Nefertiti M. France began her legal career in the U.S. Air Force in 1993. She received her Juris Doctor while in the U.S. Air Force in 2006 from Rutgers in New Jersey and retired from the Air Force as a Master Sergeant in 2010. She is admitted to practice in New Jersey (2006), Pennsylvania (2006) and Illinois (2015). She has represented clients in all areas of family law including divorce, child custody, parentage, child support, spousal support/maintenance (alimony), adoptions, orders of protection and guardianships. She is a certified mediator and encourages alternate dispute resolution whenever it can help her clients move forward toward resolution. She is also one of the Lake County court approved guardian ad litems and has been court appointed to represent children of divorcing parents. Nefertiti practiced family law in Illinois for many years as a successful solo practitioner before joining forces with Strategic Divorce in 2020.
Ms. France has extensive experience in handling highly sensitive and volatile cases. Her focus is to obtain the best result for her clients through amicable negotiations and/or mediation. Although it is her goal to prevent the costly process of litigation, she understands there are some cases that must be litigated. In those cases, Nefertiti is a fierce litigator for her clients.
