This includes advising clients on mergers and acquisitions, various business ventures, and creative health care business arrangements. In addition, she counsels and assists clients in regulatory compliance, including HIPAA/HITECH, Anti-kickback Statutes, and Stark Law, and respective state regulations.

Pashman Stein Walder Hayden P.C.

Many of Pashman Stein Walder Hayden’s appellate clients are referred to us by other law firms that have successfully (or unsuccessfully) represented the client at trial, but require our firm’s experience to protect the judgment on appeal (or to demonstrate the reversible errors committed below).

Our attorneys have regularly appeared before the New Jersey Supreme Court and the Appellate Division and the Third Circuit Court of Appeals on a wide range of issues. Pashman Stein Walder Hayden attorneys have mastered the art of condensing voluminous trial records into cogent, forceful arguments that demonstrate the merits of our clients’ position.

In crafting their written arguments and preparing for oral argument, Pashman Stein Walder Hayden attorneys draw on retired New Jersey Supreme Justice Gary Stein’s unique insight and experience, reflected in the more than 365 majority and dissenting opinions he authored during his 17 year tenure as an Associate Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court, which cover virtually every area of New Jersey state law, including education, constitutional law, insurance coverage, zoning and land use law, civil and criminal procedure, and attorney discipline.

Pashman Stein Walder Hayden also routinely serves as co-counsel with other law firms to assist them in the preparation of appellate papers. Our attorneys also have been called upon to help other firms frame their arguments on appeal, to prepare petitions for certification to the New Jersey Supreme Court, and even to serve as moot court judges to prepare for oral argument.
