About me


I have been an attorney for over 35 years and have been serving the Seattle metropolitan area for over 20 years. I graduated from Simmons College in Maryland with a B.A in history and later obtained my Juris Doctor from the University Of Maryland School of Law.

My legal career began with the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare as a lawyer representing the federal government in Black Lung suits. After a short time, I transitioned into representing the Welfare program in the Federal Court of Appeals. In my most cited case, Soberal-Perez v. Schweiker, I represented the Social Security Administration in a lawsuit over disability benefit notices being in languages other than English.

After I met my husband, we moved to Washington with our six children. I obtained a position with the Washington State Court of Appeals Division I as a staff attorney doing research and general support for the Court. I soon left the court in 1993 and pursued a career in the private sector with Culp, Guterson, and Grader and with Foster Pepper where I was of counsel. At Foster Pepper, I represented Eva Bandy in the nationally renowned case Bandy v. Bandy, dealing with wiretapping. After I left Foster Pepper in 1994, I decided to start my own firm, The Law Offices of Natalie de Maar.

My personal experience with divorce and raising my own children and step children has had a profound effect on my practice. I am a compassionate and skilled lawyer who is sensitive to my clients’ needs and tough in the courtroom. I work tirelessly to help my clients achieve a fair result, and help them through the difficult and emotional process of resolving disputes.

I look forward to working with you for your family law needs.
