Professional Experience:

M. Gino Brogdon, Sr. is a nationally sought-after mediator known for his big sense of humor, quick study wit and an uncanny knack for establishing a rapport even with the most remote professional and lay personalities. As the youngest of eleven children, this Ohio native earned his legal stripes as a trial lawyers in a number of large, respected law firms in Atlanta prosecuting and defending all kinds of serious civil matters across the country. Gino also served nearly ten years on the busiest trial bench in the Southeast in Atlanta, Fulton County, Georgia. Having been appointed to the bench at 34 years old, Gino presided over a plethora of civil cases including gun litigation, wrongful death, high stakes business and construction disputes, trucking, product liability, medical and other professional malpractice cases, and established a strong reputation as a no-nonsense trial judge with a special touch for distilling complex matters to the bare elements. As a trial judge, Gino was known for his ability to streamline the discovery process, his remarkable proficiency to wade through a complex motions practice and a truly robust ability to shepherd waring parties through the sometimes tedious and stressful negotiation process.

He has brought this same clear-headed streamlining approach to mediating and arbitrating nearly 3,000 cases since 2002. As a full-time mediator, arbitrator and special master, Gino is known for his decisiveness, authenticity, strong but agile style and his nearly unmatched work ethic through complete resolution of the dispute. Gino brings a rare realism, common touch and efficiency to every mediation and arbitration leaving a lasting positive impression on its participants. Gino has handled a broad variety of cases including professional malpractice, trucking, premises, product liability, mass torts, celebrity misconduct, employment, civil rights and a smattering of disputes involving professional athletes. With a national neutral practice, Gino readily travels to the civil dispute while armed with hours of preparation and strategy to get the matter resolved. His results speak for themselves and are reflected in Gino’s schedule. Although the wait for a session with Gino can be extended, the work product will leave most wanting more of this remarkable neutral.

Gino lives in Atlanta with his three sons, two lawyers and a professional basketball player. H stands ready to assist in resolving your matter.
