    Attorney Profile

    Natasha was born and raised in Kailua, O‘ahu. After graduating from Kamehameha Schools in 2004, she received her Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Hawaii Pacific University in 2008 and her juris doctor from the University of Hawai‘i William S. Richardson School of Law in 2011 with a Native Hawaiian law certificate.

    Prior to joining the firm, Natasha worked at Meheula & Devens LLP in 2012 and was a law clerk to the Honorable Lisa M. Ginoza, Intermediate Court of Appeals, State of Hawaii (2011 to 2012).

    While at the University of Hawai‘i, Natasha was an alaka‘i (leader) for the ‘Ahahui o Hawaii Native Hawaiian Law Student Organization and worked extensively with the staff of the Ka Huli Ao Center for Excellence in Native Hawaiian Law as a research assistant and civil procedure tutor. Natasha was also a member of the University of Hawai‘i Law Review. In Fall 2010, the Asian-Pacific Law & Policy Journal published her comment, “One Way Track to Desecration: Implications of the Honolulu Rail’s Failure to Comply with Protections Mandated for Native Hawaiian Burials.”

    In April 2013, Natasha co-authored “Ho‘i Hou I Ka Iwikuamo‘o: A Legal Primer for the Protection of Iwi Kupuna in Hawaii Nei,” which is a community-oriented introduction to state and federal laws regarding Native Hawaiian burials. This is one of a series of similar primers on laws impacting the Kānaka Maoli community that was printed with funding from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs. Natasha’s scholarly work also includes the “Iwi Kūpuna: Native Hawaiian Burial Rights” chapter of the recently released Native Hawaiian Law: A Treatise, the highly anticipated follow-up to the 1991 Native Hawaiian Rights Handbook. This treatise features twenty-one chapters that discuss and  analyze the critical events, cases, statutes, regulations, and actions that form and give substance to a body of law affecting Kānaka Maoli, the Native Hawaiian people. 

    Natasha’s practice includes Native Hawaiian rights. She regularly speaks on the subject of legal protections for iwi kūpuna at workshops held for members of the Hawai‘i State Bar, the National Park Service and the larger community.
