Our attorneys have the expertise and experience to provide a full spectrum of legal services to our clients. Over the years, we have become one of the most prestigious and well-respected law firms in New Jersey.

In a nod to the firm’s reputation, the New Jersey Law Journal named Pashman Stein its 2023 Law Firm of the Year—an honor that recognizes overall excellence, a broad spectrum of achievements, depth of talent, and accomplishments in categories including litigation, bar leadership, and mentorship. The firm is proud of this recognition and appreciative of our clients for trusting us to handle the work that led to this honor.

Many of our attorneys are listed in Best Lawyers in America and Chambers USA and have been elected as Fellows of specialty practice area organizations. We have reached and maintained that level of excellence because of the quality of the individuals we hire.

We are a growing firm that hires outstanding entry-level and lateral lawyers. We always welcome the opportunity to bring on experienced attorneys with compatible practices. If you think your experience and client base would be a good fit at the firm, we encourage you to reach out to us.

Your Career

Many of our new associates join us after clerking for one or more years for state or federal judges, serving in the Attorney General's office, or training at larger law firms. While outstanding law school performance is a major factor in our hiring decisions, we also focus on a candidate’s background, experience, and unique talent that candidate can contribute to our practice. Our Diversity & Hiring Committee is tasked with implementing measures to increase our recruitment and retention of diverse applicants.

We take great pride in the fact that other leading law firms, judges, and lawyers have repeatedly turned to us over the years when faced with their own legal problems. Clients and other lawyers routinely refer us cases because of our proven success record—they trust us to handle the most complicated matters and know that we deliver exceptional service in an efficient manner. Judges know us well – for insight, thoughtful analysis, and creativity.
