Jeff Ward Joins Miles Mediation & Arbitration in Savannah

SAVANNAH, April 1, 2021 – Miles Mediation & Arbitration, the largest ADR provider in the southeast, is proud to announce the addition of Jeff Ward to its panel in Savannah. Though based in Savannah, Ward mediates cases across south Georgia and metro Atlanta.


“As we continue to look for opportunities to expand our panel of talented neutrals, I’m thrilled to welcome Jeff to Miles,” said John Miles, CEO of Miles Mediation & Arbitration. “He is an experienced and respected litigator who can expertly mediate a wide variety of cases. He will be a great asset to our team.”


As well as trying cases to jury verdict in both state and federal court and regularly providing guidance and counsel to a variety of clients, Jeff served as regional trial counsel for a Fortune Five international retailer in professional negligence matters for several years. In addition, he represented clients ranging from Fortune 100 retail companies to hospitals, health care providers, and construction professionals. He has an AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, owed to his legal expertise and high ethical standards.


“When I started mediating about five years ago, I had no idea that it would become the central focus of my practice,” Ward shares. “After almost 20 years of being a trial lawyer, I’m excited about this new chapter in my career. I joined Miles because I have watched the company trail-blaze in the ADR arena from the day John opened its doors. The Miles commitment to efficient problem-solving for all parties, dedication to superior service, and focus on assembling a diverse depth of talent really resonated with me.”


In addition to his mediation career, Ward is the outgoing President of the Georgia Defense Lawyers Association (GDLA) and a member of the Georgia Chapter of the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals.
