The majority of us have been sheltering in place for months. We have endured unprecedented stress and perhaps, even loss. As our state begins to reopen, we emerge from quarantine uncertain of whatâ€™s to come and saddled with concerns. With increased travel and mobility comes increased risk for injury. Further complicating this threat is our â€œnew normalâ€ where medical treatment, insurance claims and court proceedings are now far more complicated to navigate. This causes fear, doubt and frustration for those who are suffering and in need of answers.
Now, more than ever, we must rely on our experienced professionals to guide us through these unfamiliar times, while keeping succinct pace with constantly developing changes to our laws and procedures in personal injury cases.

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.
