Comments received by Jim from attorneys, parties, and insurance adjusters:

“Jim: thank you for your help yesterday. I always appreciate the opportunity to have you mediate my cases. As you know, we have some great mediators locally, but your success rate in settling difficult matters is impressive. Thanks again.” (March 2024)

“Jim: Thanks again for your efforts.  You did a wonderful job in a very short amount of time.  Not a surprise to me, but my adjuster was really impressed with you and took the time to expressly share that with me.” (February 2024)

“Thank you, Jim. There is no way we would have gotten this resolved without your efforts.” (June 2023)

“Jim, Thank you for all your hard work on this case – helping [Plaintiff] and [Defendant] get to the end. Our firm truly appreciates your unique skills and abilities. You had to use all of your super-powers on this one. This is proof only the best mediators can settle the hardest cases.”
(June 2023)

“Jim, I can’t tell you how glad I am that we got to get a slot with you yesterday. I genuinely don’t believe that most mediators would have been able to make that happen. Pat yourself on the back my friend.” (June 2023)

“Hi Jim, Pleasure working with you as well.  And nice work!  I have to say, I had no expectation of settling this case and was quite relieved that we got it done.  Thank you for making it happen.” (April 2023)

“Jim, Thank you very much for your time and attention you devoted to the mediation yesterday. Your skill and expertise in getting parties together is second to none. I watched how you were raising the ante for both sides to enable them to come to a settlement.” (March 2023)

“This was the first mediation I have ever participated with you.  Thank you for the hard work you put into this mediation.  I was impressed with your persuasive skills and ability in dealing with difficult parties.” (January 2023)

“Thanks, Jim. I specifically picked you for this mediation because I knew you could get it done.”
(January 2023)

“Thank you so much for your diligence and perseverance in facilitating a successful conclusion to our challenging mediation. While I wouldn’t consider myself an expert in legal proceedings and mediation, I have been exposed to the process a few times, and I found you to be incredible. Thank you again.” (November 2022)

“Thanks for your hard work yesterday.  John . . . told me you are the best mediator he’s ever had the pleasure to work with.  I concur.” (August 2022)

“You have done a phenomenal job in resolving this one. Thank you!” (June 2022)

“Thank you, Jim. You were there when it counted. We are all thankful for your unrelenting

efforts to help us find a path to settlement.” (May 2022)

“Jim, thanks so much for your diligence in helping resolve our mediation last night. You are a true professional and passionate about your work.  Forever grateful.” (April 2022)

“Jim, thank you so much for your help. No way this would have gotten resolved without you. Very humbling as someone who calls myself a mediator to see someone do it better.” (February 2022)

“Thank you for your efforts in this matter.  Your skill never ceases to amaze me.” (January 2022)

“I’d like to take this opportunity to say ‘thank you’ very sincerely for your efforts in the mediation.  I think if we had you the first two rounds we’d have gotten somewhere by now, and not be so polarized . . . . Thank you in particular for your professionalism in not wasting time.  Your candor mirrored the situation precisely.  Laying out many different approaches and bringing in [the story you told] was a perfect response, in my opinion.” (August 2021)

“Thank you so much for all your help on Wednesday. You were amazing and I can’t thank you enough for helping us to resolve a very difficult situation. Although I hope to never be in this situation again, if I do, or know of someone who is, I will definitely recommend your firm.  I truly appreciate the comfort and peace you have provided.” (August 2021)

Regarding a case that settled following mediation:  "This is another case you should list in your 'win' column.  My client . . . gave me SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS to notify ‘that great mediator we had' and give him the good news and thank him for all of his efforts."  (Apr. 2021)

"It was a pleasure working with you. I truly thought there was no way this case would settle. It could not have been done without you." (Mar. 2021)

"You are very good at what you do.  I appreciate your diligence in this small case. So I will recommend you for bigger ones over this way.  Thank you." (Jan. 2021)

"[Our] Team and I were very impressed with your handling of this Mediation. You absorbed a lot of complex info and positions very fast and were very patient to help us thread the proverbial needle.  Thanks!"  (Dec. 2020)

"This is . . . to thank you for the great job you did mediating this case.  It was a very long day, but as always you get the job done and settle cases that appear impossible to settle." (Apr. 2020)

"First I would like to say a special thanks to Jim for all of his hard and smart work on this matter.  To say we are very impressed and appreciative would be an understatement."  (Feb. 2020)

"As General Counsel of a large Not-For-Profit entity in the Tampa area, I recently participated in a mediation in which Jim Nulman acted as the mediator.  While this was not my first mediation, I can say that Jim Nulman was, perhaps, the most skilled mediator with whom I have worked.

Jim's strength lay in his approach and his experience.  He approached each side patiently and fairly, with a thorough understanding of the issues, and of each party's relative strengths and weaknesses.  Additionally, his career as a trial attorney gave him the credibility that allowed him to move the parties from a significant spread to an eventual settlement.  I was not certain that a mediated settlement was tenable in our particular circumstance.  Fortunately, our choice of mediators helped bring the untenable to a reality."  (Oct. 2018)
