“Great Insight, truly inspiring!”​

- Francesca King, Lawyer, Milano, Italy

- Kirsten Hytopoulos, Lawyer, Bainbridge Island, Washington

“Integrative Law is an important next step in the work of ‘humanitarian’ lawyers who have decided alternative dispute resolution is a better alternative to litigation. Litigators can benefit from learning these concepts for their own growth and insight into what clients experience in the divorce process.”

- Wendy Morgan, Lawyer, Santa Cruz, California

"I have studied with Pauline for at least 15 years. Her topics, methods and perspectives continue to evolve with the times. Her trainings in Collaborative Practice are better and more helpful than ever."

“ILI is putting humanity back into areas of law that are fundamentally based on human relationships. The time is right for this groundbreaking work and Pauline Tesler is a phenomenal leader, teacher and voice for this much-needed movement!”

- Ann Shulman, Philanthropy Consultant, Berkeley, California

“I am consistently inspired by the way your work is constantly and creatively evolving. Your genius at identifying end incorporating new perspectives, new languages, and new points of entry to the work - and your synthetic capacity - it keeps the work new, exciting and fresh for me and for so many members of our multidisciplinary community. I don't claim to have your talent in that area, but I will say that you have been one of my most important teachers right from the beginning of my work in the area of separation divorce, and particularly in the area of multidisciplinary teamwork. My background is in psychoanalytic theory, but I don1 think I would've had the confidence to apply what I know from that area in this field had it not been for you.”

- Kate Scharff, LCSW-C, LICSW, Washington, D.C.
