Attorney Jacqueline L. Kemp is the founder and owner of Kemp Law Group, LLC, in Dublin, Ohio. Certified as a specialist in family law by the Ohio State Bar Association with over 23 years of legal experience, Ms. Kemp focuses her practice exclusively on family law and providing the quality, effective advocacy and support her clients deserve for their legal issues involving divorce, child custody and visitation, legal separation, stepparent adoptions and other domestic relations matters.

A 1993 cum laude graduate of The Ohio State University, Ms. Kemp obtained her Juris Doctor cum laude from Capital University Law School in Columbus in 1996. While in law school, she clerked for the late Harold R. Kemp, who became her mentor for over 15 years during her time at the Kemp, Schaeffer & Rowe law firm in Columbus.

Her passion for family law and her desire to more directly serve the needs of her clients led to her establishing her own private practice, and she finds great reward in helping to affect real, positive changes in the lives of so many while helping them through their difficult and uncertain times.

Serving clients throughout the greater Columbus metro region and all of Franklin and Delaware counties, Ms. Kemp is fully committed to working to do what is necessary to help her clients resolve their conflicts and reach their goals as efficiently as possible. A consummate professional, she is an active member in many local, state and national bar associations, and she gives back to her local community through her involvement with various civic and charitable organizations, including the Pleasure Guild of Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Recognized for her impeccable professionalism and service, Ms. Kemp holds an AV-Preeminent* peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell as well as a 10 out of 10 rating from AVVO. Regarded as one of the country's top family law attorneys, she received the Lifetime Achievement award from America's Top 100 Attorneys in 2016, and in 2015, Corporate LiveWire named her as Lawyer of the Year for family law. In addition, she has received recognition from The Best Lawyers in America** for family law.
