Christian Miles is an Associate at Tyson & Mendes’ Las Vegas office. He has extensive litigation experience representing a wide array of individuals and businesses in Nevada state and federal courts. He practices primarily in personal injury litigation, including wrongful death, motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, product liability, and medical malpractice. He also has experience in HOA litigation, mortgage banking defense, probate litigation, and estate planning.
Mr. Miles has successfully defended and resolved high value cases at every stage of the litigation process, up to and including trial. He recently defended a case at trial against a plaintiff seeking seven figures in damages from a vehicle collision involving a moped. He persuaded the jury to assign equal comparative fault to plaintiff and disregard plaintiff’s overstated damages. Plaintiff petitioned the jury for seven figures in damages but only recovered $35,000.00. In addition to his trial experience, Mr. Miles has also achieved success with discovery and dispositive motion practice in his cases. He was recently retained to rehabilitate a case where discovery had closed, important discovery tasks were uncompleted, and an essential defense expert had not been retained or disclosed. Mr. Miles drafted and successfully argued a motion to re-open discovery, extend the discovery deadlines by nine months, and re-open the initial expert disclosure deadline, thereby positioning the case to be properly defended.
Mr. Miles has practiced law in Nevada since 2013. He obtained his J.D. from the University of Cincinnati College of Law in 2013. While in law school, he served on the Immigration and Nationality Law Review and spent two summers prosecuting cases as a legal intern for the Cincinnati Prosecutor’s Office. He obtained his B.S. in Exercise Science from Brigham Young University in 2010.
Mr. Miles was raised in the Las Vegas Valley and is proud to call the area home. In his free time, he enjoys movies, gaming, reading, cooking, traveling, and spending time with his family.
