Pashman Stein Walder Hayden P.C. Named New Jersey Law Journal’s Law Firm of the Year 2023*


New Jersey State Bar Foundation Honors Raymond M. Brown with 2022 Medal of Honor Award


Pashman Stein Walder Hayden P.C. is pleased to announce that partner Raymond M. Brown has been named a recipient of the 2022 Medal of Honor Award by the New Jersey State Bar Foundation (NJSBF). Brown will be recognized at an awards dinner on September 20th for his leadership in advancing the practice of law and for his successful practice focused on criminal defense and complex commercial litigation.

“I have known Raymond M. Brown for many years, and he has always been a superb litigator and a lawyer’s lawyer. The criteria for receiving the Medal of Honor is consistent with the standard of excellence that I, and the legal community, see in Raymond’s legal practice and community service,” said Joseph A. Hayden Jr., co-chair of Pashman Stein’s Criminal Defense and Governmental & Internal Investigations practices, “and we congratulate him on this highly selective award.”

“We are thrilled that Raymond has been selected to receive this award,” said Michael S. Stein, managing partner of Pashman Stein. “Raymond exemplifies the high standard of professional excellence and moral character that all lawyers strive to achieve. I am proud that Pashman Stein now has two Medal of Honor recipients, as our partner Justin P. Walder was honored in 2018.”

Brown is a highly respected civil and criminal litigator with decades of experience in white collar criminal defense, international human rights compliance, internal investigations, and complex commercial litigation. He has served as a trial lawyer in several high-profiles cases and, since 2021, has appeared before the New Jersey Supreme Court three times representing amicus curiae on important criminal law issues including jury strikes motivated by “implicit or unconscious bias.” Brown has been instrumental in the development of the practice of law concerning the regulation and enforcement of business requirements for human rights compliance.

Brown’s father Raymond A. Brown received the NJSBF Medal of Honor in 2002. “It is beyond gratifying to receive this honor, and to follow the footsteps of my father,” said Brown.

The NJSBF considers the Medal of Honor its most prestigious award and it is given annually to professionals who have made significant contributions to the advancement or improvement of the justice system or the betterment of the legal profession in New Jersey. The award also recognizes professional excellence as demonstrated by accomplishments in the law or service to the profession and community.
