Natalie J. Laflamme, Esq.
I grew up in Berlin, New Hampshire. I moved to Washington, D.C. to attend Georgetown University. During college I worked as an ESL tutor and played in the pep band where I dazzled with my skills on the saxophone, cymbals, and, most notably, the cowbell. I then attended law school at Duke University. While at Duke, I made a point to get a variety of experiences through different internships and volunteer opportunities, including enforcing airline regulations at the Federal Aviation Administration, representing victims of domestic violence through Legal Aid, advocating for students with special needs, assisting low-income individuals with their income taxes, helping Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) applicants, and working full-time with the appellate section of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in Washington, D.C.
After graduating, I moved back to New Hampshire to clerk for Justice Robert J. Lynn on the New Hampshire Supreme Court. (“Clerk” is a fancy way of saying I helped research and draft judicial opinions.) I then spent three years at a law firm in Concord where I gained experience in a wide variety of practice areas, with a focus on civil litigation and labor & employment. In addition to my solo practice, I am an adjunct professor at UNH Franklin Pierce School of Law, where I teach legal analysis and writing
I enjoy being a part of the greater Concord community. I serve as President of Sycamore Community Garden, a nonprofit that provides community garden space to low-income families, particularly New Americans. I am a 2018 fellow and current board member of New Leaders Council (NLC) New Hampshire, a training program for progressive young professionals. For the past few years I have volunteered as a judge on both the state and national level for We The People, a high school civics competition. I am also an active member of the New Hampshire bar, through which I volunteer as a DOVE (Domestic Violence Emergency Project) attorney and serve on the Gender Equality Committee.
When I’m not working or participating in these organizations, I spend my time kayaking, listening to classic rock music, experimenting with nut-based “cheese,” and hanging out with my husband, our daughter, and our dog.
