Leesa A. Bohler

Leesa Bohler practiced law for more than 22 years specializing in insurance defense litigation, including personal injury and workers’ compensation, with an additional 16 years as an Administrative Law Judge for the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation in Savannah. After an impressive career in the courts, Leesa was excited to retire from her law practice in December 2021 to become a full-time mediator for Miles Mediation in Savannah.

She received her mediation training while a judge in 1997 and began mediating other judge’s cases that year. Leesa gained a wealth of experience hearing and mediating hundreds of cases for the state for 13 years. As a result, when she retired from the bench in 2010 to join Moore, Clarke, DuVall & Rodgers to help open the firm’s Savannah office, she began mediating cases in the private sector while defending clients in civil litigation for the firm. Over the past 11 years, Leesa found a mixed practice of litigation and mediation to be very rewarding. However, her mediation experience has recently become more personally fulfilling than litigation – perhaps because it is rewarding and challenging to assist parties in working out a resolution for their issues instead of leaving it up to strangers. It has been Leesa’s privilege to work with opposing parties toward a solution satisfactory to everyone involved without going into a courtroom. This realization led to her decision to give up the practice of law and focus solely on serving as a mediator in December 2021.

Miles’ Savannah office was the obvious choice for Leesa’s full-time mediation practice. She practiced law with Danny Cohen before she became a judge and she has known Sally Akins for many years. They are great mediators and friends to Leesa. Miles is home to her.
