Terri represented my wife in a friendly divorce; I represented myself. Everything was amiable enough, though stress levels and emotions spiked in different ways at various times. Terri and her staff were patient, friendly, and professional throughout. During our joint mediation sessions Terri was helpful and patient, able to provide simple emotional as well as legal support. It was a pleasure — though that's probably not the right word, given the situation — working with her.

Terri was amazing to work with - her patience and understanding kept me going through a very difficult time. At times I wanted to give up on the collaborative process but she was always able to remind me why I took that path (my children) she was able to empathize with my situation and yet be firm and honest with me when I needed it. Her humor also kept me going through a long difficult mediation process. Her staff was excellent and was always there to answer questions or get me the info I needed.
Terri was highly praised by the additional folks we had helping us through the process - counselors and financial people. She was highly respected by the attorney we worked with and I feel the same. I have given her name to many people who have asked for referrals.
Terri also has a true commitment to helping children through divorce and strongly believes the collaborative process is the best way for children to thrive after divorce. I have to agree - many people I know have gone through the standard court system and ended up with hard feelings and outcomes they did not want. The collaborative process really helps ensure that everyone agrees on the outcomes and the children are put first in all decisions.
As Terri said - 'It's like giving birth - you think you can't stand it anymore and you want to give up and then it's done.' The result was worth every moment of pain and suffering.
My ex and I are not best buddies but I think we were able to get out of the marriage and recognize the need for us to work together for our kiddos even if our feelings were hurt.
Can't imagine doing it without Terri - thank you Terri.

Terri was the most supportive, kind, powerful and effective attorney that I could ever imagine having during my divorce. I would recommend her with no reservations to anyone going through a divorce. The whole process actually brought healing and growth during what I expected to be an incredibly difficult time. Don't hesitate to use Terri, you will be in very capable/ compassionate hands.

I needed an Attorney that specializes in divorce/mediation. Terri came highly recommended from another great Attorney who does not deal with divorce. I have never hired an Attorney in my life and I was scared, upset and didn't know where to start. After only being married for two years I never thought I would be going through a divorce, I thought I would live happily ever after. Terri Harrington was absolutely wonderful! She was knowledgeable and kind, she constructed a document I needed and she advised me every step of the way. She was patient when I was emotionally upset about the divorce and she kept me on track with the legal information I needed. Terri and her entire staff are very professional. I felt so carried for, I felt like I was supported legally, as well as personally. I would highly recommend Terri Harrington to anyone seeking legal advice! I feel very Blessed to have found her.

I sought Terri's expertise for some post-dissolution parenting time and other issues.Terri is smart, very knowledgable and understands the law, and was able to rightly guide me based on her immense experience as a lawyer and a mediator.She is a great listenener, and gives good recommendations based on client's positions and the law, and I trust and respect her expertise. She always considers children's best interests as a very high priority. I recommed her without hesitation for any family-law related matters.

I recently used Teri for binding arbitration. However she was able to get the parties to agree on what to do because her mediation skills are excellent. She is a great listener, has good feedback technique,
clearly knows the law, and in the end very helpful in getting to a fair settlement. Strongly recommend her.

Terri is smart and understands the law, as well as she understands the emotional, personal and financial needs of her clients. She helped me through a complex divorce with strength and knowledge, but also with great coaching. I have recommended Terri to many other friends and colleagues, as I trust and respect her expertise.

Very expensive and unproductive attempt at divorce mediation. Felt like she was there "punching the clock" and just billing the hours. Follow up was extremely dissapointing.
