This experience gives Natalie a unique perspective when representing public utility clients on matters before the PSC.
Natalie’s experience also includes assisting clients in residential and commercial real estate and mineral matters. From conducting title searches, drafting title opinions, and identifying encumbrances such as easements and liens and providing curative recommendations to representing clients in real estate closings and facilitating foreclosure sales for lenders, Natalie brings a full-service approach to her real estate law practice.
Natalie previously served as an Assistant Public Defender in the Kanawha County Public Defender Office, representing clients in municipal, magistrate, family, and circuit court hearings on a wide variety of criminal law matters. As a legal intern for the West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence, she drafted a legislative bill creating the crime of unlawful restraint.
In addition to her legal career, Natalie is the founder and President of Give Comfort, Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that assists local cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment. This passion project was inspired by her personal experience receiving treatment for stage III melanoma and understanding the needs of a friend who passed from cancer.
