About Stefani

Learn Stefani’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Marriage and prenuptials
    65% of my practice is now prenuptial agreements. I offer a flat-fee package or hourly. A prenuptial agreement is the most important contract of your life and every engaged person should discuss if they need a prenup with a qualified attorney.

    34 years, 200 cases

  2. Divorce and separation
    I have worked with over 2,000 divorcing people to date. I strive to be fair in my billing, move the case along with low conflict, and to use the most innovative techniques to make the process as emotionally easy as possible and get the divorce over.

    34 years, 2,000 cases

  3. Mediation
    I mediate divorce conflicts, parenting conflicts, and financial settlements. I have a holistic style that works well to getting couples to reach agreements on hard issues. I work with couples directly or with lawyers.

    34 years, 60 cases


I'm Stefani Quane, a prenuptial agreement attorney, holistic divorce attorney, and mediator.   I've been practicing for 32 years with over 2,200 clients in my career.  I'm serious about helping my clients negotiate a fair prenuptial agreement, stand up for a good prenup settlement, and writing a prenup contact that you'll feel good about being the financial pillar of your marriage.  My work now is mostly devoted to crafting the best prenups I can for couples.  

I've had years of sucess working with divorcing clients.  I've developed signature, streamlined methods to make the divorce process go smoothly for my clients, requiring the least amount of court intervention.  

My office is located in the historic, nautical Doc Freeman Building in the heart of Fremont with gorgeous views of Lake Union and boats.

I wholeheartedly recommend Stefani.
She is savvy and explains concepts in an easy-to-understand way. She humorously, and with great tact, pointed out information that was hard for me to hear. She also simplified the process for me. I felt she honestly cared about me and my situation. She listens very well, and her writing was concise and persuasive. I believe she’s an accurate and trustworthy lawyer. I’ve referred her at least 6 times in recent years to my friends and colleagues in legal need. I consider her a 5-star attorney, for sure.

A Beacon of Light out of the Darkness in a Storm
Stefani helped me see a big picture, realistic, and encouraging pathway to achieving success with regard to modifying a custody and parenting plan with an uncooperative parent. She gave me the tools to get started and take action, and I look forward to working with her.

Great help with Prenuptial agreement
I hired Stefani to help my fiancee and I work on a Prenuptial agreement. We had a very tight deadline for completing the agreement and Stefani provided timely and insightful feedback, drafting a very good collaborative document in the process which covered the goals of both me and my fiancee.
