Nicholas De Metro, Esq.
Specialty: Divorce Mediation
An attorney since 1991, Nicholas De Metro has been representing clients as a divorce lawyer for several years. De Metro witnessed firsthand how emotionally and financially destructive divorce litigation is to the entire family—especially children—so in 2009, he changed his practice and dedicated himself to helping families going through the divorce process. He now devotes his practice solely to divorce mediation to limit the emotional pain and economic impact on families while assisting clients with improved methods of co-parenting.
A compassionate, solution-oriented and neutral mediator, De Metro provides a non-threatening environment for couples to resolve issues such as the division of assets, debts, alimony, child support and parenting issues. “Many clients have told me that I introduced issues they never even considered,” he says.
An accredited divorce mediator by the New Jersey Association of Professional Mediators, De Metro guides couples by taking a practical, even-handed approach. He re-focuses the dialog while offering multiple options, clarifying divorce law and diffusing disputes—which provides both spouses with better control over the terms and conditions of their divorce and future. He is adept at helping couples develop creative, long-term solutions to complex issues that result in fair, reasonable and comprehensive settlement agreements.
“I’m committed to helping spouses resolve all of their issues and get divorced—without it costing a fortune,” he says.
"He's extremely patient and kind. He's also honest and upfront. We worked together for a long time due to difficulties with my ex and I agreeing on particular items. Nick worked so diligently to help us through this and come to an agreement that worked for everyone. Another thing Nick did that I always appreciated was [ask] about my children. To a mother, that means the world. He proved in many ways that he was there to help our lives, but to also ensure the lives of our children were happy and healthy, as well. This was clearly a priority to him." - M.K., Upper Montclair
