“I’ve always been forward-thinking,” said Tobin about the decision. “During my tenure as General Counsel, I initiated the bulk trial program affording a viable alternative to summary judgment shortening the litigation process while affording full due process. As former Chief Judge of Broward County, I established the Foreclosure Division as well as the Complex Business Litigation Division to increase efficiency in our court system and implemented a full-time first appearance criminal courts in Broward to conduct first appearances, provide full access to the courts, thereby reducing Broward’s jail population resulting in a significant savings to taxpayers.

I’m bringing that sort of creative initiative to my mediation practice, where it will benefit attorneys and their clients who need solutions and efficiency, not the stress of endless litigation.”
