Mr. Rabin started his legal career in 1972 as a civil trial lawyer. He became seriously involved in dispute resolution as a Judge Pro tem for the Orange County Superior Court in 1977. In 1999 he became a full time mediator/arbitrator joining the panel of Judicate West. He has resolved a wide range of personal injury, medical malpractice, real estate, contractual and employment related matters. He is one of the most experienced neutrals in the area of third party litigation having often lectured in the field. In 2011, Mr. Rabin was inducted as the 3rd member of the Orange County Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame and happily the only one not to have received it posthumously. As an arbitrator Mr. Rabin is noted for his ability to render decisions clearly, concisely and in a timely manner. As a mediator he is open minded, practical, patient, and a great listener. He is quick to understand what is required to suit the needs of the parties. He utilizes creative solutions to resolve disputes and is known to pursue settlement long after a session ends. Clients admire his low key and positive manner as he pursues settlement and often note that he is very effective in communicating each party's perspective to the other and is resourceful in breaking impasse. "Mr. Rabin is a quick study in complex cases and is excellent in handling multiparty cases" said one attorney. He has successfully resolved 1000's of matters.
In his leisure time Mr. Rabin enjoys charitable projects, traveling, kayaking, swimming, meditation, good food and wine and rating restaurants on Zagat.
Mr. Rabin made the mediation process painless. I think everyone appreciated the resolution he facilitated with great diplomacy.

I wanted to extend my gratitude for Byron's undying efforts to bring this matter to a conclusion. He kept me calm
(no easy task), persevered and got the job done. I will definitely keep him in mind for future matters.
