New Jersey Certified Criminal Trial Attorney
Experienced New Jersey Certified Criminal Trial Attorney Fights for Clients Rights in Burlington County, Camden County, Gloucester County, and Throughout New Jersey
I will give you quality representation. The Prosecutor cannot always prove what they claim they can prove. This can only be determined by a thorough review of the case file by an experienced attorney. An inexperienced or lazy attorney can be bullied by the Prosecution to your detriment. The only thing that matters is what the Prosecution can prove, and proving a case beyond a reasonable doubt is not easy. I have witnessed, on far too many occasions, defense attorneys who made the Prosecutor’s job easy by inexperience or laziness. The consequences of a criminal conviction are great and long-lasting. Your personal liberty and your future should not be sacrificed without a fight.
I am proud of my designation as a Certified Criminal Trial Attorney. This designation tells my clients that I know what I am doing and that I can be trusted to diligently protect their interests.

Frequently Asked Questions About Certified Trial Attorneys in New Jersey
Certified trial attorney is a designation granted by the New Jersey Supreme Court to Civil or Criminal Trial attorneys who are able to demonstrate sufficient levels of experience, education, knowledge, and skill in criminal trial practice. The Supreme Court, through its Board on Attorney Certification, designates only those lawyers who apply for certification and who are able to meet the standards set by the Board and approved by the Court.
The Certification program helps the public find attorneys who have demonstrated proficiency in specialized fields of law. Certification helps lawyers by giving them a way to make their experience known to the public and to other lawyers. Certification also encourages the maintenance and improvement of attorney competence in specialized fields of law.
At present, there are four specialty areas of practice that are approved for certification by the Supreme Court of New Jersey: civil trial law; criminal trial law; matrimonial law; and workers’ compensation law.
There are fewer than 250 Certified Criminal Trial Attorneys in the State of New Jersey.
Although many practicing trial attorneys now advertise in newspapers, on television, and in the Yellow Pages, only attorneys certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court are entitled to use the designation “Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Criminal Trial Attorney” on their letterhead, business cards, Yellow Pages listings, or in their advertisements.
