Natalie enjoys helping people in difficult circumstances. Growing up, she learned the importance of family relationships. As the middle of five children she learned when to be diplomatic, and when to take a stand in a conflict. Natalie earned her bachelor’s degree in English in 2006. After graduation she worked as a file clerk in a civil litigation firm and realized that she had the talent and ability to help people in need and applied to law school. Natalie earned her law degree from Brigham Young University Law School in 2010. Natalie met and married her husband during her first year of law school and had their first child shortly before graduation.
I believe that family relationships are the most important relationships in our lives. When families are in distress all members suffer. Ending a relationship with your child’s parent is painful and life altering, but it does not have to devolve into an all-out war with casualties. After final orders are in, the parties still have one thing in common – their children. I strive to help families reach decisions that they are comfortable with. However, I also know that it is necessary to defend your rights and the rights of your children through vigorous advocacy. Neither I nor my clients are doormats. I strive to help clients through this painful time so they can begin rebuilding their lives.
