Natasha Sadeghian de la Garza
"I feel blessed to have the opportunity to help those whose lives have been forever changed."
NATASHA SADEGHIAN DE LA GARZA is a personal injury attorney who is passionate about effectuating change through her work. In this pursuit, she represents victims of serious and catastrophic personal injuries in various contexts, including commercial truck and auto collisions; medical malpractice, civil rights violations; and workplace accidents.
Getting Justice for Clients
“I feel blessed to have the opportunity to help those whose lives have been forever changed because of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, to hold responsible parties accountable, and in doing so, to effectuate change for the better.”
While Natasha started her legal career practicing immigration law and representing business owners in commercial litigation, she discovered her true calling in personal injury law. She joined a personal injury law firm as a second-year lawyer. More than 15 years later, she feels fortunate that her work at The de la Garza Law Group allows her to continue in this practice area and help those who have suffered because of others’ negligence or wrongdoing.
Natasha counts representing the Escobar family in a civil rights case against the City of Houston among her career highlights. The pursuit of justice for the Escobar’s 13-year-old son, Eli Escobar, resulted in significant changes to firearms training at the Houston Police Academy and the creation of The Escobar Rule.
“I have absolutely no issue with letting wrongdoers know when they have deviated from what any reasonable human being would consider right and just, and that they have a moral obligation to take responsibility for their actions.”
Natasha’s strengths as an attorney lie in her attention to detail and relentlessness in righting wrongs. While she loves being in court, Natasha is also willing to put in the work outside the courtroom. She has always enjoyed the process of discovery, learning about the details of a case, getting to the bottom of what happened to find the proverbial “smoking gun,” which proves to be an asset when assisting clients.
As a native Houstonian, Natasha has strong ties to the community. She is currently a sustaining member of The Junior League of Houston, Inc., after 10 years of serving in the organization alongside an amazing group of women. She is also an alumnus of The Children’s Fund, Inc., and an active volunteer at her daughters’ school.
When she is not practicing law, Natasha spends most of her time taking care of her and her husband’s two young daughters and the family dog and cat. In her spare time, she also enjoys cooking, baking, gardening, studying languages and learning about other cultures and current international affairs.
