The Honorable John P. DiBlasi’s illustrious career includes 10 years spent as Justice of the Supreme Court, Commercial Division where he resolved hundreds of matters. As the presiding justice of the commercial part in the court in which he sat, he developed the rules for discovery practice and for the trial of commercial matters which are similar to those used in the federal courts. While on the bench he presided over complex commercial litigation involving contracts, employment, real property/land use and environmental litigation matters and developed extensive experience in the trial and settlement of complex commercial matters. Judge DiBlasi created the Commercial Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Program, which was successfully implemented by the Court.

In 2020, for the seventh year in a row, Judge DiBlasi was named one of the Top Three Mediators in the United States by The National Law Journal Best Of Survey (voted #1 four years in a row). He was voted the #1 mediator in the United States by the 2018 Corporate Counsel Best Of Survey and for the third year in a row, he was named a National Law Journal Alternative Dispute Resolution Champion, as part of a select group of only 46 nationwide. Further, he was ranked a Top Ten Mediator in the 2019 New York Law Journal Best of Survey for the tenth consecutive year. He has consistently been designated a Super Lawyer since 2013 and holds an AV Preeminent Peer Rating from Martindale-Hubbell in both Alternative Dispute Resolution and Litigation – a distinction given only to those who possess the highest ethical standards and professional ability.
