    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 talk about difficult topics, such as:

    * Gender

    * Race

    * Religion

    * Disability

    Her holistic, integrative approach draws from mediation techniques and her proprietary Third Ear Conflict Resolution process. Based in New York City, she works with clients in the greater metropolitan, Albany, and Buffalo areas. She 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:

    * Worker misclassification

    * Sexual harassment prevention

    * Hostile work environments

    Additionally, Nance mediates disputes involving contract breaches, ownership disputes, and similar small business matters.

    Her 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 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 while also enrolled at the University at Buffalo School of Law. She was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2001.
