Natalie was very helpful in my divorce and custody case. She was consistent, reliable and timely-- I felt like I had a wonderful advocate at every stage.

It is rare for me to take the time to write a review. I generally do not feel strongly enough about something to sit down and publicly air my personal thoughts or opinions.
In the case of Natalie Stec, however I will make an exception. I will gladly tell the world how grateful I am she was and is my attorney and how I would recommend her services her to anyone who required an attorney of her outstanding calibre. .
Over three years ago when I began my divorce process, I was distraught and overwhelmed , with 3 children and working full time heading my own successful marketing agency . I hired an attorney recommended to me by a friend. I spent months paying this man to help me secure a parenting agreement so that I could get out of an abusive living situation. After thousands of dollars and no headway and no parenting agreement, I released him and secured a new attorney. This attorney was much the same, she was dismissive, incompetent , unprofessional, and ineffective. I sat in the back of a court room without her knowledge, watching her and my ex's attorney laugh and chat together. Months went by thousands of dollars and still no parenting agreement, It is a terrifying and helpless feeling knowing your future and your children's future is held in the hands of a "professional" who frankly does not care. I began once more interviewing attorneys.
Then someone I know told me about Natalie Stec. When I went to meet with her, she took the time and actually listened to me. She detailed a timeline and a plan of action. Her approach is caring and professional and to the point. I knew upon meeting her that Natalie was who I wanted on my side, that she would be the attorney to get the job done. This decision to secure Natalie's services was one of the best decisions I have made in my life. In just 5 weeks she had obtained a parenting agreement, something the previous 2 lawyers could or would not do in 18 months. During the entire divorce proceedings Natalie tenaciously fought for me as her client. She was caring, professional and aggressive on my behalf, and most of all she is a smart and strong woman. I never doubted in her abilities or that she would secure the best outcome for me. I am not the easiest client to work with and Natalie never showed me anything but patience and understanding and when I needed it most...laughter. Months later I was finally divorced...thanks to Natalie.
Natalie and her firm continue to be my legal resource . All of the people I have engaged with are professional and helpful and have earned my complete trust.
I would be a true honor to recommend Natalie Stec to anyone requiring the services of such an outstanding attorney.
