A graduate of Temple University and Nova University School of Law, John R. Sorkin was admitted to the Florida bar in 1980. Although he practiced law and gaining valuable trial experience in Broward County as an assistant public defender, it was when dealing with family law that Mr. Sorkin felt he was providing an overlooked service, often needed by family members during a difficult time in their lives. It was a natural sequence of events that in 1990 Mr. Sorkin became a Supreme Court Certified Family Mediator, offering court-ordered and non-court ordered mediations, as well as, arbitration. These mediation sessions are conducted with or without attorneys’ present. Regardless of the circumstances, Mr. Sorkin is known for making a challenging time a little easier for all those involved, and his ten-year association with the Dale Carnegie Institute gives him a qualified skillset that sets him apart and above, listening to his clients’ needs and objectively and expertly guiding them through some of most
the stressful circumstances.
