Before founding Gomez Edwards Law Group, LLP with her law partner and friend, Natalie practiced criminal defense and family law at another firm located in Santa Clara. Natalie’s family law experience began in 2003, prior to graduation from undergraduate school and law school when she worked as a legal assistant and law clerk for the family law division at Ropers, Majeski, Kohn & Bentley in San Jose, CA up until admission into law school. After graduating law school, Natalie law clerked at Greenstein & McDonald in San Francisco, CA and then worked as a family law and criminal defense associate in Santa Clara, CA up until 2015. This combination of experience has allowed Natalie to supplement her skills by appearing at highly contested law and motion hearings/trials, attending depositions, attending mediations, and guiding parties to reach settlement agreements.
Natalie grew up in East San Jose, CA and loved going to Raging Waters as a kid. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, spending time with family, finding great restaurants for a foodie experience, and last but not least, cuddling her American Cocker Spaniel puppy, Remy (the gentle and nosy office guard pup).
