Keren Abrams is a knowledgeable, thoughtful, and gentle listener with a talent for helping people. I learned more about best communication practices and how I can apply them in co-parenting. Her wisdom and generosity is truly a gift. If you have an opportunity to work with her, I highly recommend that you do.

Our History

40 years ago, Susan McMeans and Jerome Ginsburg

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 approach to family legal disputes.

It was their vision that if parties could get together with a lawyer/counselor team to work through the issues of their divorce or separation, that with that balanced approach, they could reach a resolution that would be in their best interests of the parties and their children.

They trained in Los Angeles specifically regarding this team approach. In 1982 they opened also a satellite office in Albuquerque. They mediated for hundreds of clients over the years.  

They continued the Mediation Center, working together with couples until Susan was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2009 and died in 2012. Since then, Jerome continued working both as a mediator and traditional lawyer until his recent retirement in December of 2019.
