Stress is, unfortunately, an integral component in the life of a litigation lawyer. Former Broward Circuit Judge John Patrick Contini, a former Judge, noted: 

Stress is, unfortunately, an integral component in the life of a litigation lawyer. John Contini, a former Judge, noted: “Sadly, when it comes to litigation and disputes in court that are decided by judges or juries, there is always a losing side — unlike mediated disputes; and people on the losing end of litigation find it difficult to come to terms with those losses and outcomes.”

John expressed that he flourished when he transitioned to mediation. By founding Contini Solutions, which is now widely recognized among the leading mediation law firms in Florida and beyond, John found peace and is helping his clients do the same.

He began specializing in the mediation of family law cases — yet after the unprecedented rate in those cases began reverberating all throughout the South Florida legal community, he was then asked by more and more commercial litigation, real estate litigation, and probate litigation lawyers, to handle their business and real state and probate litigation cases, ie, people fighting in court over the ownership of buildings, businesses, and inheritances. To date, he has achieved the same 89% success rate in those cases as well.  Now, he is called upon as the go-to mediator in all types of legal disputes, regardless of the area of the law.

“Truth be told, it’s a much better, kinder, gentler, and more peaceful life.”

“I’ve never been happier or more successful on every level, including my own mental and emotional health, now being a mediator rather than a litigator, or when I was incarcerated by my circumstances and constraints as a judge” said John.

He stated that all judges wear a heavy crown. From parties dissatisfied with the ruling to envious lawyers who dream of joining the other side of the bench, numerous individuals openly despise litigation judges and don’t perceive them as human beings. John described his tenure as Broward Circuit Court Judge as “proverbial imprisonment”, stating:

“As a judge, you’re targeted by too many haters to count – many of the disappointed or angry people you ruled against in their cases, and you’re stuck all day every day in that building itself – an edifice that doubles as a cesspool of toxicity and oppression, with thousands of frightened and nervous and angry people who are either losing their homes to foreclosures that day or getting divorced in the building in other hearings happening simultaneously while others are being criminally prosecuted or being sued by creditors or neighbors in commercial or other money disputes,” Contini said.

Mr. Contini could not turn his head while another judge was faced with a similar treatment.

The infamous case of Nikolas Cruz was presided by Broward County Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer, who handled one of the most challenging cases in Florida’s history. Judge Elizabeth upheld the highest degree of professionalism throughout the hearing, but despite her commendable resolve, the prosecutors accused her of being biased.

“Judges can’t be human now?

Leave her alone. Judges today work in a fishbowl. You’re walking on eggshells, frightened of the JQC, frightened of the lawyers. God forbid a judge shows any modicum of sensitivity, compassion, and empathy. It just showed her humanity and compassion and shared grief after witnessing all the pictures and the gruesome testimony. The trial was over,” John said.

As a former Broward Circuit Court Judge,

Contini felt the same emotions and witnessed the same type of treatment as Elizabeth on multiple occasions. He enjoined Elizabeth to embrace mediation, given that her resignation will take effect by the end of June, saying:

Embracing a New Path in Mediation

“There is a better, kinder, gentler, and more peaceful life away from that building and all that ugly hate and fear and anxiety and toxic litigation. It’s called mediation.

It’s what I do now, and I’m booked up daily as a consistent helper to the many lawyers who ask me to help settle their cases, and you can truly help people achieve peace or closure this way. It’s faster, much more affordable, and more rewarding to everyone involved. That’s probably why Christ himself tells us in Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” She could now switch her career to Mediation, and do exactly as I’m doing, being a mediator,” John concluded.
