We believe that there is an appropriate, affordable solution to every problem, and we want to help you find yours.  For your convenience, Finger Lakes Mediation Services has locations in Victor and Brighton, New York.  We strive to provide our clients with a comfortable, private space where they can feel safe and confident.   

At Finger Lakes Mediation, we believe that every person has the right to voice their needs, their frustrations, their hopes and fears, while being actively listened to.  When you enter our offices, you can be confident that you are important and will be treated fairly without bias.
