Former Broward Judge John Contini Sends 1 Clear Message
“Why Litigate When You can Mediate?”
Contini Solutions is an American multifaceted company steered by former Broward Judge John Contini, specializing in mediation services.
According to data sourced from Your Divorce Questions, it is estimated that 40-50% of all first marriages will end in divorce or permanent separation while 60-65% of second marriages will end in divorce. Contini Solutions is committed to whittling these numbers as low as possible.
John 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.
Decades of Experience
Former Broward Judge John Patrick Contini sits at the helm of Contini Solutions. After spending decades as a practicing lawyer and a judge, John has seen a fair share of families torn apart by lawyers that deemed litigation more profitable.
Former Judge Contini points out that mediation is the best possible solution for families falling on hard times that are open for discussion. By assisting his clients to get through the process with the most desirable outcome, John has helped dozens of families emerge stronger and firmer after mediation.
Child Custody Mediation
Aside from general mediation help, the former Broward Judge is also an expert in child custody mediation. John imparts that divorce can heavily impact any children in the family, especially the youngest ones. Mr. Contini is openly asking lawyers to “send each parent a Florida time-sharing Statute in advance of the mediation” or he will send the same information to each parent if no lawyers are involved. John seeks to help settle grievances between conflicting parties in the calmest, simplest way possible, striving to reconcile the parties:
“I help parents to finally make their peace and share their kids. I teach the parents about the MRI images of their kids’ developing brains, and what’s actually happening with the children, and how they are getting irreparably hurt, according to psychologists, and why the child will begin isolating and not going out for extra-curricular activities.”
Free Consultation by Former Broward Judge John Contini
Contini Solutions offers free consultation and lawyer matching services, but the main advantage it offers to its clients is John’s services as a life coach. Former Broward Circuit Court Judge J. P. Contini firmly believes that by changing the mindsets of his clients he can open the doors of opportunity to saving their marriages and families, stating:
“Over my career as a former trial lawyer and Circuit Court Judge, I witnessed way too much pain. It drove me to find a better way to serve people – whether by mediation or life coaching, i.e. more selfless ways that truly benefit the families in need. Life coaching helps us all in more affordable ways that prevent many of the problems from persisting or reoccurring in the future. I help hurting families and individuals by life coaching involving life issues unrelated to litigation,” said Contini.
John Patrick Contini is also a respected author. He channeled his experiences and emotions as a lawyer and judge into valuable life lessons, as divulged in “Danger Road” and “Feeling the Heat”.
Author and renowned Florida Mediator — Former Broward Judge John Contini
John is offering ghostwriting services to the public: “It’s more fun than my trial lawyer days, or being a Judge.”
The former Broward Circuit Court Judge believes everyone has a story to tell and he would love to help bring that story to life.
After a notable career in the legal sector, former Broward Circuit Court Judge Contini is looking set to conquer yet another field of endeavor. The distinguished legal luminary wants to help people who desire to author books with practical ways of doing so. According to John, people can take advantage of this offer by either hiring him to ghostwrite their books for them, or with them. Whatever the choice, John promises to help them tell their story and deliver a work of art that can hold its place on any shelf.
John’s ghostwriting service includes seven practical steps that are easy to follow:
Step 1 – Client spends approximately ten minutes a day sharing their thoughts and experiences with John who jots them down for later rewriting.
Step 2 – John adds transitional sentences between paragraphs while doing copious amounts of rewriting. This does not require the use of an outline.
Step 3 – Using the ‘show, not tell’ technique, there are recreations of scenes to bring the characters to life.
Step 4 – An optional step that involves first writing ‘in pieces’ and then connecting those pieces with transitional paragraphs.
Step 5 – This step entails the inclusion of brutal honesty into the writings.
Step 6 – Here comes the creative rewriting and the addition of extra thoughts and experiences that the client remembers.
Step 7 – A commitment to writing half a page each day that leads to the final production of the book in a year.
Former Judge Contini brings with him immense experience in the ghostwriting niche having authored two books himself with another on the way.
His first book Danger Road: A True Crime Story of Murder and Redemption chronicles the captivating courtroom drama of three drug dealers who were brutally murdered in 1983 on a lonely stretch of dirt road – ironically named Danger Road, in the Florida Everglades. Contini who was a trial lawyer then had a front row seat as he defended Gilbert Fernandez, Jr., the former Miami-Dade police officer once named Miami’s Meanest Cop.
John Contini gives readers a unique insider perspective on the mindsets of both a defense attorney in a capital murder case and a defendant who had become a completely different person by the time of his trial.
Danger Road also reveals details about the influence of the media on the trial, and the biased judge and prosecutors who were hell-bent to send Fernandez to the chair. By ripping the lid off the behind-the-scenes machinations of our legal system, one of the author’s goals was to cause readers to take another look at the way justice is dispensed in our society.
Contini states, “This riveting, real life drama cannot be easily forgotten. The events chronicle my actual trials as a criminal defense lawyer – before election to Circuit Court Judge – as well as the true crime and redemption stories I lived … all of which gave me the experiential wisdom (born of pain and loss too), that serves to help me today in my role as a peacemaker in mediation.”
Feeling the Heat
Contini’s second book Feeling the Heat: An Interrogation of the Soul is an inspirational true story that begins with betrayal and deception, moves to addiction and recovery, and closes with faith, redemption, reuniting with family and love – another true crime and crossover faith story of second chances from the God of second chances! A federally-indicted client and former friend chose to ‘wear a wire’ for a couple of rogue federal agents, while targeting Contini for indictment to minimize his own prison exposure. “This painful time in my life was actually used of God to bring me closer to Him – a prodigal son experience that will not be forgotten. What they meant for bad, God meant for good.”
