Andy Lax has served as a mediator and arbitrator since 1998 when he was certified as a North Carolina Superior Court mediator. Since then, he has mediated over 1,000 cases in state and federal courts in North Carolina and other Southeastern states. His extensive litigation and mediation experience allows him to see both sides of a dispute when seeking resolution. As an arbitrator, he is often selected as the third (neutral) arbitrator on three-person panels.

Andy worked as a litigation attorney for almost 40 years, and recently retired from his practice to focus on full-time mediation and arbitration. As a litigator, he handled cases for both plaintiffs and defendants in all North Carolina state courts, all federal district courts in the state, as well as courts in other states. He has received accolades by various rating entities, such as the SuperLawyer designation and Best Lawyers in America. He tried more than 200 civil cases in front of juries. His cases included a wide variety of litigation areas, including construction, business, insurance, contract, serious personal injury, wrongful death, medical and professional malpractice, and others. Andy joined Miles Mediation & Arbitration in April 2021.
