Natasha has been incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. She has provided me with legal services related to employment and non-profit law, from contract review to filing for a foundation/501(c)3 status. She is amiable and responds very quickly.

Natasha demonstrates the highest degree of integrity, professionalism, and care with her counsel. Her knowledge, connectivity, and solution-focused approach to problem-solving lead me to confidently recommend her work to others.

For all the upsets which brought me to this point, I am grateful for Natasha’s guidance, pace, and kindness. She is calm in the storm yet a force to be reckoned with!

I trust Natasha to offer solutions that take into consideration our unique school culture. Natasha has taken the time to get to know our school - its rich history, our steadfast values, and our strategic goals for the future. Understanding who we are is imperative to crafting guidance, sharing resources, and achieving legal compliance without compromising culture.
