Instructor: Thomas D. Nielsen

Tom Nielsen has 40 years of experience as a trial lawyer and litigator and over 20 years’ service as a mediator, arbitrator, and settlement judge pro tem. Tom has extensive experience in areas that include personal injury, professional errors & omissions, products liability, real estate, business and contracts, construction, insurance, including bad faith, property damage, automobile/trucking accidents, UM/UIM matters, governmental entity, employment, and complex and catastrophic injury cases.

As his legal career progressed his desire to become a problem solver and peacekeeper became stronger. Over the last half of his career, Mr. Nielsen was drawn to the area of mediation, because it resonated with his core values of creating peace, rather than conflict, and can serve to promote understanding, while also preserving individual values.

Tom has completed extensive mediation training and was named to the 2013 Northern California Super Lawyers list in mediation.
