The Forensic Accounting Deskbook: A Practical Guide to Financial Investigation and Analysis for Family Lawyers

Forward by Randall M. Kessler For as long as I have known Miles Mason, he has been a thoughtful leader and practitioner in the domestic relations arena. I first got to know Miles over 10 years ago when we were traveling the Tennes- see circuit together, lecturing from Knoxville to Nashville to Mem- phis. From that experience, as well as from observing him present two exceptional CLE programs in Atlanta, I have come to understand that Miles Mason is indeed one of the foremost authorities in the country on forensic accounting and business valuation in family law cases. Over the years, Miles has always been available to me and to others in our Atlanta, Georgia, firm to help with questions in this area, and we have benefited greatly from his advice. The Forensic Accounting Deskbook is the end result of over 10 years of thought and energy that he has devoted to the subject, and it is wonderful that he has decided to share it with the rest of us.
