Katy Miller earned her reputation as a first-rate employment attorney, tough litigator and savvy negotiator over a 25-year career that included successfully pursuing class/collective actions in age and gender discrimination cases. Katy began her legal career in 1980 with Holland & Hart, and in 1985 joined the law firm of Miller & Steiert, P.C. She emphasized employment law and workplace disputes before moving to full-time practice as a neutral.
Having spent decades in the courtroom, Katy founded Littleton Alternative Dispute Resolution, Inc. to help parties avoid expensive, divisive litigation. She has witnessed first-hand the toll litigation takes on individuals and organizations and since 2006 has worked exclusively as an independent neutral in various capacities – mediator, arbitrator, and independent investigator.
The bulk of Katy’s practice is by referral. Over 90% of the hundreds of mediations she has conducted are resolved at mediation. She currently sits on the arbitration and mediation panels for labor and employment cases of the American Arbitration Association. She has mediated cases for the Office of Dispute Resolution for the State of Colorado and the EEOC, and has significant experience resolving class/collective actions.
Katy has lectured extensively to lawyers and human resource professionals on a variety of employment issues, and is co-managing editor of The Practitioner’s Guide to Colorado Employment Law. She has been included in The Best Lawyers in America for over twenty years and is listed in the areas of both Labor and Employment Law and Alternative Dispute Resolution. Katy has been named by her peers as a Super Lawyer/ADR Professional annually since 2006. She is a member of the prestigious College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. In 2010, Katy was selected to the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals, and was selected in 2014 as Barrister’s Best Mediator by Law Week Colorado.
