Biography

Robbie Meripol Barr’s experiences make her especially adept at mediation, a skill that has allowed her to resolve thousands of cases over the past 16 years. Barr practiced mediation and arbitration at Colorado’s largest mediation firm, where she successfully settled cases involving employment law, complex commercial transactions, construction defects and delays, professional malpractice, real property, environmental law, personal injury/ wrongful death, insurance, civil rights and everything in between.

Barr’s ability to settle claims stems in part from a diverse legal background that gives her multiple perspectives on the court process. In private practice, she tried complex civil cases, developing special expertise in commercial torts, real estate litigation, construction disputes, professional malpractice and all types of 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 1991, Barr commenced work as a Circuit Judge in Dade County, Florida. Dade County is the largest circuit in the state and the fourth largest trial court in the nation. To survive, Barr was required to learn trial management quickly. In addition to 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.
