Natalie’s passion for criminal defence came at a very early stage, when working in a busy Edinburgh Defence practice as an office junior. Her focus towards criminal defence since then has never faltered. She started her legal career with Victoria Good and Company based in Edinburgh and when qualified as a solicitor, moved to Robert More and Company and then Bannerman Burke Defence Lawyers. She has specialised only in criminal defence. Throughout those years, Natalie has dealt with and gained a vast experience in every type of criminal case prosecuted at the Justice of the Peace Court, Sheriff Court and High Court. She is dedicated to ensuring the best result for her clients and has built a reputation for regularly achieving those results.
Natalie is local to the Highlands and Islands and having moved home, soon formed Patterson and Paterson Defence Lawyers. Since moving back, she defends clients within the Highlands and Islands on a daily basis and has built a loyal following.
