What Does It Mean To Be A Certified Criminal Trial Attorney?

Hiring the right lawyer to handle your case can often be overwhelming ― not to mention confusing. In many cases, you may have no idea of where to find the attorney you need. Should you check the Yellow Pages, the internet or simply rely on the recommendation of a friend? Fortunately, in New Jersey, there is an attorney certification program that can help you make informed choices when looking for, and hiring, an attorney.

The program, which is administered by the New Jersey Board on Attorney Certification, helps potential clients identify lawyers who are particularly competent in certain areas of law. Not only does this program protect clients from false advertising, but it also raises the competency level of New Jersey attorneys. A lawyer may be designated by the Supreme Court as a Certified Criminal Trial Attorney if he or she satisfies the following five requirements:

  • The attorney passes a rigorous written examination covering several aspects of criminal law
  • The attorney has been a member of the New Jersey Bar, and has been in good standing, for at least five years
  • The attorney demonstrates an unblemished reputation among his or her peers by submitting a list of judges and attorneys who will verify the applicant's ability and character
  • The attorney demonstrates significant involvement in criminal litigation
  • The attorney has taken specific legal education courses in the three years leading up to his or her certification application

While this qualification process may sound complex and daunting, attorney David T. Schlendorf has already completed it three times. If you would like to learn more about the background of our lawyers, please clink on the profile links below:
