Corrine is now certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a matrimonial law attorney. Evan and Domenic are now certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as civil trial attorneys.
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; and have been recognized by their peers as having sufficient skills and reputation in the designated specialty. Additionally, in order to become certified, an attorney must meet the following requirements:
- been a member in good standing of the New Jersey Bar for at least five years;
- taken a specific number of continuing legal education courses in the three years prior to filing an application;
- demonstrate substantial involvement in preparation of litigated matters;
- demonstrate an unblemished reputation by submitting a list of attorneys and judges who will attest to the applicant’s character and ability;
- pass a written examination covering various aspects of practice in the designated specialty; and,
- been on trial and tried a minimum of 10 matters (or five matters in the last three years)
Congratulations to Corrine, Evan, and Domenic!
