* When the New Jersey State Supreme Court designates attorneys as Certified Trial Attorneys, it means that such attorneys have attained a level of experience and skill at trial, and that they are proficient at pursuing litigation through trial. Certified Civil Trial Attorneys must meet the requirements for years practicing law and number of trials litigated, submit references from Judges and peers, and pass a rigorous exam in order to qualify. Less than 2% of the attorneys in New Jersey are Certified Civil Trial Attorneys.
