Terri was recommend to me by a friend and she was very supported through the process of reviewing the premarital documents for my upcoming marriage. It was also in a short timeframe that we had to complete the documents. I am a retired women and she was able to explain the details and made me feel like I did come to the table with a stake in the relationship. Her staff is very friendly and helpful when you email or call into the office. I would recommend her for supportive and kind and very up front attorney.

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.
