DeNittis Osefchen Attorneys Are Certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as Civil Trial Attorneys
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. The Supreme Court designates lawyers as “Certified” only when they’ve met those standards and criteria mandated by the Court.
How does an attorney become a “Certified Trial Attorney”?
- An attorney must be a member of the Bar for a minimum of five years, and show that they’ve actively participated in the preparation and pursuance of numerous litigated matters;
- Attorneys must verify that they’ve completed the mandatory number of trials in the Superior Court of the State of New Jersey, and, must fulfill mandated continuing legal education requirements;
- An attorney applying for Certification must submit peer attorney and Judge references from those who would acknowledge and confirm the attorney’s skills, ethics and character;
- Finally, attorneys must pass a written exam which specifically addresses trial practice issues and procedures.
Certifications assist the consumer in identifying those attorneys who have reached a high level of competence and experience within a particular or specialized practice of law. Though there are in excess of 77,000 attorneys licensed to practice law in the state of New Jersey, as of the end of 2015 there were only 1162 Certified Civil Trial Attorneys in the state. At DeNittis Osefchen, Stephen P. DeNittis is a Certified Civil Trial Attorneys.
