Nathan is a partner at Pottroff & Karlin, and strongly believes in the firm’s commitment to advancing public safety across the country.  Since joining the law firm in 2012, Nathan has devoted the majority of his practice to fighting for railroad accident victims.  There are over 3,000 train accidents a year.  Hundreds of people lose their lives and even more are seriously injured.  Nathan understands that life can be profoundly changed in an instant by a train collision.  He also understands many of these railroad tragedies are preventable.  Nathan is active in courtrooms throughout the country advocating for a safer tomorrow.  He is committed to serving the community and furthering safety in the transportation industry.

Nathan received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Kansas School of Law and his Bachelor of Science in Economics from Kansas State University.  In law school, Nathan also received his certificate in Trial Advocacy and served two consecutive years at the Kansas Journal of Law & Public Policy where he authored an article on how the railroad industry is attempting to use legal arguments to avoid being held accountable for public safety.
