Attorney Profile

Nance L. Schick wants to keep people out of court and build their conflict resolution skills. Focusing on employment and small business conflicts, she helps people have productive conversations about gender, race, religion, and disability. She uses alternative dispute resolution methods, such as transformative mediation and her proprietary Third Ear Conflict Resolution process. Based in New York City, she provides representation to clients in the greater metropolitan area, Albany, and Buffalo. Ms. Schick is admitted to practice before all New York state courts as well as before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

Drawing on her pre-law experience as a Human Resources/Employee Relations Supervisor and litigant, she trains and advises licensed professionals on employee misclassification, sexual harassment, discrimination prohibited by a variety of federal and state laws, hostile work environments, wrongful termination, and other acts of retaliation. In addition, Ms. Schick assists businesses in contract breaches, ownership disputes, and similar matters.

Ms. Schick's mediation training in equal employment opportunity and ethno-religious mediation led to a two-year appointment as the Main Representative to the United Nations for the International Center for Ethno-Religious Mediation. She also serves as an arbitrator on panels that are hearing investor and employment disputes before the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc.

Majoring in education with a focus on sports administration, Ms. Schick attended the University of Louisville and received a Bachelor of Science in 1995. After working in minor league baseball and hockey, she worked as an agent registered with the Professional Hockey Players Association and enrolled at the University at Buffalo School of Law. She was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2001.
