She is regularly recognized by Washingtonian and Northern Virginia magazines as a leading Financial Adviser and Trusts & Estates Lawyer, and has been selected as one of the best Trusts & Estates Lawyers in America by The Best Lawyers in America.
Natanya approaches every personal planning engagement with empathy, honesty and pragmatism. She prepares legal documents that her clients understand, and strives to ensure that her clients’ assets will pass to their descendants, charities or other beneficiaries in the secure, private and tax-efficient manner they intend. Natanya is experienced in all aspects of estate planning and estate administration, ranging from modest matters to planning for corporate executives, business owners, public figures and those with inherited wealth.
