Jim Nulman, an AV rated attorney with over 25 years litigation experience, is a Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil Mediator, Certified Appellate Mediator, and Certified Family Law Mediator. He is also certified as a mediator by the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

In 1980, Jim began practicing law in New Jersey. In 1983 he moved to Florida and joined the Fort Myers firm of Henderson, Franklin, Starnes & Holt, P.A. Jim practiced with Henderson Franklin until April 2006. For over 25 years, Jim practiced civil litigation, including a wide variety of commercial litigation and all aspects of construction litigation.

Jim started mediating in the early 1990s. In 1995 he became certified by the Florida Supreme Court as a Circuit Civil Mediator and, in 1997, he became a Certified U.S. District Court Mediator for the Middle District of Florida. When the Florida Supreme Court authorized certification for mediators in connection with matters on appeal in 2011, Jim was one of the first in Southwest Florida to become certified as an Appellate Mediator.

In April 2006, Jim established Nulman Mediation Services, Inc., a practice dedicated solely to providing mediation services. While in the early years of his mediation practice, Jim mediated mostly commercial and construction disputes, over the years that has broadened significantly. He now mediates over two hundred cases a year involving a wide range of civil disputes, including: business disputes & dissolutions; business torts; class actions; condominium disputes; construction disputes of all types and sizes; copyright & trademark matters; corporate & partnership disputes; eminent domain; employment discrimination; employee restrictive covenants (non-competes, non-solicitation and non-disclosure); fraud; HOA matters; legal malpractice; medical malpractice; negligence and intentional torts; personal injury; probate, estates & trusts; real estate disputes; real estates brokerage disputes; stock broker disputes; trade secrets and wrongful death.
