Collaborative Practice San Diego member co-authors book on client representation

Forrest (Woody) Mosten, a member of the Collaborative Practice San Diego association, is one of three authors behind the new book Effectively Representing Clients in Family Mediation.

The book is published through the ABA (American Bar Association) and has national distribution. The book is available now.

“To write a book is quite a feat for anyone,” said Collaborative Practice President Myra Fleischer. “To have that book picked up for publishing by a national professional association raises it to a new level. The ABA agreed to publish the book after reviewing it to make sure it met their high standards. Collaborative Practice San Diego is delighted to be able to share Mr. Mosten’s accomplishment in writing the book.”

The book has 12 chapters discussing the family mediation process and how the professionals working with the family can do their best job.

Some chapters are:

  • Expanding your practice by representing clients in Mediation
  • Family Lawyer as Dispute Resolution Manager
  • Mediation Confidentiality
  • Representing Clients in Court-Ordered Mediation

“Collaborative divorce is the easiest way to legally end an adult relationship,” Ms. Fleischer said. “When both sides can agree on how to separate and divide assets and responsibilities, then it makes life easier for all involved. At Collaborative Practice San Diego, we are pleased to be able to help couples divorce peacefully and with respect.”

Collaborative divorce involves more than attorneys. Mental health professionals, child advocates and financial advisors are often part of the process. They help both sides learn what is necessary for a divorce, how to go through the process and how to live once the divorce is over.

Ms. Fleischer said the new book is a valuable resource for professionals in collaborative divorce practice. While Mr. Mosten and the Collaborative Practice San Diego are based in California, the book covers principles that apply across the nation. The book can be ordered online at
