Natasha Washington's Story

Natasha Washington Introduction

My name is Natasha Washington and I’ll be 41 next month. I’m an attorney and for the past nine years I’ve worked in trust and estates. I love my job, but sometimes it’s hard being the only African-American partner in my firm.
I met Curtis 13 years ago when I was still in law school. He came to talk to the African American law students, and it was like he put us under a spell or something. All the women fell in love with him. You need to understand the man was a sight to behold. He put himself through law school doing commercials and modeling for catalogs. And he’s brilliant. He was the first black man to make partner in his firm - and we’re talking over a decade ago. When he asked me out to dinner, I thought I had died and gone to heaven.

The problems began later.
