Getting a divorce was one of the worst experiences of my life, but Natalie really made it as pleasant as it could be. She was kind and honest with me every step of the way. She did a great job handling my divorce and I felt like we got a good outcome at mediation. She was always very prepared and I would recommend her to anyone looking for legal help with a divorce.
Hire Natalie and her team! She is absolutely wonderful and you will not regret it for a second. She is thoughtful and communicative. Natalie took over my case from another attorney. My former attorney did not do a very good job communicating with me or giving my case the needed attention it deserved. Natalie was the polar opposite. She made sure I stayed update and did an excellent job getting my case caught up to speed.
For example, when I first came to Natalie, I had not been paid my monthly support payment in months. I was struggling to make ends meet. Natalie immediately filed a motion and dragged my ex into court. She got prompt payment from him and I was finally back on a path toward stability. Natalie was a real shark and made sure I was protected from the moment I hired her.
My case went to trial, and it was the same story from the moment I hired her. We triumphed at trial and got a great ruling from the judge.
I could not have asked for a more responsive and dedicated attorney. Natalie and her staff were always there to answer questions and provide me guidance as to next steps. Trust me there are a lot of questions in a divorce and it is good to have an attorney who is always there to explain how things work. There were never any surprises because Natalie and her staff had already told me what I could expect at each stage. Natalie warned me that the moment after I walked out of her office I would have a ton of questions and she was absolutely right. Natalie was always available to advise me whether it was a minor question like whether I could take the kids on a day trip without notifying my ex or whether it was a bigger question like could I enroll my kids in summer camp and have my ex pay his share.
Natalie was very prepared for court and for mediation. Her strong preparation allowed us to outwit the other side and to get a better settlement than I would have had I hired a less thorough attorney. You will absolutely not regret hiring her. She was wonderful and I could not thank her enough for everything she did for me and my children.
I heard great things about Natalie and decided to meet with her a couple months back for a consultation. I thought I was meeting with Natalie but instead, I met with Natalie AND her son, a freshly graduated law student who was going to an associate attorney after he passed the bar. My situation was sensitive (at least to me) and I thought I would be treated with understanding and respect. I understand that attorneys have to treat their cases like cases but this was my life and the way she and her son were "consulting," felt like judgement and entitlement. First off, her son wasn't even an attorney yet and he was sitting in on my consultation. Second, she made it clear that she was currently busy and that her son will be handling much of the case. Third, they were both know-it-all's. EVERYTHING was a fact, a law, a rule- there was no humanity behind it. If you want an attorney who is "by the book" then you should hire her but if you want something who fights for YOU then I wouldn't put a foot in the door. Also, don't hire her if you think you're going to get her. You will likely have her son do a lot of the work and no offense, but I'm not comfortable enough to have a freshly graduated law student work on my case.
Natalie and Michael (her son and new associate) were wonderful. They went above and beyond not just to help me get the parenting plan I wanted, but to help guide me on moving forward with my life. They created the least amount of animosity with my ex-wife, while maximizing the my parenting time with my kids. I was thoroughly impressed with the way they balanced my desire to continue a good co-parenting relationship with my ex, while making sure that I got the time I felt was in the best interests of my kids. I would highly recommend them.

When my ex wife filed for divorce I was truly distraught and upset. There was simply no way for me to defend myself at that time in my life. Natalie really helped me move forward and achieve a good result. She was more than just a lawyer for me, she was an adviser who helped me deal with both the emotional components and the legal components of my divorce and my case. She was a fabulous attorney who was really there for me. I highly recommend her.

Natalie is knowledgeable, honest, and has a helpful and efficient staff. I needed a bulldog to handle my divorce because of an uncooperative x-husband, and his horribly dishonest and unresponsive attorney. Natalie initially recommended arbitration, but my x and his attorney were uncooperative. We were forced to go to court. While in court I was very impressed with her preparation and expertise. When opposing counsel falsified expenses she quickly brought this to the courts attention.

Natalie and her team represented me on a paternity action. Natalie was always honest with me that it was going to be a long haul until I was able to get custody of my child. Natalie represented me fairly and aggressively. She was able to get me custody all while not spending money I could not afford. She is an excellent attorney and I would highly recommend her.

I found Natalie did a wonderful job representing my interests. When I met Natalie I felt like my world had fallen apart. Everything in my life felt as if it was never going to be okay again. I had some very complex parenting and maintenance issues and Natalie help me not only personally get back to a stable and solid place in life but she got me a good resolution to my divorce. Natalie listens and is understanding all while aggressively representing my interests when I personally was not strong enough to do so myself.

Natalie did everything NOT to protect my children from an abusive father... She caved in court and with the ex's Attorney. This has almost cost one of them their lives. Natalie talks a very strong plan, once you trust her and give her your trust and lots of money, she will do what she wants when she wants. As with so many other negative feedback responders, I cannot stress enough to stay away from Natalie! I have had huge legal expenses after Natalie's very expensive divorce to TRY and correct what she did. After almost 5 years, my children have to deal with their fathers abuse due to Natalie. She will earn your trust until you are too far in, then let you down and take lots of money in the process. We lost our home and everything we own, a horrible parenting plan to boot! Run, don't walk! From the first time I spoke with Natalie, 10 years ago, I did not listen to the Negative feedback. I cannot begin to tell you how I regret that everyday!
