Civil Trial Attorney Certifications are issued by the New Jersey Supreme Court to lawyers who’ve submitted the details of their careers – trials skills, experience, and special education – to the scrutiny of expert Board members specially selected by the New Jersey Supreme Court to insure high standards of civil trial practice in the State of New Jersey. In addition, all applicants must pass a written examination, identify others lawyers who’ve opposed them in Court, and Judges before whom they’ve appeared, to attest to their professional reputation, integrity, and skills.
The Certification Program helps consumers identify lawyers who’ve demonstrated proficiency in specialized fields of law. Certification aids attorneys by in making their special credentials known to prospective clients and other attorneys. Certification also encourages lawyers to maintain and improve their levels of competence through continuing education, training, and best practices in their respective areas of law, including Civil Trial Law, Criminal Trial Law, Matrimonial Law, Workers Compensation Law, and Municipal Court Law.
Less than three (3%) percent of all attorneys in New Jersey are Board Certified in Civil Trial Law, and certifications last for just five years, after which the lawyer must renew his application for continued certification.
