"Using [CT Mediation] for a mediated divorce was a gift. [They are] compassionate while maintaining clear boundaries and neutrality. [They are] values teaching/coaching her clients how to negotiate in a respectful and productive manner. I most valued [their] 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, [they] 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 Attorney 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 Attorney Green for mediation whether it be divorce or any other type of mediation."
"Angela is a warm, kind, professional, educated woman. She helped me mediate through my divorce painlessly and without any additional stress. She instantly developed a rapport with my ex husband and I. Angela was able to guide us through a few bumps in the road by providing us with clear, fair options. She really should be commended for her professionalism. She was also great at working with my difficult schedule."
"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 child or 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 side note. she was extremely flexible with meeting times and methods of communication (Skype, etc.)."
"I just wanted send you a quick note regarding mediation. You were absolutely remarkable at separating the emotional aspects of dissolution to pull into focus our child and future. Your flexibility, kindness and patience can't be forgotten. My ex and I may not be able raise JC as a couple due to our paths diverging, but you were instrumental with setting the framework for us to co-parent effectively. Your ability at what you do is exemplary, and thank you whole-heartedly."
"[CT Mediation] made the divorce process as pleasant as possible and with very little fighting. [They] 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 ex-husband, would highly recommend to any couple to go through mediation with Attorney Angela Green."
"Went to her for a mediation. She was wonderful. Very knowledgeable, understanding 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."Mediation Client, posted on Avvo.com
"[CT Mediation] was very easy and pleasant to work with. [They] helped make one of the most difficult decisions of my life a comfortable transition. [Their] knowledge of the court system and divorce proceedings made the process simple from beginning to end."Mediation Client, posted on Avvo.com
"At a time when things are difficult and seemed your life is 'out of your control', Attorney 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 traumatic at times, and you thought you wouldn't get through it, she knew you could and keeped 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 [CT Mediation] for divorce mediation. Attorney 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 Attorney 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 Attorney 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 Attorney Green and would recommend her to anyone going through a divorce, but I hope to never need her again."Mediation Client, posted on Avvo.com
"Thank you Angela for all your patience. I know our case was not easy and I know we probably frustrated you at times with all our problems and schedules. You understood how we felt and you created options for us that we could select as ‘optimal’ for us and our children. I am most grateful for your skill and for the fact that we chose mediation. We saved money time and emotions with your services. Again, thank you for your patience and understanding."Mediation Client
