Severide Law

Articling Student

From careful financial planning and investment portfolio management to international immigration representation, my focus has always been the faithful application of my clients’ core values and interests to the particular matter at hand, whether it has been navigating the bewildering world of U.S. immigration pitfalls to bring capable and competent workers to that land of opportunity, or helping Canadians plan for their own and their children’s educational and retirement needs in this bountiful country to which I myself immigrated.

At the firm I will expand and refine my knowledge to help businesses, individuals and families with advice through seasons of uncertainty, struggle, and growth.

Educational Background:

Born and reared in Houston, Texas, Nat moved to Canada in 2000 and has been a Canadian since 2007, sharing a home with his veterinarian wife, two dance-crazy yet scholarly daughters, and one incredibly affectionate Welsh Springer Spaniel.  Additionally, there are three cats who hardly acknowledge what a good life they lead.  He has in the past practiced real estate law and general litigation in Bellingham, Washington, financial planning and portfolio management in White Rock, and U.S. immigration law in Burnaby and downtown Vancouver.  He plays soccer and enjoys various other outdoor activities in his free time.
