Criminal Trial Attorneys in New Jersey

Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Criminal Trial Attorney - In 1980, the Supreme Court of New Jersey established the Board on Attorney Certification.

The purpose of the attorney certification program was to help the public find an attorney who had a recognized level of competence in particular fields of law such as Criminal Trial Law.


To earn the designation, the criminal trial attorney must devoted a substantial portion of professional time to the preparation of criminal cases in the state Superior Court, which includes the trial courts, or the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.

The criminal justice attorney must show completion of certain task requirements including a minimum of twenty-five trial days in contested actions concerning indictable offenses.

The regulations provide that the Board will also consider contested actions involving "domestic violence orders based upon crimes; contempt charges in family court; juvenile cases involving crimes; and trial-type hearings in Superior Court." R.G. 203:1(e)(1).

Before earning the designation as "Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Criminal Trial Attorney" the lawyer must also submit to peer review by other attorneys and judges, complete continuing legal education courses, and pass a rigorous examination.
