About William Lobb

Attorney Lobb has tried dozens of jury trials to verdict and tried in excess of 2500 non-jury trials. As the Courts mandate that all dissolution of marriage cases be mediated prior to trial, he has extensive mediation experience and is skilled in negotiation.  Bill has a unique perspective on that process as he is also a Supreme Court certified Family Law Mediator and a Supreme Court certified Circuit Civil Mediator.

He is an avid runner and competes in ultramarathons, marathons, half-marathons and 5K races. His best marathon time to date is 3:51 in Tallahassee in 2008.  Bill’s latest interest is in rowing and he hopes to someday compete in an indoor rowing event.
