Biographical Notes:

Stephen L. Goldner has been actively involved in civil litigation for almost 40 years.  He is uniquely positioned as a mediator, having been the founding partner of one of Atlanta’s premier defense firms and then devoting the last 10 years exclusively to handling wrongful death and catastrophic injury claims on the plaintiffs’ side.  Steve’s practice as a mediator and his personal practice over the course of his career have included numerous multi-million dollar cases which involved product liability, premises liability, tractor trailer and automobile injuries, medical malpractice, medical device and pharmaceutical claims.  His knowledge and years of personal experience in each of these areas has proven to be a valuable asset to the mediation process.  Mr. Goldner has mediated exclusively for the last 10 years with Miles Mediation & Arbitration Services.

Steve graduated from The University of Alabama in 1971 and received his J.D. degree from Cumberland School of Law in 1975. He practiced law in Birmingham, Alabama for 4 years before moving to Atlanta where he was an associate at Smith, Cohen, Ringel, Kohler & Martin (now Smith, Gambrell & Russell).  He was selected for partnership there in 1983. Steve was the founding partner of Goldner, Sommers, Scrudder & Bass (1983-2004), where he specialized in defense product liability, premises liability and medical malpractice claims. In 2004 he devoted his practice exclusively to plaintiffs’ personal injury cases, focusing on product and premises liability, medical malpractice, as well as medical device and pharmaceutical claims.

Mr. Goldner was admitted to the Supreme Court of the United States in 1996 and is currently a member of the state bars of Georgia and Alabama.  He has been rated an AV preeminent attorney, the highest possible peer review rating in legal ability and ethical standards, for over 25 years.  Mr. Goldner was selected as one of Georgia's "Super Lawyers" in the field of product liability and has been an invited speaker by both the Georgia Defense Lawyers Association and the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association.  Steve was selected for membership in the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals and is also a member of the Georgia Academy of Mediators and Arbitrators.  Mr. Goldner is of counsel to the Bird Law Group, P.C. in Atlanta, Georgia.

Steve's passion is travel—when time permits. He and his wife, Jane, have two sons, Andrew and Gregory.
