Natalie is dedicated to helping clients and their loved ones plan for, and deal with, disabilities, incapacity, illness and death. From the beginning of her law career, she has been drawn to the areas of Wills, Estates, and Trusts, as it allows her to serve her clients and their families on a personal level and develop lasting relationships.
Putting our firm’s client-centred approach into practice, Natalie works closely with our clients to implement estate plans that address each client’s unique goals in providing for young children, elderly loved ones, persons with disabilities and charitable causes. The client’s estate plan also considers specialized issues such as tax planning and business succession.
Natalie has always called the Ottawa area home, growing up in a small village just outside of the City. She obtained an Bachelor of Arts (Honours) degree in Psychology from Carleton University. Her studies continued at the University of Ottawa where she completed her law degree. She articled at a mid-size firm in Ottawa.
Her law career has been somewhat atypical. Following her call to the Ontario bar in 2003, she began practicing in the areas of Wills, Estates, and Trusts with Donna Neff. Following the birth of her first child in 2006, she continued to be an integral part of the firm, always fully immersed in the areas of Wills, Estates, and Trusts, while juggling the joys of parenthood. In September 2016, she was thrilled to return to the practice of law.
