As a first-year associate at MG+M, Natasha took defense lead with plaintiffs, fact witness, and expert depositions in a living mesothelioma lawsuit pending in the Civil District Court for the Parish of Orleans, State of Louisiana (named by the American Tort Reform Foundation as a “judicial hellhole”) for two gasket and packing suppliers, one of which was a target defendant. Natasha secured a dismissal via summary judgment for one client, and the other was dismissed the day before trial. The trial proceeded against the sole remaining defendant, resulting in a seven-digit verdict for plaintiffs.
