Why Retain A Certified Attorney?

Finding and hiring the right attorney is challenging. You want to be sure that you retain the most qualified attorney to handle your matter. After all, it is your rights that are at stake, and hiring the wrong attorney can have disastrous consequences for you and for your family.

An attorney who has been certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court has significant experience, has demonstrated a high level of competence in workers’ compensation law and has earned the respect of her colleagues as well as the judges of compensation.

To become certified, an attorney must fulfill the following criteria:

  • Submit testimonials by three judges of compensation attesting to a high level of litigation skills and good character
  • Pass a written examination (approximately 6 hours) in New Jersey workers’ compensation law
  • Submit evaluations by five other attorneys attesting to his or her high level of competence and good character
  • Provide details of significant trial experience, including complex cases such as Second Injury Fund matters
  • Complete continuing legal education requirements
  • Be a member in good standing of the New Jersey bar for more than five years

Why Should I Hire A State Supreme Court-Certified Workers’ Compensation Attorney?

The Supreme Court of New Jersey directed the Board on Attorney Certification to create and administer this program to raise the level of competence of those attorneys who concentrate their practices on serving injured workers.

The New Jersey Supreme Court has created this program to give you this assurance.
