I was referred to Ms. Gentry with the above titled recommendation from someone I trusted - and I was not let down and found it to be so true. She handled my divorce - which involved custody, complex debt issues and contention with my former spouse. She orchestrated a fair settlement without a trail that resulted in an equitable division of finances and joint custody, equal parenting time for me as a father.
First, Natalia was right on every legal issue from beginning to end, whether it was her opinion on how a motion would go, or whether a particular issue would have a consequence legally. Second, Natalia is clearly respected by judges, referees and opposing counsel alike. Her Detroit location makes her an excellent choice for Wayne County. Third, Natalia brought to the table a network of experts to assist with tax, health insurance, appraisal and accounting aspects of bringing my situation to a successful conclusion.
Natalia's research and writing skills are top-notch but I relied mostly on her counseling style as I had a lot of anxiety and worry about things - all of which in the end now seem unfounded. Natalia kept me assured along the way while steering things into the end zone.
Natalia is a very fair in terms of billing and very generous in giving of herself. I know I spoke to her on a couple weekends when things were rough. Her inter-personal skills in the couple courtroom appearances we had, the long mediation session and in many exchanges with my former spouse's lawyer were masterful and effective.
I am proud to know her as she has a growing LGBTQ practice and she brings a social justice perspective to everything she does.
Now that my legal concerns are behind me, I am free to focus my energy on being a good dad thanks to Natalia.

Natalia Kujan Gentry is truly a unique lawyer. Throughout my Family Law situation she was more than just professional and knowledgeable. She was supportive and nonjudgemental. Which for me was exteremly Important as I have some self confidence Issues due to a disability. She was always very patient with me and always there to answer my questions and help with solutions. Natalia's legal expertise and compassion helped me find the inner strength I needed to radically accept a less than idea situation and have faith in her and the legal system that things would work out for the best; which they did. I am grateful to have worked with Natalia and would recommend her to anyone needing legal consultation.

Natalia was a great lawyer for me. She exuded confidence both in and outside of the court room. Whenever I had questions or was uncertain, Natalia responded in a very timely manner and gave me confidence in my case. She was able to work professionally with opposing counsel, and kept her professional demeanor even when the opposing counsel did not.
Natalia helped close up my custody battle that had been going on for years, helping me to retain 50/50 parenting time. The home life for my children is much more stable now, and I thank her for that.
Natalia also negotiated child support and child care costs very effectively, helping me to keep my children in the schools which I had enrolled them to promote education at their young ages.
I would recommend Natalia to anybody going through a divorce or child custody/ support case.
