The Board on Attorney Certification was established by the Supreme Court of New Jersey in 1980 for the purpose of helping consumers find attorneys who have a recognized level of competence in particular fields of law.
Roger Thomas is the only Certified Workers Compensation Attorney and Robert Morgenstern is one of only three Certified Civil Trial Attorneys practicing in a Sussex County firm.
A certified attorney is more than just an attorney who specializes in a particular area of law. Attorneys may be designated by the Supreme Court as “certified attorneys” only if they: are able to demonstrate high levels of experience, education, knowledge and skill in a specific area of law or practice; have passed a rigorous examination; and have been recognized by their peers and judges as having sufficient skills and reputation in the designated specialty. Currently, there are five certified specialties: civil trial law, criminal trial law, matrimonial trial law, municipal court law, and workers’ compensation law.
