I was connected to Pashman Stein by a dear friend who was part of the firm for many years. She also knew me and my goals, and thought it would be a good match (even though I thought that I wanted a small firm). As it turned out, she was 100% right! Pashman is a place where I can continue to service my clients with the attention they deserve, while also being able to offer them the benefits a large firm can provide. Of course, it did not hurt that the firm culture and environment are pretty great!

Background

Naomi Becker Collier’s practice is concentrated in the area of trust and estates with an emphasis on addressing the specific needs of aging individuals, people with disabilities, and their families. She provides her clients with practical guidance and education, addresses their individual needs and assists them in achieving their goals, while simultaneously maximizing the flexibility and planning options available to them.

Naomi’s elder and disability law practice focuses on estate and lifetime planning, elder law counseling, asset preservation planning, special needs planning, planning for incapacity, trust and estate administration, Medicaid planning and applications, and guardianships. Her trust and estate practice includes the utilization of tax minimization strategies, drafting and reviewing complex wills, revocable trusts, GRATs, QPRTs, insurance trusts, dynastic trusts, powers of attorney, and health care directives.

Prior to joining Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, Naomi developed her practice in boutique law firms, first specializing in elder law, and subsequently, in estate and tax planning for high net worth individuals. Her current practice effectively and purposefully combines these related, yet unique, areas of the law while emphasizing the importance of promoting the best quality of life for her clients and their families.
