Congratulations to John Contini – Broward County’s New Circuit Court Judge!

With deep roots in South Florida, The THERAPY-IV cares as much about what’s best for our community as we Miami Deep Sea Fishing. That is why we are proud to welcome John P. Contini as the new Broward County Circuit Judge!

Backed by The Miami Herald, and strongly endorsed by Captain Stan himself, John’s integrity, strong work ethic, and boundless enthusiasm will no doubt serve his community well. In addition to these vital personal qualities, he also brings tremendous professional experience, having served as both a state and federal prosecutor, as well as a member of the Broward State Attorney's and the U.S. Department of Justice's anti-obscenity task force.

John is best known for his 30 years as a successful and acclaimed criminal defense attorney. Viewing his work as deeply rewarding, he was driven to help clients receive second chances, successfully representing thousands of criminal defendants in Florida and across the United States. His ability to develop an affable and genuine relationship with everyone he worked with – clients, prosecutors, and judges alike – will no doubt be vital in his new position.

During the election campaign, John made it clear what he would bring to the table as Broward County Circuit Judge: “respect, civility, and humility” as well as the promotion of pre-trial resolution. That’s the sort of dedication and fair-mindedness that Broward County needs in a circuit judge, and we look forward to seeing the fruits of such an approach.
