Attorneys Amy Nett and Kevin Nett met while attending law school at California Western School of Law, a renowned non-profit law school in San Diego, California with curriculum emphasizing the development of legal problem-solving, communication, writing, and critical thinking skills. While attending law school, each sought education parallel to their respective legal interests with Amy Nett studying Estate Law while teaching Legal Writing Skills (as a student) and Kevin Nett studying Business and Intellectual Property Law while externing at the Federal Communications Commission in Washington DC in the International Bureau for Satellite and Radio Communications Commission and Titan Wireless, a now defunct defense contractor previously located in La Jolla, California. Post Graduation and passing of the State Bar, both were slated to practice law in Washington DC with Amy Nett considering acceptance of a tax law editor attorney position and Kevin Nett considering acceptance of an offer to resume work at the Federal Communications Commission. The attacks on September 11 derailed these considerations as the country sought to defend itself against future attacks and budgets for these positions were frozen.
Returning to San Diego, Amy Nett thereafter took an associate position in her field of Estate Planning & Probate at a small boutique firm in Temecula, California while Kevin Nett took an In-House General Counsel position with a Federal Bankruptcy Liquidation Advertising firm headquartered in San Diego. While working at this small boutique firm, Amy Nett discovered that the full practice field to which she was interested was not represented. After determining that their individual fields actually complemented each other's in surprising, and what turned out to be inseparable ways, Amy Nett and Kevin Nett decided to leave the comfort of their positions and form their own law practice, The Law Offices of Nett & Nett, PC.
Upon forming the firm, Amy Nett and Kevin Nett found themselves eager to cultivate their law practice with a singular ambition: epitomize elite legal proficiency and dedicate it to the service of their clients. After nearly two decades practicing law and servicing the needs of over 2,000 corporate and individual clients out of their Temecula, California office, The Law Offices of Nett & Nett have and continue to service clients from all over the United States and abroad. Together, and with a handpicked staff of professionals, they remain completely devoted to their original ambition and respective fields. In essence, they love the practice of law and are proud of the service of their profession.
