Meet the Principal

S. Natasha Gillis, Esquire

Attorney at Law

S. Natasha Gillis, Esq. is a dental and healthcare attorney whose practice focuses mainly on practice mergers and acquisitions, partnership changes, start-up practice guidance, commercial lease reviews, commercial real estate purchases and associate-ship contracts.


As a Northern Virginia native, Natasha graduated from George Mason University magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Government and International Politics, concentrating on Political Theory and Law and minoring in English Non-Fiction Writing and Editing in 2006.  Upon graduating, she attended Howard University School of Law where she served as a student attorney in the Civil Rights Clinic and obtained her Juris Doctor degree (J.D.) in 2009.  


Natasha spent two years working with the Howard University School of Law Civil Rights Clinic where she provided pro bono services as a student attorney to represent plaintiffs whose civil rights were jeopardized.  It was during this time that the healthcare industry first sparked her interest. She advocated for a skilled African American obstetrician who who was prevented from delivering a baby in a local hospital exclusively due to his race. Coming from a background of small business owners, Natasha graduated law school with a passion of helping doctors of all races and backgrounds achieve the ultimate goal of practice ownership.


Natasha frequently speaks at seminars including the 2018 Small Business Conference hosted by the George Mason Enterprise Center and as a guest lecturer at the Practice Management class at VCU School of Dentistry with the goal of educating students and dentists about entrepreneurship, specifically the acquisition/sale process. 


Natasha has teamed up with a skilled dental practice consulting team, Zar Dental Consulting, LLC to launch a series of educational courses for aspiring practice owners through their joint project Leap Into Practice™ by the ZarGill Group. Natasha will be working in partnership with the Virginia Academy of General Dentistry to launch a unique mentorship program through Leap Into Practice ™ set to launch in Spring 2021. 


She currently co-hosts a podcast called Dental Bites with Dental Zorro and The Smiling Lawyer and administers a group called Empowering Business Women in Dentistry.

During her free time, Natasha enjoys hiking, jogging and exploring the outdoors with her husband, two children and cavachon, Bella.

Testimonials

Purchasing a dental practice

"In my dental practice acquisition, I can honestly say Natasha was the most important and diligent team member I worked with. She explained each step of the process very thoroughly, was always on top of the case, and always two steps ahead of the game. She certainly had my best interest in mind, was honest, experienced and efficient. She made time for my multiple questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Natasha; I couldn't have asked for a better acquisition attorney."-- Dr. K.

Purchasing dental practice
5.0 stars


"Natasha had already lots of experience in procedures for purchasing the medical and dental practice. She was honest and straightforward legally and ethically in giving me advice from the start to the finish. She explained the advantages and disadvantages of the options and provided continuous information and quick response on the status and actions of the issues. She also provided copies of all correspondence and documents related to the my matter, and protected my interests and advised on my concerns when making important decisions. I chose the right attorney to work with me. I strongly recommend Natasha as your lawyer for your future. Now your turn and good luck!"-- Dr. Jung Oh, D.M.D.



Associate (employee) agreement review

5.0 stars


"Natasha is an excellent lawyer and I enjoyed working with her. She helped with my contract review/negotiations for an associate position as a pediatric dentist. She was very thorough, available to talk things over in a timely manner (she is very easy to reach during and after business hours), and helped me advocate for my best interests. She took time to explain the nuances of dental contracts in a language I could easily understand. She addressed all my concerns, never rushed me or pressured me, and always had my best interest in mind. I plan to use her services in the future and would highly recommend her to other dentists. She allots evening hours to talk with dentists which is extremely convenient!"-- Dr. R, D.D.S.


Commercial lease review

"Natasha is wonderful to work with! We are starting a new business and she was very helpful in explaining how to navigate commercial leases and gave valuable advice on starting our business and cautioned us on what to be careful of. She was kind, courteous and listened to our issues very carefully. If you're looking for an attorney who truly cares, I would highly recommend Natasha!"-- A.G.
