Why You Should Hire a Certified Criminal Trial Attorney

Criminal trial attorney

Certified trial attorney is a title granted by the New Jersey Supreme Court to criminal trial attorneys that demonstrate a higher level of experience, education, knowledge and skills in their criminal trial practice. This certification is solely granted to those lawyers who apply for it. The Supreme Court, through its board on attorney certification, grants this title to those lawyers who are able to meet the standards set by the board and approved by the court. An attorney can be a certified criminal trial attorney if:

  • He or she has been a member of the New Jersey Bar for at least five years.
  • He or she has taken a specific number of legal education courses in the years prior to filing an application.
  • He or she demonstrates substantial involvement in the preparation of litigated matters.
  • He or she submits a list of attorneys and judges who will attest to the applicant’s character and ability.
  • He or she passes a written examination covering various aspects of trial practice in their designated specialty.

If you or a loved one has been arrested or charged with a crime, it is in your best interest to hire a certified trial attorney because:

  • Certification is the highest level of evaluation for competency, experience, professionalism and ethics within a specific area of the law.
  • When you hire a certified criminal defense attorney, you can be sure that your attorney is a specialist in their area of the law.
  • Certification is an assurance that the attorney has the skills and experience to succeed in the high-pressure environment of a courtroom.
