ATLANTA, GA., October 31, 2016: Miles Mediation & Arbitration Services, the largest ADR firm in Georgia, today announced that it earned the highest honors in Daily Report’s Annual Best Of Reader Rankings Survey. Miles was named the #1 Alternative Dispute Resolution Firm, and Gregory J. Parent, Team Leader at Miles, earned the distinction of being voted the #1 Mediator/Arbitrator. John Miles, founder of Miles, was voted the #2 Mediator/Arbitrator.

This is the third consecutive year Miles was voted into the top spot, and Mr. Parent’s inaugural award is a category that the Daily Report added this year—a testament to the growing industry of ADR and the need to identify top mediators and arbitrators.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as the premier ADR firm in Georgia,” said John Miles. “I am proud of this accomplishment, not because we won an award, but because of what it represents. It represents our clients’ trust, and it’s their trust that has led to the growth and success of Miles. Greg’s achievement is even more remarkable when you consider that he has only been mediating since 2012. He’s the best in the state and his best years are still ahead of him.”

David Schaeffer recently returned from a climbing expedition to Mount Cho Oyu in the Himalayas, the sixth tallest mountain in the world. An avid climber, David used his recent expedition to raise money for an endowment fund called “Highest Heights” that was created to help the Atlanta Bar Association’s summer law internship program. The purpose of the internship program is to help alumni achieve their goals of becoming lawyers.

In an interview with the Daily Report prior to his hike, David described the program as “the best program that the Atlanta Bar Association has. It makes a difference in these kids’ lives.”

Inspired to contribute to Highest Height’s ambitious goal of raising $100,000, David proposed a fundraiser idea to S. Wade Malone of Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, who helps run the program and established its fund. David’s idea was to ask the legal community to support his cause by pledging one cent for every foot of Cho Oyu’s elevation (26,906 feet)  he completed.

David returned to Atlanta a couple weeks ago.  He had to unexpectedly turn around at just under 21,300 feet on the steep snow slopes above Camp One (21,000 feet altitude) after climbing up from the Chinese Base Camp at 16,100 feet, an Intermediate Camp at 17,700 feet, and an Advanced Base Camp at 18,750 feet.  But to put his final accomplishment into perspective, David climbed more than 1,000 feet higher than the top of Denali, the highest mountain in North America.

As a result of the fundraiser, 70 donors have contributed almost $15,000 to Highest Heights. The donation amounts have ranged from $213 (consistent with David’s final distance) on up. It is not too late to pledge $213 (or any amount) to help support the program. For more information contact Denisha Wise at the Atlanta Bar Association: 404-537-4932 or dwise@atlantabar.org.

David has successfully climbed some of the highest mountains in the world. And despite how grueling and unforgiving extreme mountain climbing can be on one’s physical and mental being, David treks on in pursuit of higher heights (his next climb is to the Alps) and noble causes. Everyone at Miles applauds his efforts and that of the Atlanta Bar Association. We are proud to be associated with such a charitable organization and honored to have such a compassionate and hard-working individual as David on our panel.
