NJ Supreme Court Recognizes Certified Matrimonial Law Attorney

Finding a matrimonial law attorney in New Jersey can be a confusing and overwhelming process. But it doesn't have to be.

We understand and take pride in the ability to handle complex and difficult matters for all of our clients by combining a strong knowledge of family law with a devoted work ethic.

Certified Matrimonial Law Attorney Credentials

To help demystify this important decision-making process, the State of New Jersey has implemented a certification program aimed at recognizing its most talented and competent matrimonial law attorneys. Those lawyers who demonstrate considerable expertise in the specialized field of family and matrimonial law are awarded the title of ‘Certified Matrimonial Law Attorney' by the Supreme Court of New Jersey.
This credential is more than just legalese; it is achieved by meeting established and tough standards and criteria. These include undergoing comprehensive and rigorous testing, demonstrating extensive matrimonial trial experience and proficiency, as well as fulfilling ongoing continuing legal education requirements. Certified attorneys must also achieve their status by way of a recommendation from fellow colleagues and New Jersey Superior Court judges, together with having been a member in good standing of the New Jersey Bar for at least five years.
The distinction of hiring a certified matrimonial attorney allows clients to be confident that they are in the hands of a professional who has been recognized for his or her superior knowledge and skill in a diverse array of practice areas.

Are All Divorce Lawyers Automatically Certified Matrimonial Law Attorneys?

The short answer to this is ‘no'.
