Growing up, Natalia wanted to be a cultural anthropologist. Her practical side eventually led her to the law. Her investigative nature gives her a drive and love for the profession that sets her apart. Natalia focuses her practice on defending municipalities, governments, and their respective officials and employees. She handles a variety of claims including false arrest and imprisonment, use of force, Section 1983 claims, negligence, flooding, drowning, wrongful death, inverse condemnation, railroad accidents, bicycle accidents, premises liability and environmental torts. Natalia regularly obtains dismissals based on nuanced defenses unique to the public sector, such as the immunity doctrine. As an advocate for her clients, she strives to be thorough, proactive and responsive.

Natalia was born in Poland and grew up in the Washington, D.C. area. She graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Cultural Anthropology and a minor in Linguistics. Natalia’s first introduction into the legal field was working as a civil litigation paralegal. She was inspired to attend law school after helping a pro bono client recover funds that were wrongfully withheld by a landlord. Natalia attended Campbell University School of Law on a merit scholarship and received the North Carolina State Bar Pro Bono Student Award in 2007 for her work as President of Project for Older Prisoners, a group dedicated to decreasing the financial burden on the state of the aging prison population. Prior to joining Teague Campbell, she clerked for the Honorable Ann Marie Calabria at the North Carolina Court of Appeals.

Natalia represents clients in North Carolina’s Superior Courts, the United States District Courts for the Eastern, Middle and Western Districts of North Carolina and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and she has been recognized by North Carolina Super Lawyers as a “rising star” in her practice. Natalia and her husband live in Raleigh with their two daughters. As a family, they enjoy being outdoors, exploring the North Carolina mountains and are actively involved with St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. In her free time, Natalia enjoys running, watching movies with her husband and is a fan of live stand-up comedy.
