“Says Forrest S. Woody Mosten of Los Angeles, a strong proponent of mediation, it is a ‘bottom-up’ rather than a ‘bottom-down’ process that allows a divorcing couple to determine more directly the course of their lives.”

Divorce—Mediation Style
American Bar Association Journal, February 1997

“People are much happier when they control their own destiny.”

Forrest S. Mosten
