After 40 years in the insurance business, I have been exposed to a wide range of skill sets amongst mediators both here and the United States. I can honestly say that Nick’s unique approach of appropriately delivered respect, compassion, and tough love, combined with a solid understanding of personal injury law makes him one of the best I have worked with.
Have worked with Nick on a number of occasions and have found his calm, respectful, and rational approach gets participants engaged and ready to accept compromise, and therefore able to productively work through their disagreements.
Nick always comes well prepared to mediations after having read the mediation summaries and thoroughly understanding the issues. But that’s not what separates Nick from many other mediators. His biggest strength is his ability to read people and quickly gauge the tone and flow of the mediation process so that he can take the most appropriate course of action to assist the parties in resolving their dispute. Over the years, I have found that his ability to adapt and employ different styles on different days is what separates him from the rest. Simply put, he recognizes when to play a very active role and also when to remain quiet and let the parties work out their differences. He is an excellent mediator.
Nick, I just wanted to thank you again for making a potentially uncomfortable experience a rather pleasant one.
I’ve worked with Nick on a number of occasions, and have always been happy with the work he has done, and how he has gone about it
