Hello, My name is Michael Jobin

I am a Credentialed Advanced Mediator & Arbitrator, Certified Ombudsman, Credentialed Private Professional Guardian and Licensed Texas Real Estate Professional living in the great state of Texas.  Born and raised in Chicago and northern Indiana, somehow I have managed to keep my Chicago “hard r” and infuse it with a bit of Texas “y’all“.

Even though I could see Notre Dame from my back yard, I chose to attend St. Louis University.  I survived university with a double major in Philosophy and Theology and it was during this time I was introduced to healthcare administration and healthcare IT.  I have been blessed to spend, what is now over 25 years in healthcare administration and consulting; helping individual hospitals, physician groups and healthcare systems from Puerto Rico to California.

So how does this relate to conflict resolution?  Over the years I have participated in countless mediation and collective bargaining arbitration sessions.  Most felt cold, lacking empathy, control and some having an outright bias.  As a result, I knew there was a better way.  My goal with align Resolution Services is to provide a comprehensive, comfortable and reliable third party neutral mediation experience, empowering the parties to take control of their circumstances and resolve their conflict.
