Adele graduated from Monterey College of Law with a Juris Doctor while raising two children with her husband, architect Jeff Schneidereit.

Ms. Schneidereit has founded Adele Schneidereit Law Offices and practices there as the Principal Attorney.

Before she became a lawyer, Adele worked in Silicon Valley as a software consultant at CGI Technologies and Solutions Inc. Later Adele worked as part of a small team which designed the Online Medical Record System which is the charting system for inpatients used by the vast array of Kaiser Permanente hospitals and physicians.

Adele founded Inspire The World Foundation, which promotes awareness about Cerebral Palsy and has functioned under the auspices of the United Cerebral Palsy, SLO. As part of raising awareness, Adele Schneidereit and Inspire the World Foundation produced Hemispheres - the movie, a film that shows how far a person who has Cerebral Palsy can go (featured below). As the Executive Producer of Hemispheres, Adele was lucky to work with actors Chris and Marianne Leone Cooper (who express their experience with their son, Jesse), comedian Josh Blue, Micky and Elizabeth Dolenz, Mindy Lipson Aisen MD (former CEO of Cerebral Palsy Medical Research Foundation), actress Cheryl Hines, and “Facts of Life” Actress Geri Jewell. Hemispheres was submitted to the Sun Dance Film Festival. The next iteration of the movie went on hold while director, Simo Nylander of Aspect Studios,was living abroad. While Simo was abroad, Adele earned her law degree.

Adele and her husband are private pilots.

Mission accomplished
I would like to share my experience with working with Adele Schneidereit and her Paralegal’s Jenn and Mary. When It became necessary that I file for bankruptcy I was disappointed and overwhelmed with questions. After calling multiple bankruptcy lawyers I still hadn’t found one that gave me the confidence that was necessary for me to move forward. That is until I called Adele. Right from the start of the conversation I felt her warmth and compassion to my circumstances. Adele’s fees were also considerably lower than what the other Attorneys I spoke with quoted me. Adele eased my fears and gave me confidence as to how We should move forward. She was not intimidating at all, but very approachable. Adele,Jenn and Mary were always available whenever I reached out whether it be a phone call, or email, or a text . That is HUGE !!! I recommend Adele and her team highly. You don’t have to be afraid of failure! She is highly capable of winning this fight for you. Let’s face it life is a gamble. But My instincts proved me right on this one. Thank you so much Adele,Jenn and Mary!!!

I had some issues/questions regarding spousal benefits through the Social Security Administration. I consulted with Adele. She was responsive, professional, punctual, caring, and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend using her for your legal matters.
