Lynn Toler presides on the nationally syndicated show Divorce Court. She’s a published author and a regular contributor to NPR. Toler earned her undergraduate degree in English and American Literature from Harvard and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. As a litigator, she tried cases at all levels, from municipal to common pleas to federal court. In 1994, she was elected Administrative Judge in Cleveland Heights Municipal Court, and during her eight-year tenure, she oversaw hundreds of small claims, domestic violence, assault, and stalking cases.

Deborah Hutchison is co-founder and CEO of Panther Productions Inc., a production company specializing in film, publishing, and product design. As a result of the challenging issues she experienced with her first husband, Hutchison created the “Bill Your Ex” system—a popular tool for collecting court-ordered support payments from spouses. For this original product design, Deborah was awarded the 1990 Lammie Award for “Best New Product in a Law-Related Field.” She has appeared in magazines and on syndicated talk and radio shows.
