Choosing a Certified Civil Trial Attorney Helps You


When you obtain legal counsel from a Certified Civil Trial Attorney, you are getting the best representation possible. This accomplishment means that a lawyer has demonstrated an especially high level of skills and experience in the area of civil trials. The New Jersey Supreme Court grants this designation to only the most skilled, educated, and knowledgeable lawyers. By meeting the necessary standards set by the Board on Attorney Certification and the Courts, Paul da Costa at the law firm of Snyder Sarno D'Aniello Maceri & da Costa LLC, in Essex, Somerset, and Bergen Counties, has proven his excellence and commitment to clients by providing the very best and most talented representation available.

Certified by the State

Out of more than 75,000 active attorneys in New Jersey, less than 2 percent hold a Board certification. To qualify and be considered for the certification, attorneys must meet a stringent list of criteria, which includes:

  • More than five years of good standing with the New Jersey Bar
  • The successful completion of various ongoing continuing legal education requirements
  • Favorable evaluations and references by judges and attorneys who are familiar with their work
  • Verifying that they have completed the mandatory number of trials in the Supreme Court of the State of New Jersey
  • The successful completion of a written test, which demonstrates their experience in trial practice issues and procedures

Choosing a Certified Attorney

Selecting a law firm or an attorney who has the experience and qualifications you require can be a difficult task. Therefore, to make the process of selecting legal counsel easier and more effective, the Supreme Court of New Jersey through the Board of Attorney Certification awards certifications to those who exhibited a high level of competence in specialized fields of the law. By choosing a Certified Civil Trial Attorney, you will have the legal guidance of a professional with superior levels of experience, education, knowledge, and competence in specialized areas of the law.
