Andrew J. Rochen is a Supreme Court certified circuit, county, family, and appellate court mediator, as well as a Supreme Court qualified arbitrator. Prior to opening Rochen Mediation, Mr. Rochen was a shareholder in a large south-Florida law firm, where he was engaged in an extensive state and federal civil litigation and trial practice. In addition to chairing the litigation division of his prior law firm, Mr. Rochen focused his personal practice on litigating various types of claims arising out of tort liability, transportation liability, corporate liability, professional liability, government liability and property damage. He also routinely litigated high-exposure matters involving catastrophic loss, including claims involving wrongful death, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. Mr. Rochen has litigated several hundred claims throughout his career, from pre-suit through trial, and has trial experience at both the state and federal levels. He has served as counsel for both plaintiffs and defendants, and has had the benefit of direct interaction with dozens of insurance companies during the course of his career, thus providing him a unique understanding as to how the insurance industry and respective insurance carriers view the litigation and settlement processes. He is intimately familiar with the emotional, psychological, and financial costs associated with prolonged litigation, and understands the advantages of resolving a legal dispute in the conference room rather than the courtroom. Mr. Rochen’s overall experience affords him a unique perspective into the mediation process.
