Collectively, Ms. Williamson, Ms. Akins, and Mr. Cohen will strive to hear any case in need of alternative dispute resolution in Coastal-, Middle-, and South Georgia, as well as the Atlanta region and South Carolina.
“I have known Wendy Williamson for over 30 years, as a practicing attorney and as a mediator,” said Daniel Cohen, Miles Team Leader. “She is incredibly intelligent and keen on all aspects of mediation. Her ability to empathize with parties, educate and motivate counsel and parties, and to be creative in the mediation environment makes her one of the best mediators in the state,” Cohen continued. “We are lucky to have her as part of the Coastal Georgia-based team.”
Ms. Williamson is an appointed member of the Governor’s Georgia Commission on Child Support, which establishes and assesses child support guidelines, creates and maintains the Georgia Child Support Calculator, assists in crafting state legislation and provides training for judges, attorneys, and civilians.

“Mediation has been my passion for thirty years. The more complex, the greater the struggle, the bigger the hill, I find satisfaction in joining attorneys and their parties on the journey to finding closure through mediation,” said Ms. Williamson. “I am thrilled to be joining my good friends Danny Cohen and Sally Akins at Miles Mediation where I will spend my days doing what I love: mediating efficiently and effectively and crafting complete agreements.”
Ms. Williamson received her J.D. from University of Georgia School of Law in 1985 and her B.A. from the University of Georgia in 1982.
