Through the union, Nathan helped unionize political campaigns, served as a union steward, and represented workers in disputes with management.
He then received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Texas School of Law in 2021. During his time at Texas Law, Nathan served as a pro bono scholar for the Supported Decision-Making Agreement (SDMA) clinic, attended the 2019 Peggy Browning Fund Workers’ Rights Conference, and worked for multiple local organizations and law firms dealing with workers’ rights violations, immigration issues, impact litigation, accessibility needs, and family law.

Nathan primarily handles plaintiff-side employment law litigation, focusing on Title VII (race, color, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation) discrimination, disability rights, age discrimination, wage issues, and other employment law issues.
