What is a New Jersey Certified Civil Trial Attorney?

Video Transcript:

Petrillo: Mr. Goldberg, why don’t you start out, why don’t you introduce yourself and tell us what a certified civil trial attorney is?

Goldberg: Basically what I do is try the cases here and through the years I’ve gained trial experience and ultimately I’ve become a certified trial attorney. If you think about a board certification for a doctor, it’s similar to that except if you go to a board certified orthopedist about 50, 60% of the orthopedist in New Jersey are board certified. In New Jersey, only 2% of the attorneys are board certified, so it’s a little more super specialized in order to achieve that for a trial attorney. And basically what we do is we have to be recommended by judges in our area. We have to have had enough completed trials, we have had enough other litigation events, and then we have to take a two day test, then we’ve become certified. And I’m actually in my second round of certification, I was certified and then re-certified again. I’m in the midst of that right now.
