Natalie is a skilled trial lawyer who represents plaintiffs and defendants in complex intellectual property disputes. She has extensive experience litigating patent, trade secret, and other IP cases in federal district courts across the country and handling adversarial proceedings before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Natalie’s courtroom success is enhanced by both her ability to connect with witnesses, judges, and juries, and the ease with which she simplifies complex technologies into clear, compelling narratives. As a registered patent attorney with an engineering background, Natalie offers comprehensive IP counsel beyond litigation, including pre-suit investigations, licensing arrangements, and IP agreements.

Natalie has been recognized by Chambers USA and Thomson Reuters for her excellence in intellectual property litigation. Before joining Yetter Coleman, she was a partner at Baker Botts, where she co-led its Energy Tech sector. Following law school, Natalie clerked for Chief Judge Leonard E. Davis of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas.

Natalie is also active in professional and community organizations. She is the immediate past president of the Hispanic Bar Association of Houston, a member of the Texas Minority Counsel Program’s Steering Committee, a Trustee for the Foundation for Advancement of Diversity in IP Law, and a leader within ChIPs—a global community of women in tech, law, and policy. Natalie is a frequent speaker at legal seminars and for many years, taught “Procedure of Patent Litigation” at the University of Houston Law Center.

Natalie and her husband, Chris, have two children and are passionate about improving educational opportunities and outcomes for underserved communities.
