Naomi Paasch of Moorhead, Minnesota has been awarded an Advocacy Achievement Award by Legal Services of Northwest Minnesota (LSNM) for her work as a Judicare attorney.

LSNM provides free, high-quality civil legal help to low-income residents of 22 northwestern Minnesota counties using staffed offices.  The award is given “in recognition of outstanding legal work making a difference to the disadvantaged.” Anne Hoefgen, Executive Director of LSNM said, “Naomi has helped hundreds of family law clients that are navigating an extremely difficult personal experience. Without her help, those individuals would have to face the complexities of the court system on their own.”

Naomi graduated from the University of North Dakota law school. While participating in the Legal Clinic during law school, she had a desire to help those without requisite resources or knowledge to help themselves. Upon graduation she began practicing in Casselton, ND working primarily in family law and litigation. Her desire to serve those needing legal representation led her to become a Judicare Attorney with LSNM, and although now semi-retired, she has done so for over 35 years.
