Doug Wilde is a full-time mediator and arbitrator who joined Miles more than a decade ago after experiencing the benefits of mediation over litigation for the parties involved. He has nearly 40 years of experience as a trial lawyer, focusing primarily on premises liability matters, including slip-and-falls, third-party criminal acts, and false arrest and malicious prosecution cases. Doug has represented both plaintiffs and defendants, and his clients have included large national grocery chains, big box stores, hotels, apartment complexes, and restaurants.
Doug is able to see all sides of an issue and recognizes the inherent risks to both plaintiffs and defendants in these kinds of cases, making him a talented and sought-after mediator. In addition to premises liability cases, Doug mediates cases involving auto accidents, professional negligence, medical malpractice, and other personal injury claims. He is committed to helping parties resolve their disputes; even if a matter impasses at mediation, he will continue to reach out to the parties afterwards and is often able to successfully settle the case post-mediation.
