This will be a lively, interactive discussion lead by John Rubin, an experienced personal injury/wrongful death litigator turned mediator. He will cover an array of topics, including: mediation preparation and 'strategies', attorney/client dynamics, dealing with difficult adjustors/attorneys and many others. Be prepared to engage with your questions and personal experiences.
In 1999, John graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with a Spanish minor. He went on to obtain a J.D. with a concentration in General Civil Litigation from Baylor Law School in Waco, Texas. He then moved back to Austin to practice with the law firm of Burns, Anderson, Jury & Brenner, L.L.P. for three years, defending cases in the areas of general litigation, insurance practices and coverage, mold, complex commercial litigation, workers compensation, railroad, and toxic exposure involving Toluene diisocyanate, mold, and diesel exhaust. In 2005, John joined the plaintiff’s personal injury/wrongful death law firm of Erskine & Blackburn, LLP. In 2007, John started the Rubin Law Firm litigating civil matters on both sides of the docket. In 2010, John established ATX Bilingual Mediation and has quickly transitioned his career from litigation practice into full-time mediation, where he intends to remain until everyone stops listening to him.
