Team Leader Joseph Murphey, Esq, a mediator and arbitrator at Miles, recently shared insights about negotiation and settlement tactics at an Auto Injury Litigation seminar.  The seminar was held in Atlanta and presented by the National Business Institute, Inc. Murphey’s presentations were each available for 1.0 hour of CLE credit.

Murphey’s first presentation centered on “Negotiating with Auto Insurance Adjusters,” including techniques for going beyond an adjuster’s settlement authority and how to restart stalled negotiations. His second presentation focused on bad faith, specifically adjuster case evaluation strategies; top bad faith insurance company tactics and how to prove them; and incident scene investigation tactics and biased IMEs.

Mediator Bianca Motley Broom

Miles mediator Bianca Motley Broom was recently featured in a thoughtful Daily Report article by reporter Meredith Hobbs.
In the article, Bianca discusses her growing mediation practice and part-time role as a magistrate court judge in Fulton County.  When discussing the importance of the mediator’s role, she said:

“Typically in a trial, someone walks away unhappy. That’s where a good mediator comes in. It doesn’t take much skill to run numbers back and forth from room to room. It’s important to understand what motivates people. It’s not always money. Sometimes people are feeling ignored, disrespected or marginalized. A good mediator is going to pick up on that.”
