Natashe is located in Old Oakland’s historic Dunn’s Building, which served as the western terminus hotel when the “golden spike” was driven in 1869 to link Eastern states with the Far West. The Dunn’s Building was carefully restored to its original condition in 1989 by Tom Wolf, a professor of California history. Miller & Washington, LLP became a part of an even greater link between Asia, the United States and the world. It opened the first U.S. law office in Vietnam after the war, established the Vietnam Green Building Council; and IPO Pang, PC (www.ipopang.com), headed by Fortune 500 attorney, Peter Pang, has partnered with us in various projects in China and Southeast Asia. The firm also works with a network of attorneys who are specialists in other areas.

Natashe Washington is an experienced litigator who had a distinguished career as a Senior Prosecutor in high profile criminal cases in South Africa for ten years before passing the New York and California bar exams and joining Miller & Washington.
