“I was referred to Terri Harrington, at Harrington Brewster Mahoney Smits, as a mediator in a very messy divorce. The complications were many and there was potential for emotions to run very high. I was sure that mediation would take several very long and trying sessions, costing a lot. However, Terri was able to take our ‘mess’ and resolve it in the first meeting by 3:00 pm. Terri is worth every penny and much, much more.”

“I think Terri is one of the best mediators in town. She has mediated several cases I’ve been involved with, and they all settled -- even the difficult ones where I had serious doubts that the parties would ever be able to resolve their issues. I think Terri does a great job helping the parties (and their attorneys) see the strengths and weaknesses of their respective positions, and helps them understand the benefits of reaching a settlement collaboratively. I would not hesitate to recommend Terri as a mediator."

“I have known Terri Harrington for twenty (20) years. I have had several family law cases with Ms. Harrington.  In the last ten years our cases have been Collaborative Law Family Law cases. I am in a collaborative practice group with Terri, and have been for over ten (10) years. She is unfailingly compassionate, energetic and committed to her clients and the process of collaborative law as a choice for the right clients. She has spearheaded the collaborative law movement in the state, working tirelessly to promote the process, educate both our colleagues and the public and train new lawyers. She has brought in nationally known speakers in the field and done countless trainings herself. She has also won the Collaborator of the year award at least once. Terri is truly one of the bright lights in the collaborative law and alternative dispute area of family law. I have not met a colleague more dedicated to her clients regardless of complexity, or income.  Our profession needs more attorneys with the dedication, competence and compassion of Terri Harrington.”

“I have known attorney Terri Harrington for twenty years and have had several cases with her as opposing counsel in family law.  She has always been competent, courteous, reasonable and compassionate.  She is an indefatigable member of the Family Law section of the Colorado Bar and is one of the earliest members of Colorado Collaborative Law Professionals.  It is in the context of her dedication to families in transition, due to changes in family structure that I nominate her.  She has committed her professional life to this endeavor and never declines an invitation to speak about collaborative law, or about how to help the children of divorcing or separating families.  If I had to name one person who has kept the collaborative law movement progressing in Colorado, it would be Terri Harrington hands down. I think it is particularly challenging to be in the forefront of a change in the law (much like mediation was in the 1980's) and to be willing to put in the time to learn a new paradigm, educate the public and fellow professionals  and to champion the rights and dignity of all involved in what can be a traumatic and expensive process.”
