“Fascinating! Practical, though-provoking methodology to look at our duties as a lawyer in a new way.”

Melissa Atteberry, Chico, CA     www.atteberrylaw.net

“Society and the legal profession need this ‘new thought’ for resolving interpersonal conflicts. It is a humanistic approach that promotes empowerment for those who rely on us to ‘make it all better’”.

-PJ Hartman, Albuquerque, NM   www.pjhartman.com

“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, Berkeley, CA    http://www.greatergood.berkeley.edu/

“So very glad that I did not succumb to my reptilian/limbic brain at 5:30 am that was encouraging me to stay in my warm bed and sleep. Some other part of my brain (neocortex?) prevailed because after all 1. I paid for this, 2. I need the MCLE, and 3. I just might learn something worthwhile. Points 1. And 2. were valid, but more important, I learned so very much and loved every minute of it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”

Lorna Jaynes, Newark, CA    www.lornajaynes.com

“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, Santa Cruz, CA    www.wendybenjaminmorgan.com

“An informative and exciting course that every family law, litigator, and judicial officer should take to begin a profound shift in the way to think about our professional responsibilities to the families we serve.”

Pascha Stevens, Santa Cruz, CA

“Truly inspiring from a multitude of perspectives. . . . Brilliant! Thank you.”

“The conflict resolution framework provided by ILI offers lawyers the opportunity to bring a deeper, more comprehensive resolution to family conflict that will support and enhance healthy future relationships, and that can only be good for society, given that 55% of us will experience a family dissolution.”

-Gretchen M. Walther, Albuquerque, NM       www.waltherfamilylaw.com

“Fascinating topic:  so, it opened up many more questions than provided answers, but isn’t that what human interaction is all about?”

Carolann Mazza, Ft. Lauderdale, FL     ww.collaborativenow.com

“All clients are humans and humans have brains. Understanding more about human brain functions is critical to helping the client, rather than the litigation model which . . .has nothing to do with the personal relationships and interactions at issue in the conflict. Invaluable course!”

Jan Loomis, Westlake Village, CA    www.theloomislawfirm.com

“Great tools for a supportive and whole-person approach to addressing conflict in couples and families. Thought provoking content that will help practitioners recognize what goes on in the minds of our clients and ourselves, with broad applicability to both professional and personal life.”

Beth Appelsmith, Sacramento, CA     www.appelsmithlaw.com

“Thanks again, Pauline, for getting back to me and for everything that you are doing to make the law a profession we can all be proud of.”

Kirsten Hytopoulos, Bainbridge Island, WA www.IslandFamilyLaw.com

“What a refreshingly new and dynamic insight into our staid profession. You are to be congratulated for having the courage of your convictions in introducing Pauline to our fraternity here. Her presentation skills and enthusiasm for her groundbreaking approach are remarkable and very infectious.”

“Every lawyer should attend this seminar. It is that simple. What Pauline Tesler has done is condense much of the latest findings of neuroscience in a format which is both content-rich and palatable. Attending this seminar will not only give you another set of perspectives through which to view the entire legal profession, but a remarkable insight into human behaviour and how law is practiced in this context.”
