About Talk Mediation Centers
Talk Mediation Centers was founded in Canandaigua, NY in 2013 by Eric Blazak and now has offices in both Canandaigua and Pittsford, NY, serving the Finger Lakes and the entire Rochester area. Eric is a licensed attorney and certified divorce mediator who chose to work in divorce, family and civil mediation over litigation after he became frustrated with the abrasive, formulaic, time consuming, expensive and often times, unjust and unreasonable outcomes in the family and civil courts. At Talk Mediation, the focus is on achieving amicable conflict resolutions, which are fair and acceptable to both parties, while consuming much less time and costing far less money.
Family Mediation is a very smart alternative to family court in so many ways. At Talk Mediation, modifications to visitation and custody orders are handled by attorney mediators in a low stress environment through meaningful communication between two caring parents. We understand that in these situations, everyone wants what is best for the children and we make sure that each issue surrounding what is best for them is addressed and documented. Children are not subjected to a long, drawn out battle in court, or child’s attorney investigations. Parents are not encouraged to attack one another but rather to try and work together to form a detailed plan for their children, their schedules and how they are to be raised in a way which both parents feel good about. Mediation with attorney mediators is a smarter, better process than family court and resolves in weeks, not months or years.
Divorce is never the intended end to a marriage when vows are exchanged but sometimes, unfortunately, couples drift apart. Divorce Mediation is quickly becoming the preferred resolution. Our divorce attorney-mediators guide you along to find a mutually beneficial resolution that leaves both parties feeling content. Our approach is a wise substitute for expensive divorce attorneys who lengthen the process while running up the financial and emotional burdens. While much less expensive, mediation is really for those wishing to find an amicable resolution, out of court, through thoughtful, respectful discussion rather than the unnecessary adversarial accusations and argument which accompany the court room.
