Using James' suggestions:

nevertheless = sin embargo, pese a todo, aún así, en cualquier caso

Nonetheless = No obstante (more formal, more common in writing), a pesar de todo

A pesar de (todo) eso.
Eso no obstante.
As far as I know, the (already suggested) "sin embargo" is the most common expression.

Jose, nevertheless means however, or but.

Nonetheless can sometimes mean the same thing, or it can mean "despite anything to the contrary," usually following a concession (when you admit something). It is usually only used in writing or formal speech.

I don't know exactly how to explain it, but "nevertheless" and "nonetheless" are similar to "however". it's like saying, "despite X...y will happen..." These words signify ignoring the previous subject as not having any affect on the subject to be talked about. for example: "the thief was be chased by police and there was no escape. nevertheless, he kept on running till he was caught."

...maybe someone else can explain it better lol.

Sin embargo is the meaning for nevertheless. You can also use no obstante, but if you are a Spanish speaker, how can you not understand it'
