Gabrielle was amazing. She is supportive, creative, caring, and very knowledgeable. I cannot imagine going through this difficult process without her guidance. She saved us from ourselves and our family is grateful for that. Thank you Gabrielle!!

In my first few minutes connecting with Gabrielle, I knew she was the one. She’s a great listener and was incredibly informative. She provided comfort in a time of need and pointed me in the right direction. Highly recommend!

Gabrielle was wonderful! Knowledgeable, Clear, Concise, Helpful. As my counsel, She helped me get perspective and advocate for myself within mediation which was taking place with a different mediator. I never felt she was wasn’t pushing me to go to court which was my fear after listening to friends stories about what would happen if I lawyers got involved. I would recommend her to anyone!

Gabrielle helped both of us make sense of a very emotional and confusing time. The process (and it is a process unfortunately) doesn’t have to be a painful one. And she made us realize that! It may seem like you don’t know where to begin if you’re reading this, we’ll I’d like to say start here. Best of luck. And thank you Gabrielle.

Going through a Divorce obviously is extremely stressful and a very emotional thing to go through. We decided to give mediation a try. My ex and I were able to be civil and going through mediation helped us mantain that relationship which was extremely important to us for the sake of our children. Working with Gabrielle was the best decision we made. She was warm and easy going and made sure to remain fair to the both of us. We used zoom and that was very helpful. She was always able to accommodate our crazy schedule. She stayed on top of both our lawyers who tended to be on a much slower pace. I cannot speak highly enough about Gabrielle. She made things happen and it is because of her we were able to come up with a fair agreement in a timely manner. I highly recommend using her if you decide to give mediation a try

Gabrielle is thorough, efficient, experienced and incredibly knowledgeable. She wastes no time to distill the problems. One of the best attorney mediators I have ever had the pleasure to work with!

Is it possible to get along better? Yes, with 3 simple steps for conflict resolution!

Conflict is everywhere―in our homes, at work, on our social media feeds. But conflict isn’t inherently bad… in fact, it’s a normal and healthy part of human relationships, but many of us aren’t good at managing conflict in our everyday lives.

In The Secret to Getting Along (And Why it’s Easier Than You Think!), divorce attorney and mediator Gabrielle Hartley brings more than two decades of divorce mediation experience to helping you learn how to resolve conflict in ways that strengthen your relationships, reflect your values, and lead to positive outcomes for everyone involved.

Reading this book will change everything you thought you knew about conflict resolution and how to actually get along better. “
― Natasha Sizlo, author of All Signs Point To: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Paris

“Gabrielle Hartley’s approach to conflict resolution is simple, effective, and potentially life-changing. A must-read in this world that feels increasingly at odds!”
― Susan Guthrie, Esq, co-founder and CEO, Mosten Guthrie Academy

“The Secret to Getting Along (And Why it’s Easier Than You Think) offers step-by-step tools to manage conflict and move through it so you can actually have greater connection.”
― Elizabeth Cohen, PhD, clinical psychologist and author of Light at the Other Side of Divorce

While many of us may be better together, some of us can actually become BETTER APART
