MEET OUR CERTIFIED NEW JERSEY SUPREME COURT ATTORNEYS
What is attorney certification and how can it help our clients?
Finding the right attorney is to the benefit of both you and the attorney you choose to represent you. That is why the Supreme Court of New Jersey has directed the Board on Attorney Certification to administer the attorney certification program in an effort both to protect consumers from false advertising and to raise the level of competence of attorneys in the State of New Jersey. This program is designed to help you make an informed decision when seeking and selecting a lawyer.
The Board on Attorney Certification was established by the Supreme Court of New Jersey in 1980 for the purpose of helping consumers find attorneys who have a recognized level of competence in particular fields of law. Attorneys may be designated by the Supreme Court as “certified attorneys” if they:
- Are able to demonstrate sufficient levels of experience, education, knowledge and skill in a specific area of law or practice
- Have passed a rigorous examination
- Have been recognized by their peers as having sufficient skills and reputation in the designated specialty.
An attorney must meet the following requirements to become certified:
- Has been a member in good standing of the New Jersey Bar for at least five years
- Has taken a specific number of continuing legal education courses in the three years prior to filing an application
- Demonstrates substantial involvement in preparation of litigated matters
- Demonstrates an unblemished reputation by submitting a list of attorneys and judges who will attest to the applicant’s character and ability
- Passes a written examination covering various aspects of practice in the designated specialty
