Divorce/separation is a difficult process for any couple. It does not matter if the couple is parting on amicable terms or complete vitriol. Angela has the knowledge of the process and the remarkable gift to defuse the situation if an emotional exchange arises. The focus is centered upon a fair exchange and if a children are involved: they are paramount. The first few steps moving into separation can shape the dynamics of a relationship for years to come. If a child is involved and resentment is present - this could carry serious ramifications. Angela continuously pulls the focus to the child or distilling the simple facts in order to compromise. In cases regarding children, she stated the parents may not be able to live together, but a framework created based on understanding and peaceful resolution will give the child two loving parents who are solely dedicated to them regardless of the situation at hand. Angela served as a great mediator and with her assistance gave us the tools to be the best parents we can be. As a sidenote. she was extremely flexible with meeting times and methods of communication (Skype, etc.).

Using Atty Green for a mediated divorce was a gift. She is compassionate, while maintaining clear boundaries and neutrality. She values teaching/coaching her clients how to negotiate in a respectful and productive manner. I most valued her ability to point out that neither of us was 'wrong' but that different personality styles and perspectives can create communication frustrations in a marriage that may not be repairable. This is so far from a traditional adversarial legal viewpoint! Meanwhile she made sure we each had excellent review attorney advice and provided some guidance in choosing review attorneys (at our request). As stressful a time as this was, having Atty Green's involvement lead to a far better outcome. I also appreciated her initial strong encouragement to interview several mediators before deciding on one which speaks to her character and integrity in wanting to be sure that both parties involved were comfortable and in agreement. I believe we both felt listened to, heard and understood (even if we didn't always like what we heard as is so common in a divorce) I highly recommend Atty Green for mediation whether it be divorce or any other type of mediation.

I have already referred friends to Atty Green. I spoke very highly of her to co-workers, who then came back, and confided that they were considering divorce, and wanted her information. Her mediation style is gentle, and friendly, while still being professional and informative. Our last appointment was sad, as if I was losing a friend.

My ex-wife and I were married for twenty-two years and we mutually decided that it was time for us to go our separate ways. We agreed from the beginning that we wanted to use mediation because we wanted the process to be open, fair and cost effective. My ex located Attorney Green in Glastonbury, and we were impressed with the time and effort that she made to explain and clarify the similarities and differences between using an individual attorney's and using a mediator. Without going into great detail about our divorce, I can say that my ex and I were guided through the complexities of dividing our assets and making sure that our children would not be harmed by the process. Attorney Green demonstrated that she was impartial and committed to a fair and equitable process. Equally as important was the relationships that she has with her colleagues and other attorneys that specialize in specific areas of the law and such that she regularly conferenced with to make sure that the information that she was providing was accurate. Overall, we had a successful experience.

Angela was the right attorney for me, she was not afraid to tell me the truth while she guided me through a painful divorce. I'm glad someone recommended me to her and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a peaceful solution to a seperation/divorce.

I am so thankful for running across Atty. Green during my divorce process. Going through a divorce is so emotionally painful and even thinking about getting an attorney made me so nervous. Atty. Green has been such a blessing throughout the entire process. She is extremely knowledgeable and made the whole process quick and painless. She was more concerned about making sure the process went as painless as possible for my spouse and I rather than trying to bill us additional hours for unneeded work. Atty. Green has tremendous business ethics and I would absolutely recommend her for anyone searching for a divorce attorney. She's been a Godsend!

Angela was a perfect fit for me. She was fair in her fees and very fair in how she conducted our meetings. Her knowledge and professional practices made me feel as comfortable as anyone could going through the stress of a separation. I would highly recommend her to any body looking to the process of mediation.

Angela was instrumental in making the divorce mediation process a fair and uncomplicated. Because of Angela's skill, experience, and compassion, the final outcome of the settlement left both my wife (ex) and I feeling that we reached closure and we were very happy and comfortable with the outcome. Angela is patient, compassionate, yet kept the process going and efficient.

Angela Greene was a great mediator. She remained neutral at all times, but was also sensitive and compassionate to both sides. She always worked with us toward a mutual agreement that we both could live with and be happy with. I highly recommend Angela as a mediator.

I went to her for a mediation. She was wonderful. Very knowledgeable, understaning and efficient. The divorce cost me much less than had we both hired lawyers. I was very happy with the outcome and with how professional Attorney Green was.

Angela made the divorce process as pleasant as possible and with very little fighting. She always lead us to an agreeable compromise. She was fair to both of us and made us see and understand each point of view during the process. If she was not sure about something, she would find out about it. She even called in a specialized lawyer, that would do the best job processing properly the agreement we had made about a pension and 401K plan. She truly wanted the best for both of us and never favored one side over the other. Angela was always pleasant, compassionate, trustworthy and accommodating to us. I, as well as my exhusband, would highly recommend to any couple to go through mediation with Anglea Green.

Attorney Green was very easy and pleasant to work with. She helped make one of the most difficult decisions of my life a comfortable transition. Her knowledge of the court system and divorce proceedings made the process simple from beginning to end.

At a time when things are difficult and seemed your life is 'out of your control', Attny Green was there to keep you focused on the tasks to come to an amicable resolution, while being available, no matter when, and helping you over the tough spots. She was very attentive to her clients needs and schedules, which made the whole divorce mediation, although, tramatic at times, and you thought you wouldn't get through it, she knew you could and keeping focused on the reason we chose mediation. I appreciated her confidentiality, honesty and candid nature, in an up and down emotional time. She helped you see things clearer and always let you know what you could expect based on situations as they arose. I would recommend her to anyone else going through the same situation.

We worked with Atty. Green for a divorce mediation. Atty. Green sat us down and explained the mediation process from top to bottom and even gave us a binder that re-emphasized the process and organized the paperwork we would need. The forethought that Atty. Green put into the initial meeting really set the stage for the rest of the mediation and helped focus us towards the goal.
The rest of the meetings went well and were just as organized. First, we completed our financials. She uses a professional software program made just for divorces. It was setup to follow the information sheets in our binder, so it really saved time ($$) and aggravation.
The second meeting focused on the things we each needed to get out of the divorce. For the most part, since we chose mediation, we already had talked about some of our needs, but Atty. Green brought up issues we had not thought about. Some of the tough issues were actually easy to get settled. Some of the issues I thought would be easy were not. Luckily her experience guided us through and we ultimately made our own decisions that worked best for us.
I was happy with our choice in Atty. Green. and would recommend her to anyone going through a divorce, but I hope to never need her again.
