My experience in court with Natasha made a stressful situation a learning situation. Natasha was direct and professional with all matters pertaining to my divorce. She stuck to the facts and was able to reduce the duration of court time usually required in these matters. I highly recommend Natasha.

This lawyer only represented me for one month (I decided to go back to my first attorney who had represented me for most of 2014). I had several concerns in the one month she represented me. She offers a "free" consultation but she didn't tell me that when I came in for my consultation meeting that at some point, she would start charging me for a meeting at her hourly rate of $425. She says that her version of events are different than mine in that we continued to meet after she charged my credit card for the retainer (5K). This "meeting" that occurred after the consultation meeting was SO NOT an hour...MAYBE 15 minutes MAX. (I had to get back to work and certainly would not have been able to have a consultation meeting followed by another meeting). One thing I know is that I never changed seats from the time I went in until I left the "free" consultation meeting. Anyone who meets a lawyer for the first time and has arrived to a new law office for a scheduled free consultation would never leave the office that day thinking a charge of 425 would be on the invoice. It should have been her responsibility to delineate what constituted HER free consultation service and HER charged service. I also took issue with her level of professionalism. She did not get back to emails in a timely fashion. She charges - at a minimum - $42.50 to review an email and a minimum of 42.50 to respond to that reviewed email (So, it was very clear to me that there was a minimum charge of 85 as a total for every email that is reviewed and responded to). During the one pre-conference meeting we went to, she was more interested in talking to my husband's attorney and other court staff than me. It didn't seem like she had time to really hear me out even though I'm the only one paying her for the hour. She also seems to double-charge. For example, she charged me for a call following our court appearance, but she was in her car DRIVING when she called me. She was already charging for her drive in to court and for her drive after court so to see a separate charge for the call (when it coincided with the drive she was charging for) is not right. I could go on and on but what became clear to me is that she did not seem to care about making my life go into financial disaster. She simply did not care. I think she is used to representing incredibly wealthy people where an invoice for several thousand dollars in one month is pocket change. She does not take concerns well. I admit that I had several but when you are charged 425 an hour, I think the client has a right to work through those concerns. Had I kept this attorney, she would have left me in financial disaster with the kind of charges that showed up on my invoice in month 1.

Natasha navigated the complexities of my case with ease. Her detailed knowledge of matrimonial law was impressive- but even more so was her ability to apply it. Combined with business savvy, exceptional courtroom presence and the compassion to help make life changing decisions makes Natasha the only choice for me.
