Who We Are

Middle Ground Mediators was established in 2009. It has been regularly engaged in mediation of disputes ranging from association disagreements, to EEOC complaints, to torts, to family law, to complex aviation matters. Our mediators are all certified and trained, and registered with the Georgia Supreme Court Office of Dispute Resolution. We are unique in that not all of our mediators are lawyers or judges, although several have those distinctions. We believe that a well-trained mediator can bring the parties together on even the most difficult issues and find middle ground.

Eric Smith

Eric Smith has had a lifelong fascination with the legal arena. However, school counselors and vocational specialists discouraged him from pursuing these interests in college due to his visual impairment. They reasoned that a person with low vision would face too many limits to work in those fields. Eric spent the next 14 years employed in hospitality, and during that time he volunteered as a youth counselor in the DeKalb County court system.
