Former Broward Judge John Contini Offers Mediation Services Like No Other

Former Broward Judge John Contini of Contini Solutions is offering his mediating services to the general public. The former Circuit Court Judge and trial lawyer is bringing his wealth of experience to help his clients successfully resolve any type of conflict.

It is common knowledge that conflict is an inevitable part of life. Despite the many best efforts of humans to eliminate or significantly reduce its presence, it still shows up in many ways. Most people tend to shy away from conflicts and for good reasons. Studies have linked conflicts to negative effects like soured relationships, low productivity, resentments, and even ill-health. However, these disadvantages only happen when conflict is handled the wrong way. Employing the services of a professional mediator like Former Judge John Contini can go a long way in bringing any conflict to a satisfactory end.

John Contini is the founder of Contini Solutions, a company offering mediation services to the public. Contini is stepping into his new role as a mediator after a 30-year illustrious career as a former Circuit Court Judge and trial lawyer. According to the many dozens of lawyers and litigants who have now posted google reviews attesting to their experiences with John Contini as their mediator to date, this legal background makes him stand out from other mediators and enables him to offer superior services to his clients. “I have been on all sides of the equation from Assistant State Attorney (prosecutor) to trial lawyer (27 years) in the areas of criminal defense, personal injury, wrongful death, family law and civil rights litigation, and most recently as a Circuit Court Judge presiding over many thousands of divorce cases, so I can certainly relate to both sides in almost all cases.” Contini has had 36 mediations over the last several months resulting in 32 full settlements and only four (4) at an impasse, an unprecedented 88.8% success rate.

Getting into mediation after his official retirement in 2018 as a Circuit Court Judge was a no-brainer for John Contini. His passion has always been to help people safely navigate the confusing maze of the legal system. Thus, he saw mediation as another way of pursuing his passion even as a retired legal luminary. This has led to the establishment of Contini Solutions which the now mediator oversees.

Contini Solutions mediates in various service areas including financial situations, real estate, construction, addiction/recovery, insurance, home improvement, immigration, and all legal matters.

Sharing his thoughts on his new role, Former Broward Judge John Contini says, “I feel blessed to have the opportunity to help people resolve their problems peacefully and quickly. This is a privilege, I know, and it is a mission of sorts, saving them from depleting all their savings and ruining their health by fighting in court over too many months or years.”

John Contini also offers more insight into his mediating services. “I’m unapologetic about helping my clients select the right lawyer for their unique situation, and for this kindness, I will not charge a fee like lawyer referral services will do. To save a lot of money, many people retain me as the mediator in their case or they decide to retain me to stay with a lawyer I recommend—to work closely with the lawyer, spearheading the paralegal and investigative services at a much lower rate than the higher rates charged by lawyers. This is always the client’s option or choice. The additional good news is that I will only connect my clients and their families with a very caring, competent, and affordable lawyer.”

John Contini is a man that wears many hats. Apart from being a mediator, he is also a business and life coach consultant, lay minister/pastor, author and ghostwriter who is open to taking on book writing offers.
