Natasha is a litigator in Gunster’s Tampa office, where her practice focuses on probate, trust, and guardianship litigation, as well as fiduciary risk management.  She represents individual and corporate fiduciaries and beneficiaries involved in complex matters, including breach of fiduciary duty claims, tortious interference claims, removal litigation, accounting litigation, and will and trust modification and reformation.

Natasha also has significant experience litigating a broad spectrum of issues faced by businesses and employers, including non-compete litigation, trade secret litigation, discrimination matters, partnership disputes, contractual claims, fraud claims, and other disputes. An experienced trial attorney, Natasha has served as second chair at multiple trials arising out of business and employment disputes. She has worked on many complex, high-stakes, and high-profile litigation matters in and outside of Florida, including representing clients in 7- and 8-figure restrictive covenant disputes, and the successful defense of a collective action alleging discrimination.

Complementing her trial and dispute resolution practice, Natasha has appellate experience, including securing a favorable opinion in a pro bono case on behalf of the Guardian ad Litem Program in a child custody battle and conducting an oral argument on behalf of homeowners in an appeal of a code enforcement matter with countywide implications.  Natasha recognizes that understanding the appellate process is critical to ensure a client’s rights are preserved at the trial level.

In addition to her litigation experience, Natasha has handled a wide variety of transactional matters for clients, including drafting company policies and employment and service agreements. This experience helps her provide additional value when helping clients make prophylactic and business-savvy decisions before, during, and after litigation.

Natasha is very involved in the community, serving as a member of the Hillsborough County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division Board of Directors, as well as a board member and the Pro Bono Coordinator for the William Reece Smith, Jr. Litigation Inn of Court.  She regularly performs a hundred hours or more of pro bono work each year. To this end, Natasha serves as the Director of Project H.E.L.P (Homeless Experience Legal Protection), providing legal services to homeless and indigent individuals in the community, and the Executive Director of the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee.
