Finding an Experienced and Respected Personal Injury Attorney in Monmouth County, NJ
Experience plays a huge role in personal injury law. While you may be interested in attorneys coming from prestigious institutions and solid backgrounds as well, there is no substitute for on the job experience serving local clients. Of course, simply representing clients should not be the only criteria you seek either – a history of positive outcomes, winning landmark cases, and a history of successful settlements and verdicts are all equally important. It is also a great idea to find out what types of cases the attorney(s) have tried in the past to see if their experience fits your needs.
While there are many qualified and experienced personal injury attorneys in New Jersey, it is also important that you feel comfortable with the legal counsel you choose to retain. Referrals, testimonials, and an over the phone or in person meeting all may help you to get to know your potential representative ahead of time. In many cases, you are trusting this person, and by extension their organization, with your family’s financial future.
Freehold Personal Injury Attorneys Define NJ Supreme Court Certification
The Supreme Court of New Jersey has a process by which they certify certain attorneys to demonstrate that those individuals are experienced, knowledgeable, educated, and skilled in their particular areas of law. In order to be certified, lawyers must complete the following:
- Be a member of the New Jersey Bar for a minimum of five (5) years in good standing
- Complete necessary continuing education courses for a minimum of three (3) years
- Pass a formal examination which tests legal knowledge in the area of practice
- Get the recommendation from peers, judges, and other legal professionals as a testimonial to their professionalism and aptitude
Only about two (2) percent of active attorneys are currently certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court. This goes to show how difficult and rigorous the application process can truly be. If possible, selecting an attorney with this certification can give you the reassurance that you are securing the services of a well-respected, experienced and deeply knowledgable professional.
