Wendy Miele Joins Rogers, Sheffield & Campbell Law Firm

Wendy Miele, a civil litigator for more than 20 years, has joined the law firm of Rogers, Sheffield & Campbell, LLP, in Santa Barbara.

Miele's practice focuses on all aspects of real estate, trust and business litigation, and the representation of individuals, investors and financial institutions. She has expertise in handling complex business disputes involving claims of fraud and unfair competition.

She also has expertise in land use, land title and environmental law.

Prior to joining Rogers, Sheffield & Campbell, Miele worked for Severson & Werson, a regional firm, where she was on the Bank of America team and handled a high-volume caseload of mortgage litigation work.

The issues she worked on generally involved lien validity and priority claims, reverse mortgages, alleged false credit reporting, work outs, real estate and purchase/sale contracts.

Miele was part of the team recognized with Bank of America’s Mortgage Litigation Excellence Award and acclaimed for defending it in California without a single adverse verdict.

From 2006 through 2010, while serving as a senior associate attorney with Ropers, Majeski, Kohn & Bentley in Los Angeles, Miele, prosecuted asset-recovery actions related to real estate-fraud schemes.

She also defended insurance brokers in FINRA arbitrations relating to annuities and alleged broker misconduct.

Miele graduated from Duke University and received a law degree from Wake Forest School of Law. She was admitted to the California Bar in 1993.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
