Vince was a French major at Rutgers University. He was drafted into the Army and discovered an interest in the study of law when a fellow soldier loaned him a book on torts. He was hooked. Vince served on active duty and then as an Army reservist for over 20 years. He attended Seton Hall Law School and moved on to a clerkship in Essex County with Family Court Judge Neil Duffy. He received the lead resulting in the clerkship from the man that went on to be the long-term Presiding Judge of the Family Part in Essex County – Retired Judge Thomas P. Zampino.

He worked as a general practice lawyer before joining the venerable law firm of Skoloff & Wolfe.

With the blessing of Gary Skoloff, Vince started his practice in Morristown and was quickly in front of the New Jersey Supreme Court.  Soon after, he formed a partnership with Mike Schlossberg. After Mr. Schlossberg passed away, he operated as a solo and now has reconstituted his firm with three partners Schlossberg, De Meo, & Giusti.  The firm operates under the name of Celli, Schlossberg, De Meo & Giusti, PC.

We discussed Vince’s journey from a young attorney when the divorce and family law business was itself a new phenomenon to the evolution of statutory and court rule changes that have pushed the practice into a negotiation, mediation, and arbitration centered business. He laments that we are greatly polarized as a practice and encourages lawyers to sit and reason into evolving into a kinder and gentler lawyer.  Please Enjoy!
