How do I find a New Jersey Injury or Accident Lawyer?

Answer

While New Jersey does not allow lawyers to call themselves specialists, there are some credentials and qualifications you should look for when hiring an attorney to handle your accident claim. First, your attorney’s practice should focus solely (or almost entirely) on personal injury. A general practice attorney, generally speaking will not have the knowledge necessary to get you the maximum compensation you are entitled to by law. Your attorney should also have extensive trial experience and a strong record of success.

Finally, in 1980, the Supreme Court of New Jersey created a Civil Trial Certification. This certification is held by less than 3% of all lawyers licensed in New Jersey. To become certified, an attorney must have an unblemished reputation, pass a background check, and have no ethical violations on his or her legal record. References and recommendations are required as well as 30 additional credit hours of continuing legal education over the previous 3-year span. They are also required to have at least 10 trials or 30 trial days of courtroom experience. If and only if all of these requirements are met, the attorney must take a full-day written examination administered by the Supreme Court of New Jersey.

By hiring a Certified Civil Trial Attorney, you greatly increase your chance of maximizing your compensation from your injury claim.
