Brian B. Miles
Brian Banker Miles is a trial lawyer who has been practicing law in California since 1997. He is a skilled writer and public speaker who has consistently obtained positive results for his clients in civil trials, arbitrations, mediations and protracted settlement negotiations.
Mr. Miles specializes in insurance law, real estate, and commercial litigation. He has obtained millions of dollars for commercial and residential property owners in the areas of insurance bad faith, insurance coverage, landslides, design and construction defects, product defects, lien claims and deeds of trust, and real estate non-disclosure.
In 2003, Mr. Miles expanded his practice to include prosecution of long-term care insurance claims. He has since obtained both insurance contract benefits and extra-contractual benefits on behalf of several policyholders whose claims were unreasonably denied by their insurers. As a result of his expertise in long-term care insurance, Mr. Miles was interviewed by the New York Times for its March 26, 2007 article on long-term care insurance (Aged, Frail and Denied Care By Their Insurers).
Outside of litigation, Mr. Miles assists real estate and business clients with contract negotiations, drafting of agreements, purchase, sale and leasing of real property, and interpretation of insurance policies. He enjoys acting as general counsel for small business owners.
Mr. Miles is a graduate of McGeorge School of Law and Amherst College. He is a member of the Contra Costa County Bar Association and works frequently with United Policyholders, a non-profit organization which advocates for the rights of insurance policyholders.
