Commitment to Our Community
At Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, we believe it is our responsibility, and privilege, to contribute to the public good and give back. The establishment of the Stein Public Interest Center is the embodiment of that principle and the tangible result of our commitment to our society. Established in 2019, the Center is dedicated to advancing social, racial and economic justice; protecting civil liberties and constitutional rights; and promoting an open and transparent government. Through the Stein Public Interest Center, our attorneys performed more than 6,000 hours of pro bono work in 2021.
In addition to the firm’s pro bono work, public interest legal matters, and charitable giving, many of our attorneys also give back to the community by volunteering their time and experience to academic, civic, cultural, political and religious organizations and foundations in their communities.

Our Diversity & Hiring Committee leads our efforts to recruit, retain and develop talented employees with diverse backgrounds and to build an inclusive workforce. The Diversity & Hiring Committee at the firm aims to not only recruit and retain a diverse workforce, but also foster and encourage employee engagement.
