Our History

Susan McMeans and Jerome Ginsburg

40 years ago, founded the first private family mediation center in Santa Fe.

Jerome was a practicing attorney and Susan was both a paralegal and family counselor. After working together in a traditional law office, they saw a great need for a different and comprehensive approach to family legal disputes.

It was their vision that if parties could get together with a lawyer/counselor male/female team, that this unique balanced approach,would yield greater chance of resolutions for them and their children. Together, they trained in Los Angeles specifically for innovating this team approach. It is our tradition to be forerunners in innovative and effective approaches in the field of ADR and for folks who need help navigating rough waters.

Since 1981

…the center has been serving clients in Santa Fe. In 1982, Jerome and Susan also opened a satellite office for the Center in Albuquerque. They mediated hundreds of clients over the years. In 2009 Susan was diagnosed with lung cancer and died in 2012. Beginning in 2002 Jerome worked both as a mediator and traditional lawyer until his retirement in December of 2019.
