Jonathan Nightingale | Nightingale Legal
Jonathan W. Nightingale is a Bay Area native who grew up on the San Francisco peninsula. He began his legal career as an undergraduate at the UC Santa Barbara representing his fellow students who were getting unfairly punished for having fun in the dorms. He also interned for California Rural Legal Assistance, Inc. in Santa Barbara, where he litigated on behalf of indigent clients in the areas of housing, education, and health care. After college, Jonathan worked in Washington D.C. as Congressional Aide. With dreams of actually helping others, Jonathan decided to move back to California to attend law school at Santa Clara University.
During law school, Jonathan developed his family law skills while working for the San Francisco City Attorney’s Child & Family Services Team, which handles cases involving juvenile abuse and/or neglect. He also worked for the San Mateo County Superior Court’s Family Law Facilitator’s Office in Redwood City, where he provided assistance to self-represented litigants in family law matters. While working for San Mateo County, he led free divorce and landlord/tenant clinics for local residents in both English and Spanish. It was also during Jonathan’s time in law school that he began working for the Law Offices of Marilyn A. Young, an estate planning attorney with over 40 years of experience in San Francisco. Jonathan still shares an office with Marilyn and works as an associate attorney for her practice.
