Natalie Barletta is an Associate Attorney at Clouthier Law, PLLC. Natalie zealously represents her clients and thrives in a fast-paced environment where she can creatively respond to the distinct challenges her clients face. Her legal experience includes oil and gas litigation and title examination, general civil litigation, mediation, family law, and probate. She has drafted briefs and motions filed in both Texas state and federal courts. She was the second chair member of an arbitration trial team that successfully defended a complex lawsuit where plaintiffs claimed $500 million in damages. Natalie truly enjoys the art of legal advocacy and takes pride in thoroughly developing well-grounded arguments as she advocates passionately for her clients.

For the last few years, Natalie has used her legal experience to give back to others and to the community by teaching Federal and Texas Government at Lone Star College and English and debate to middle and high school students. Her debate students have placed every year in regional and state level competitions. She also serves on the Board of Directors for The Way, Truth & Life Outreach organization in Waller, Texas, and provides pro bono legal advice to a women’s divorce support group at The Vineyard in Tomball, Texas.

Natalie graduated Magna Cum Laude from South Texas College of Law Houston. During law school, she was a national champion moot court advocate and was recognized both for her speaking and brief writing. She was also a member of South Texas Law Review, was inducted into the Order of the Lytae for outstanding academic achievement, received the Academic Merit Scholarship, and achieved top honors in several courses, including Civil Procedure and Legal Research and Writing. After passing the Texas Bar Exam, she went on to take the Ohio Bar Exam and scored in the 99th percentile. During law school she clerked at the 14th Court of Appeals for the State of Texas and at Justice for Children, learning not only the rules and procedures necessary to succeed in the courtroom, but also learning the vital importance of fighting for justice for those who cannot fight for themselves.

Natalie has been married to her husband, Chris, since 2004, and they have two children. She loves Crossfit, reading, relaxing at the beach, and attending her children’s numerous sporting events during her free time.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
“Susan has worked tirelessly for years filing appeals on my behalf. Finally her efforts and persistence has paid off. After serving 11 and 1/2 years, I was released from Federal Prison and have been able to return to my family and help once again with raising my children [now age 16]. My family and I owe a debt of gratitude which we will never be able to repay. The love we feel for Susan is immeasurable.” Joe R.
★★★★★
“Our case was complicated and time critical. Susan took charge of the entire process, keeping us updated with texts, phone calls and emails. She worked through a Holiday weekend to make certain our case got the attention and success required to bring our loved one home. It is also very important to know that she has sophisticated research tools, which are IMPERATIVE when you have to navigate through the Appeals process.” Jack H.
★★★★★
“Susan is a thoroughly dedicated professional that has a unique empathy for cases that reveal the misapplication of justice that so often affects those with limited resources. Through her tireless efforts, one of my best friends had six years reduced from his sentence. The family and I will be forever grateful to Susan.” James P.
