Totowa, NJ (PRWEB) June 14, 2014
Retiring after fifteen years spent as a respected Superior Court Judge in New Jersey, Elijah L. Miller has announced his membership in both leading alternative dispute resolution (ADR) websites, Arbitration.com and Mediation.com. The announcement comes as the retired judge launches his mediation and arbitration practice.
“In my service as a judge, I always tried to guide the people appearing in my court towards settlements prior to trial whenever appropriate,” said Miller. “That involved hundreds of trials (jury and non-jury), and the management of thousands of cases – motions, hearings, settlements and all other sundry matters. As a judge, you learn how to forge agreement and keep everyone in your court on the right path, and I’ll bring those skills to my new practice.”
With more than forty years of hands-on experience in a wide range of legal fields, including personal injury, construction, contract dispute, consumer fraud, corporate dispute, employment discrimination, land use, professional malpractice, wrongful termination, complex case management, insurance law, and many others, Mr. Miller can act as a qualified neutral in a broad range of complex matters.
Additionally, prior to serving as a judge, Mr. Miller had extensive experience in private practice, dealing with cases involving medical malpractice, personal injury, business transactions, and corporate law. He later joined the Office of the Public Defender, where he served as a trial attorney and regional managing attorney, supervising more than thirty other lawyers and their support staff. Mr. Miller has also served as a peer educator, teaching trial practices to attorneys in New Jersey as well as all over the country.
