Kind Words

"Since being represented by Ms. Nickle, I have referred many people to her. She is compassionate and firm in her representation. She is very thorough in her advice. I felt protected and in good hands."
- Donna, Mississauga

"Ms. Nickle helped my wife and I mediate our separation agreement. As a lawyer she understands what a legally balanced agreement looks like. She properly informed us to obtain independent legal advice from our own separate legal counsel. Many mediation services underplay the importance of this. Through this process we have come to understand that mediation is a legal process, that the resulting separation agreement is a legally binding contract and that it is very important for each of us to understand our legal rights and obligations and how the terms will affect each of us now and in the future. Our own independent counsel was invaluable."
- Chris, Mississauga
"Ms. Nickle helped me negotiate in a very difficult emotional time. She protected my legal interests in every way while guiding me to a final resolution, which is what I needed."
- Samantha, Toronto
"There are so many mediation services. I spoke with many providers and I am pleased to have chosen Ms. Nickle as our mediator. Her fees were reasonable and fair and her hours flexible. She explained the mediation process very well and she made sure that we understood all our choices. We appreciated her frankness about the importance of individual independent legal advice to make sure our individual legal interests were covered. I would not hesitate to recommend Ms. Nickle as mediator to any couple going through separation."
