From the Lawyer - Sponsored
Robbie Meripol Barr’s experiences make her especially adept at ADR; she has resolved thousands of disputes over the past 24 years.
Barr’s skills stem from a diverse legal background that gives her multiple perspectives on the court process. In private practice, she tried complex civil cases involving commercial torts, real estate, construction, professional malpractice and other contractual claims.
Only six years out of law school, Barr achieved an AV Martindale-Hubbell rating. She knows how tough it is to manage a practice and to try cases, and she understands the issues that lawyers face in their daily practice.
Barr also understands the court process from the other side of the bench. In January of 1991, she joined Miami-Dade County’s Circuit Court (the largest circuit in the state and the fourth largest trial court in the nation). To survive, Barr had to learn trial management quickly.
In addition to trying hundreds of cases in her civil docket, Barr handled 2,300 asbestos cases, which resulted in a 95% settlement rate. Additionally, she assumed duties as an appellate judge, hearing appeals in the Circuit Court’s Appellate Division, as well as twice being invited to sit as a Visiting Judge in Florida’s Fourth District Court of Appeal.
Barr has been invited to teach and train in a wide array of forums and to assume positions of leadership in the bar associations to which she belongs.
