About my Practice

My practice is bifurcated into two areas.

Uroboros Mediations: Divorce Coaching, Mediation Prep, Training, Speaking Engagements, and Consulting/Dispute Resolution Designing

Uroboros Mediations is a dispute resolution company that aims to provide relief in the lives of our clients through divorce coaching, mediation services through Miles, mediation prep, consulting with organizations, and much more. We believe that divorce coaching isn’t necessarily divorcing a person from their spouse, but it can also divorce yourself from habits, dynamics, and mindsets that are counterproductive and harmful. We try to help our clients reinvigorate their marriages, if possible. If they decide to exit their marriage, we can help with the announcement, find your divorce team and other needed professionals, and be present through the divorce process until the end. Afterward, we help clients rebuild a happier, more authentic life, whether that’s co-parenting, dating, work-life balance, redefining one’s self, and much more.

Please visit our website or follow us on our socials to learn more about Uroboros Mediations.

Miles Mediation & Arbitration: Mediation and Neutral Services

Miles Mediation & Arbitration was founded before Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) became a recognized practice area. When he founded the firm in 2000, founder John K. Miles, Jr. understood the economic and emotional value of using ADR as a tool for resolution. Our firm is one of the largest ADR providers in the country, with offices in Atlanta, Savannah, Charlotte, Nashville, and Jacksonville.

We provide a comprehensive array of dispute management services aimed at helping clients manage their disputes on their own terms as much as possible. Whether through arbitration, mediation, or various types of claim evaluation or dispute facilitation, our clients typically come to us seeking to take control of their disputes in a welcoming environment.

Like other challenges, disputes tend to take on a life of their own, costing money, time, and focus. We believe our job is to work creatively and collaboratively with our clients to help them dispute with purpose.
