The ruling led to a highly favorable settlement for Miles’s client.

Outside of the office, I am an avid traveler and diehard sports fan. Although I love exploring new places all over the world, nothing beats the annual trips to my family’s cabin on Flathead Lake, Montana and Glacier National Park. When I don’t have my suitcase, it’s always a safe bet to find me at Seattle sporting events, or out for a run or cycle on Bainbridge Island where I grew up and still call home.
