Why Should You Use a Certified Civil Trial Attorney?

It’s confusing trying to choose an attorney. You might have never needed an attorney before, so you ask a friend to refer you to someone, or you look in the Yellow Pages where hundreds or even thousands of attorneys are listed. But how do you choose one attorney over another, and how can you be sure that you will choose the right attorney to handle your particular legal problem?

Finding the right attorney is to your benefit and to the attorney’s benefit as well. That is why the Supreme Court of New Jersey has directed the Board on Attorney Certification to carry out the certification program in an effort to raise the level of competence of attorneys in this state. This program is designed to help you make an informed decision when seeking an attorney.
