Fair, Effective, Persistent
A former trial judge with 15 years' experience arbitrating hundreds of cases and mediating thousands more. I help lawyers and their clients resolve both international and domestic disputes in a way that makes the process work for them.

A Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and a former trial judge. I have arbitrated more than one hundred claims and I have mediated thousands more. Experienced in construction, business and commercial, employment, injury, real estate and professional negligence.

I am available to serve internationally and domestically as an arbitrator, mediator, insurance claim umpire, special master, receiver, early neutral evaluator and appointed judge.

Judge Miller presided over one of Colorado's busiest trial courts for nearly twelve years, where he was praised by attorneys, litigants and jurors for his sense of fairness, his preparation, and his ability to understand and communicate complex factual and legal concepts clearly. He brings those same skills to his arbitration and mediation practice.

Judge Miller's undergraduate and graduate background in the sciences make him especially capable of quickly grasping technical, scientific and medical evidence.

Background

Mediation

“Mediation is a place where a party can much more fully, safely and comfortably tell their story than they ever could in a courtroom...and with none of the expense of trial, and resolved on their terms rather than a judge’s or a jury’s” As a former judge who presided over hundreds of jury- and bench trials, and as a mediator who has mediated thousands of disputes, I can very confidently say that mediation, done right, is a party’s day in court, and a much more satisfying day than the real day in court can possibly be. Mediation is a place where a party can much more fully, safely and comfortably tell their story than they ever could in a courtroom. A party leaves a mediation feeling that they have been heard. They leave a mediation with their dispute resolved with none of the stress and expense of trial, and resolved on their terms rather than a judge’s or a jury’s. That is the measure of a mediation done right.

Arbitration

“Arbitration, done right, really does provide a speedier, more efficient, much more cost-effective, and tailored-to-the-dispute alternative to litigation” As a former trial judge who presided over hundreds of jury trials and countless bench trials and hearings, and who loved every minute of that job and the hardworking people with whom I worked, I am nevertheless convinced that the courtroom is the last place a dispute should be decided. Arbitration, done right, really does provide a speedier, more efficient, much more cost-effective, and tailored-to-the-dispute alternative to litigation. Arbitration, done right, provides parties and counsel a forum where they can be more fully and fairly heard than in a courtroom. That is the measure of an arbitration done right, and those are the values that guide me as an arbitrator.
