I truly believe that families are better served through a peaceful resolution outside of the courts!

About Natalya Evans, Attorney
My Personal Background…
I’m not just a family law and estate planning attorney, I’m also someone who has actually been through a custody battle in court and have young children whose future I have to protect. I can honestly say – I know what you’re going through!
Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, I moved to the United States with my family when I was 11 years old. I speak fluent Russian and English and have worked hard to be able to do what I love and help other families resolve their family conflicts in the best way possible.
I earned my Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Stetson University in Deland, Fl. I then attended Stetson University in Gulfport, FL where I earned my law degree along with a Master’s in Business Administration, MBA. When I was halfway through law school I became pregnant with twins and raised them as a single mom for 9 years.
My children’s dad had minimal involvement with them from the beginning and only for a brief period of time. After going through the adversarial court process, which was the only option I was aware of at that time, he ultimately chose not to be involved in their lives. I firmly believe that if we had the support that a collaborative team provides, he might have made a different decision and our children would not have missed out on having a father for so many years.
Luckily, I met and married a wonderful man who took in and raised my twins as his own and we added two more beautiful tots to the bunch. Although our marriage ended up not working out, we worked out an amicable separation and are blessed to have made a very smooth transition for our children and to have a wonderful co-parenting relationship with each other. I have experienced, professionally and personally, the difference in the outcomes for families fighting in court versus ones where families are empowered to make their own decisions for their family. It is my mission to make the process as easy for your family as possible.
I also understand firsthand the concerns that most adults have about what is going to happen to them and their assets in case of incapacity and to their family should something unthinkable happen to them. I understand the importance of proper planning and use not only my legal knowledge and experience to assist clients but my personal understanding and compassion in helping them protect their family’s future.
I became a member of the Florida Bar in July 2009 and worked for a Civil Litigation Law Firm until October 2010, when I decided to start my own practice and focus primarily on helping families address their legal needs.
Through my own experience and the many family cases I’ve litigated over the years, I came to realize that families DO NOT belong in Court. I knew there had to be a better way for families to resolve
Whether a custody battle or a battle over your loved one’s assets, litigation adds fuel to the fire of an already emotionally strained situation. It is my passion to educate families to help them avoid conflict and if
