In case it's not obvious, Nance is the founder of The Law Studio. Having been a litigant, entrepreneur, human resources supervisor, and minor league hockey agent, she wanted a practice that fully addressed the people in the process. To further that mission, she got trial experience, completed the 40-hour mediation training at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") and created the Third Ear Conflict Resolution Program (TM). She will obtain her mediation certification from the International Center for Ethno-Religious Mediation ("ICERM") in March 2017, and she is now the ICERM's Main Representative at the United Nations. She arbitrates employment and investor disputes for the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA") and has coached new mediators for Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts ("VLA") and New York University's ("NYU") Mediation Apprenticeship Program.
Now in her 13th year of solo practice, Nance is expanding her team to serve the demand for holistic and integrative legal services. As a business owner, she has insider knowledge about bearing the risks that provide others their jobs. Yet she is also sensitive to the needs of individuals, who typically don't have experience in the judicial system and sometimes just need counsel to help them clear their legal clutter. A mediator to the core, she balances these interest and seeks win-win solutions, whether she is arbitrating, coaching, litigating, mediating, or teaching.
Nance lives in The Law Studio and really needs to get out more. You can help by hiring her to speak at your event.
