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 actions in age and gender discrimination cases.
Having spent decades in the courtroom, Katy founded Littleton Alternative Dispute Resolution, Inc., in 1997 to help people avoid expensive, divisive litigation. She has witnessed first-hand the toll litigation takes on individuals and organizations and now works exclusively as an independent neutral in various capacities - mediator, arbitrator, independent investigator, labor cases and Consent Decree Monitor.
The bulk of Katy's practice is by referral. Over 90 percent of the hundreds of mediations she has conducted resolved at mediation. She currently sits on the arbitration panel for 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, including many class action cases. She volunteers to mediate cases for the Probate Court of the City and County of Denver. In addition, she serves as a monitor under class action consent decrees/settlement agreements for the federal government.
In the employment field, Katy handles cases related to sexual harassment; sex, race and age discrimination; wrongful termination; teacher dismissal, ADA, and FLSA. In all of these areas, she has experience mediating class actions and other large or complicated cases. She also has experience mediating class actions in the toxic tort arena.
Katy is a founding member of The Elder Mediation Alliance, and mediates family disputes involving the myriad issues related to the aging population.
