Kenneth F. Rempell, Esq. is “of counsel” to the law firm. At the beginning of 2008, Mr. Rempell committed to the principle that family matters, especially divorce, are not well served by the adversarial legal system. He appreciates that divorces are about people and the legal system is oftentimes ill-equipped to handle the interplay of strong emotions with the resolution of financial matters and parenting issues. He seeks for clients a resolution that does not entail protracted, expensive litigation. Mr. Rempell limits his practice exclusively to matrimonial issues. The same dynamics are in play during a “business divorce,” whether a family business or a professional partnership.
Mr. Rempell is a trained mediator and collaborative practitioner. These are non-adversarial approaches to negotiation. As a collaborative attorney since 2008 he has sought to work as part of an interdisciplinary team to effectively address the complexity of divorce and other family issues. When used appropriately, the results are significantly superior to other alternative processes.
Since 2008, Mr. Rempell as has been very involved in the Collaborative Law movement. He trains others, presents his theories to law students, and constantly works to enhance skills central to negotiation in general and in collaborative divorce in particular.
Ken Rempell co-founded and served as president of the New Jersey Collaborative Law Group. He is a founding member of the New Jersey Council of Collaborative Practice Groups, the statewide umbrella organization, and he has served on committees of the International Association of Collaborative Practitioners (IACP). Mr. Rempell is also a member of the New Jersey Center for Collaborative Divorce and Mediation – a group of practitioners committed to working as an interdisciplinary team to better address all divorce needs.
