Review Nanette Stringer

About Me

I am a Certified Specialist in Family Law, and have practiced family law exclusively on the Peninsula since 1983.   I have a special interest in alternative dispute resolution, which includes mediation, acting as a mediation consultant, and representing clients in negotiating settlements with the help of private judges, but I also represent clients in the public courts in both San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.   I also frequently work with clients from throughout the Bay Area to prepare premarital agreements.

  • Nancy Maria Martinez

    Nanette was my divorce attorney and is now my colleague/mentor. Nanette is extremely knowledgeable about family law-both about the substantive issues and the practical things one learns from experience. She keeps up to date with the latest developments in the field and provides her clients with the very best family law advice out there. Nanette is also great at keeping antagonism and hostility to a minimum in the divorces she handles, such as mine (which is great on the pocketbook!). Personally, Nanette is a very nice person to know. I highly recommend Nanette Stringer!
