Profession LogoATTORNEY

Natalie Green Hosea serves as the Regional Partner for TrustWorks in Georgia, leveraging her extensive experience to steer and inspire local attorneys in delivering top-tier legal services. Based in Atlanta, Natalie is celebrated for her holistic approach and adeptness in guiding clients through estate planning and probate matters since founding her own firm in 2005. Transitioning primarily to estate planning and probate law in 2015, Natalie draws from her early career to identify rare issues, empowering clients with crucial knowledge to protect their financial interests through strategic business structuring and trust creation.

Natalie's personal journey of raising a special-needs child provides her with invaluable insight into the challenges confronting similar families, reflected in her membership in the Academy of Special Needs Planners and her commitment to tailored services. Beyond her legal expertise, Natalie actively engages with her community and professional associations, holding positions such as Vice Chair of the Cherokee County Board of Ethics and participating in various sections of the Georgia Bar Association.

Licensed to practice in state and federal courts in Georgia and Tennessee, including both states' Supreme Courts and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Natalie embodies a fusion of legal acumen and financial strategy. She serves as a guiding beacon for clients navigating intricate legal terrains, ensuring not only their financial security but also the preservation of their legacies. In her leisure time, Natalie cherishes family moments and contributes to her husband's live concert events at Twisted Creek Farm, where she tends to her beloved Spanish horses, Benicio and Lobito.

For many years of her practice, Ms. Hosea served as a guardian ad litem attorney for hundreds of Georgia’s abused, neglected, and delinquent children. It is through that work that Ms. Hosea developed her knowledge, skills, and background concerning challenges that face families who have children with special needs. It is not uncommon for parents of special-needs children to collapse under the stress and pressure of having a child with needs that exceed the parent’s knowledge, abilities, and resources. Consequently, these parental strains result in the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) removing the child from the parents for neglect. When special needs children act out in educational settings, they might be charged with juvenile delinquency offenses by educational districts frustrated by such children acting out, unknowingly causing the child unnecessary trauma of police involvement.

Several years into her legal practice, Ms. Hosea was introduced to the elder law practice area when an existing client found themselves in an emergency situation – the client’s elderly parent, residing in a nursing home, was put in a precarious and dangerous situation requiring an emergency guardianship petition. The desire and drive to protect those who cannot protect themselves propelled Ms. Hosea’s drive to learn all she could to build her practice to assist clients with elder law issues and needs. Ms. Hosea is a member of Elder Law Answers, a community of legal professionals dedicated to providing resources and information to seniors their family members.

As a parent to a special-needs child, Ms. Hosea also understands the unique stress and concern facing parents of special-needs children. The child’s adult life and independence, finances, and resources available after the parents pass away or are unable to care for their special-needs child all present pressing and important planning requirements that cannot be left to chance. Ms. Hosea is a member of the Academy of Special Needs Planners, an organization and community of professionals involved in providing services and resources to families and the public who have individuals with special needs in their lives or for whom they provide services.

Seeing that many clients lacked financial resources to fund care for themselves and care for their special-needs children, Ms. Hosea attained her Georgia life, accident, and sickness insurance license to offer clients the option to provide insurance to fund special needs trusts for their special-needs children while protecting the child’s ability to maintain public benefits. Insurance provides a powerful option to leverage available funds for care in the event of incapacity and to care for loved ones who will need resources and care upon a caregiver’s passing.
