Proud to call Kansas City home, Natalie is a graduate of the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Law. She has worked in the field of health care litigation since 2013 and has experience assisting in cases involving very complex medical issues. Natalie also brings a unique perspective of health care to her job. Through her sister, an OB/GYN, Natalie has come to appreciate the many difficult challenges regularly faced by providers who are committed to prioritizing patient care. This appreciation is evident in her work ethic. Natalie’s approach to each case can be summarized in one sentence: applied knowledge is power. Her meticulous attention to detail and strong analytical skills facilitate optimal outcomes for our clients and make her a valuable asset to the SAKG team.

“If you take pride in your work, results are maximized. The members of this team take an enormous amount of pride in their work, and I am grateful every day to work alongside people who not only want to achieve the best results for our clients, but who cultivate an environment that fosters the skills necessary to litigate effectively and successfully. I am part of a truly amazing team.”

Outside the firm, Natalie serves as an advisor to the UMKC chapter of her undergraduate sorority, Chi Omega. She enjoys engaging in a variety of exercises to stay active, including yoga, running, and strength training. She also loves to travel and takes any chance she can to visit her sister, who currently lives and practices in Memphis, Tennessee.

Results

  • Defense verdict in a case involving birth injury and fetal laceration during a c-section delivery. Plaintiff alleged permanent and progressive injury and disfigurement following severe laceration to the child’s eyelid, canalicular system, and conjunctiva through negligent use of a scalpel while making entry into the uterus. Alleged damages exceeded $925,000.  Obtained summary judgment of the mother’s emotional distress claim prior to trial.
  • Obtained summary judgment in a Kansas state court medical negligence case where damages were alleged to be in excess of $1.5 million.
  • Routinely facilitates optimal resolutions representing physicians in Missouri and Kansas state medical Board investigations concerning a wide range of patient care issues.

The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisements. Past results afford no guarantee of future results. Every case is different and must be judged on its own merits.
