Senior Partner
Nauman, Smith, Shissler & Hall LP

“I clerked for my father at Nauman Smith during the summer before becoming a lawyer,” he said. “I found the problems … interesting and the people to be excellent. It was my pursuit from the very beginning.”

Nauman is a member of the firm’s tax, trusts and estates, nonprofit law, business and employment law and municipal law practice groups. He has extensive experience involving community foundations and has represented both small and medium sized businesses across the midstate.

He said the legal community is becoming more diverse and technologically advanced, which is a big win for the industry. “With more women and a commitment to diversification, the office and courtrooms more accurately reflect current society.” Also, computers and changes in how information is accessed through technology have greatly impacted how research is done.

One of the partners when he joined Nauman Smith, James H. Stewart Jr., taught him how to approach problems by “looking down the barrel of the rifle backwards,” Nauman said. “Stewart believed in an unconventional point of view and encouraged me to do the same.”
