Tamatha R. Schreinert

schreinert-2016_corrected_smallGuiding clients and their families through difficult times has been the focus of my career. I litigate divorce, custody, adoption, and guardianship cases. I am a certified mediator, with over 100 hours of mediation training. I am a member of the Nevada Collaborative Divorce Professionals group.
Divorce and custody disputes can be the most stressful time in a person’s life. As your attorney, I will help you understand your rights, the legal process, and possible outcomes. With knowledge comes control, and hopefully, with control comes calm. Decreasing the stress of divorce can improve the outcomes for my clients and minimize the impact of divorce on the children.
As a mediator I try to assist families in resolving conflicts in a way tailored for each family. I mediate divorce and custody cases. Through mediation, parties may hear each other’s interests and goals to reach resolution. I am also a member of the mediation panel for the Family Court in Washoe County for child protection cases.
A collaborative divorce is a new way for a divorcing couple to work as a team with trained professionals to resolve disputes respectfully, without going to court. This is a respectful, problem-solving approach, often with the assistance of trained financial experts, child specialists, and divorce coaches, which replaces the adversarial process of conventional divorce.
I was born and raised in Reno, Nevada, graduating from McQueen High School in 1988. I have a degree in Psychology from Whitman College and am a graduate of Harvard Law School. Upon graduation from law school in 1998, I became an attorney for hundreds of children in the Los Angeles foster care system, appearing in court on a daily basis.
In 2006, I moved my family back home to Reno. I consulted with the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges, writing analysis and Bench Books for judges on the child protection system.
In 2010, I was appointed a Court Master for the Second Judicial District Court in Washoe County, serving as a judicial officer in custody, divorce, child support, dependency, and domestic violence cases. In late 2012, I founded Schreinert Law, a family law mediation practice. In July, 2013, I joined Silverman Kattelman Springgate, Chtd., merging my mediation practice with our thriving litigation practice.

Civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof.
Swimming for his life, a man does not see much of the country through which the river winds.
A long line of cases shows that it is not merely of some importance, but is of fundamental importance that justice should not only be done, but should manifestly and undoubtedly be seen to be done.
