Hawthorne, NJ – Hawthorne resident and former mayoral candidate Naomi B. Collier was among nine Pashman Stein Walder Hayden attorneys who were listed as “Bergen County Top Lawyers” in the November 2017 edition of Bergen Magazine. 

Bergen Magazine contracted Boulder-based firm DataJoe Research to help compile the list.  DataJoe Research collected input from attorneys around the country through an online process and verified that each participant whose data was accepted had an active license with the State of New Jersey regulatory board.  Collier was chosen for her work in the practice of wills, trusts, estates, and elder law.

Collier obtained her B.A. from North Carolina State University in 1998 and her J.D. from North Carolina Central University School of Law in 2001.  She is a member of the New Jersey State Bar Association Elder and Disability Law Section, Bergen County Bar Association, Women Lawyers in Bergen County, National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, and the Estate Planning Council of Northern New Jersey.

Not only is the fourteen-year Hawthorne resident accomplished in the legal field, she is active in the Parent-Teacher Organizations of Passaic County Technical Institute and Lincoln Middle School.  Additionally, she is a co-founder of the Hawthorne Farmer's Market and has served as past president of the Hawthorne Democratic Club.
