Matthew J. Konenkamp
About Matthew J. KonenkampMatt Konenkamp has a diverse practice that ranges from real estate to personal injury litigation. This includes handling complex real estate litigation and transactions, consulting with real estate brokerages and agents to help them manage transactions and compliance issues and handling other types of complex litigation and transactions. It also includes a vast array of other issues that are capable of being resolved through strategic negotiation or alternatively through litigation. Matt is a trained mediator, negotiator and facilitator. He received his training at the #1 ranked school in the United States for Alternative Dispute Resolution, the Strauss Institute and has received additional training at the University of Denver and in Chicago under the tutelage of a Northwestern Law Professor. Matt provides cutting edge solutions to today's legal problems and approaches conflict with a view to solve it through strategic negotiation in an effort to save his clients money. Matt is a capable trial attorney, however, and if negotiations fail to achieve an acceptable result for his client, litigation is always an option.
In addition to maintaing his law practice Matt is the President and Founder of The South Dakota Dispute Resolution Center, which serves clients by helping them reach practical solutions to issues that otherwise would be resolved through years of litigation. The South Dakota Dispute Resolution Center serves people and businesses who choose not to spend years and tens of thousands of dollars fighting, but who want to reach a practical result in a comparatively short amount of time.
Matt believes strongly in community service and has therefore spent a great deal of time working with local charities. Matt served as the President of the Rapid City Area Jaycees, a charitable organization that focuses almost entirely on providing for underprivileged or disabled children, as the Director of Toys For Tots for Western South Dakota, as the Chairman of the YMCA Kids Campaign and as an organizer of Children's Care Hospital annual fundraiser.
Matt is married to Joslyn Konenkamp and they have a two little boys named Jack and Luke. Matt and Joslyn are expecting twins in January, 2012.
