and trained criminal justice professionals across the United States, sharing the latest techniques and best practices for aiding victims and families through the often-painful realities of the criminal justice system.
Dan has been a dedicated advocate for victim rights since 1996, when he suffered a personal tragedy involving the murder of his brother Howard in a random act of violence in Phoenix, Arizona.
