To say our case was a tough one is an understatement. Most talking points were met with opposing views. Needless to say, most meetings were intense, resulting in a more-than-typical number of meetings to finish. There were many times when it looked like mediation may not be for us; however, Nick DeMetro stuck with us and patiently guided us through this tumultuous process. He was invested in helping us find a common ground.
Throughout the process, I came to know that he was not just doing his job, but that he truly cared. He also showed a deep mindfulness for our children, and that always meant so much to me.
He proved to be reliable, loving, and trustworthy. Divorce is never where I imagined I would be. I believed that no matter the challenge, I could make my marriage work. Sadly, I was wrong. When you realize you have to make one of the toughest decisions of your life, you need someone by your side that can be trusted in a time of insecurity and fear. Nick was/is that person. I am so grateful that I found a person like Nick to rely on from beginning to end.

After meeting with a few mediators, we finally settled on Nicholas and we are very happy that we did.
He was a really good listener who asked us the right questions so we could arrive at a fair agreement. His rate was extremely competitive and he was very efficient during our meetings (we got a lot done in each session), While the process in general is a stressful one, his supportive approach made it comfortable and safe.
He was a man of his word - he did everything that he said he would and he never surprised us with unexpected charges. He also articulated the whole process well and by the time we met with the judge, we had everything that we needed and we were well prepared.
I don't typically (i.e., almost never) write reviews, but my experience with Nicholas was so positive that I wanted to write this one.

Mr. De Metro proved himself to be a trustworthy mediator whose fair and knowledgeable approach made the process much easier than I anticipated. I was very happy with the outcome and would gladly recommend him.

When my husband of 16 years asked me for a divorce I didn't know who to trust or where to turn for advice. I had heard about divorce mediation, but really didn't understand it, so I researched divorce mediation online & I came upon Mr. DeMetro's website for Montclair Divorce Mediation. I called him and he took the time to patiently explain the mediation process to me and how it was different from my husband & I each hiring our own attorneys. My husband had already consulted an attorney, but agreed to go for an initial consultation with Mr. DeMetro when I explained to him the financial advantages of using mediation vs. each of us hiring our own attorney, as it was explained to me by Mr. DeMetro. My now soon to be ex husband agreed to try the mediation process. It was difficult taking apart the pieces of our marriage and our life together but Mr. DeMetro' was calm patient and direct and always got us back on track when we would be disagreeing and would find a way to help us to come to an agreement on issues that were very difficult for me to deal with. I would recommend him highly to anyone who is going through the unfortunate process of ending their marriage.
