Ms. Natalie S. Woodward

Warshauer Woodward Atkins

Natalie is a partner at Warshauer Woodward Atkins. She has secured more than 100 million dollars in verdicts for her clients, including a verdict in 2022 for more than 77 million dollars, which remains the largest of its kind in Georgia history. 

She is a native of Powder Springs, Georgia, and attended McEachern High School before earning undergraduate degrees in Journalism and Political Science from the University of Georgia. She then went on to attend UGA Law, graduating in 2002. In law school, she was a member of the 2001 Champion Intrastate Moot Court Team, President of her Second Year Class, and Chair of the Moot Court Board.  She clerked for Judge Charles Pannell and Justice Leah Sears before joining Brinson, Askew, and Berry in Rome, Georgia, where she spent her first years as a lawyer representing clients of all varieties from farmers, the City of Rome, and funeral homes in the Tri-State Crematory class action.

After leaving Rome to return home to Atlanta, she focused on medical malpractice defense while working for Mayfield, Commander and Pound. In 2007, she started Woodward and Stern with law school classmate Corey Stern, representing clients in cases ranging from personal injury to constitutional law, criminal defense and family law.

Natalie’s cases have received international and national attention, most notably her representation of Alex Boston, a 13-year-old girl whose defamation case established in 2014 that children may successfully bring suit for cyberbullying. She also brought many of the first cases after the passage of the Hidden Predator Act on behalf of survivors of child sexual abuse.

In January, Natalie traveled to Illinois and tried her first case outside of Georgia with her law partner, Michael Warshauer. Their client had suffered a leg amputation caused by a defectively designed forklift. After two weeks of trial, the jury returned a verdict of more than 13 million dollars. 

She serves as an Officer in the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association and a Special Master for the State Bar of Georgia. Last fall, she returned to UGA Law to teach for the first time on a course she created titled “The Psychology of Jury Selection.”

Natalie considers being a trial lawyer the best job in the world (if you don’t count coaching her son’s Little League team).
