About Nadine

Learn Nadine’s areas of practice.

I was a teenager when my parents divorced and have seen countless friends and relatives go through divorces of their own.  The negative impact on families can be minimal or extensive depending upon the level of conflict involved in the case.  My approach to the practice of family law is to talk first and litigate second.  It is almost always in your best interests to avoid a trial and litigation if possible.  The expense of litigation is astronomical.  

No client comes to see me becauses they are having a good day.  My job is to make your bad day a little better, a little less frightening.  

Let's determine the fastest, easiest way to resolve your issues so that you may gain closure and move forward.  

I do understand that reaching an agreement is not always possible, especially when it comes to protecting your children.  When settlement is not an option, I have years of experience litigating custody matters.  I have represented hundreds of children in high conflict custody cases, in Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Bernardino.

I have experience litigating 730 Custody Evaluations, Parenting Plan Assessments, Child Interviews, Solution Focused Evaluations, Guardianships, International Move Aways, Out of State Move Away cases, cases involving drug abuse by parents and children, serious mental health issues, gender identity issues for parents and children, SARB hearings, I.E.P. meetings, obtaining CPS records, child abuse allegations, and sexual abuse allegations.

Nadine is incredibly thorough. She knows my case better than I do. She knows the system, knows the right steps at the right times so that she will win your case with minimal charging and stress to her client.

Currently working with her
Nadine is very good! She’s so sweet and very busy! She takes time to discuss things with you and go through everything so you aren’t confused. If your case is anything like mine it’s lots of paperwork because your ex husband won’t stop taking you to court for every little thing. She is trying to help make that stop. Her office manager Candice is very helpful. She knows her stuff and very to the point. I love her for that! I feel confident Nadine going to advocate for everything she can for me.

Went the extra mile
I just wanted to take a minute to say how amazing Nadine was when we dealt with her. She was meant to be an Advocate for the child’s best interest, and she truly dug deep to really see and understand both parties while keeping in mind what was best for the child. She changed her court order when she saw that one party clearly did not have respect for the court. Because of that action- she recommended reunification counseling. Anyone who has been separated from a child knows that isolation from one parent can have a huge affect on a child and whether or not they want to see the other parent, even if the other parent has done nothing wrong. The counseling allows the child to reconnect with the other parent with no barriers or influence. I feel it’s key in a custody battle especially when most law enforcement jurisdictions don’t force visitation. We spent a year in court trying every possible way to see her even-though we already had 50/50 custody . She listened to our pain and struggle when no one had before. As the Wife of a husband who has tried dearly to be part of his daughters life for over a decade with very little success, and no obvious allies, she stepped in and quickly saw the situation for what it was, someone finally to see the injustices that we had been experiencing for years, she did what was in the child’s best interest, she didn’t take sides she just went on the evidence that was presented before her, and I thank God for that, she was an angel to us. She is the only one who we ever felt cared, and really wanted to repair the situation for the child sake, she didn’t favor the mother, she didn’t favor the father. She went with what they revealed to her in there many meetings and Conversations. She is truly a public servant who really cares about reunifying families whenever ever possible. I feel she went above and beyond the call of duty, and I will be eternally grateful.

The Best!
Nadine is one of the most caring people in and out of the courtroom. She addresses hard issues but with a gentle hand. She wants the best for families. You could not ask for better representation in a family matter. She helped me and my ex get through our divorce with a young child with no trauma or drama. I feel grateful to have had her at my side through it. If I could give her more stars I would. Place your trust and family in her and you will not be disappointed. Fairness, happiness and peace is what I found she gave to us and I’m thankful.

I am so lucky to just know her. God bless you.

Nadine an exceptional lawyer.
She was able to help me get full legal and physical custody of my children with child and spousal support. My priority was to protect my children from further harm and she was able to help me to accomplish just that. Maybe I didn't walk away with a ton of money but my children's safety was my priority and she respected and supported me in this process. Very compassionate, smart, yet aggressive enough to fight. Her rates are fair and she did not drag out my case.

Easy to Work With
I started the divorce process on my own but the paperwork proved to be daunting. I don't know law and didn't feel confident that I had everything done right. Nadine and her staff helped me through the process guiding me through the ups and downs of the journey. They were patient through the whole process instructing me every step of the way to a final ending and a new beginning! Very easy to work with. My ex-husband was also referred to her through a co-worker but I'm glad I called first!

The attorney I really needed!
Nadine is awesome. She could have done the thing that my ex's attorney did and just waste time on theories just to ratchet up the fees whilst getting nowhere and having to try something else on the customer's dollar. But she didn't. She was pragmatic and honest all the way through the process and helped me shut down the ridiculous claims coming from 'Team Psycho'. She sent out a number of communications to them to ensure they knew we weren't going to be messed with and they got the message. Nadine is awesome. Hire her.

Great service And experience
Most often when faced with matters of a family court nature, you can anticipate that some level of emotion will be part of that process. Nadine was accessible and provided sound options and guidance to navigate through the process as best as we could and achieve the best outcome possible. Her years of experience and understanding of the court system were demonstrated time and time again. She remained professional at all times and brought a sense of calm to even the most difficult hurdles. I would recommend anyone looking for a knowledgeable family law attorney to put your trust in Nadine to shepherd the process and see you through to the other side.

Ms. Jett is a very personable attorney who listened to my case and diligently worked towards reaching my desired outcome while putting my child's well being first. She took on my difficult custody case on short notice and did an exellent job. For that, I'm eternally grateful. I only wish I had found her sooner so she could have represented me in my divorce.

Dissolution with Stipulated Judgment
Me and my ex new what we wanted and were able to come to terms and agree to everything. Nadine was instrumental in us being able to move through the dissolution process in a smooth manner and avoid the expense of dueling attorneys/etc. Her office was responsive and the process straightforward. Having her group submit and file forms greatly reduced the stress of completing this process without hassles. Can't say enough good things about the overall experience and my ex and I are now able to move on with our lives. Thanks Nadine!

Divorce
Nadine did best for me in my case. She saved up to 300K for me. I don't need to pay alimony to my ex wife. She did impossible things for me in such short period of time. I definitely recommend Nadine. Thank you, Nadine.
