“I really get the sense that Judge Nichols does this as ongoing public services. He charges less per hour than a lot of mediators of his experiences. He is well prepared and very fair as a mediator. He is very practical about trying to resolve the dispute and exploring different ways to do that.”

“Judge Nichols is extremely polite, I would say courtly. When he was on the bench he was one of the most patient and gentlemanly judges I’ve ever been in the room with. He had tremendous self-control and respect for people in chambers. He knows the law, knows people and understands people, which gives him an innate ability to build trust with clients.”
