Why Choose a Certified Civil Trial Attorney?

Kevin P. McCann of Chance & McCann, L.L.C. is a Certified Civil Trial Attorney. 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. Attorneys may be designated by the Supreme Court as "certified attorneys" if they: are able to demonstrate sufficient 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 as having sufficient skills and reputation in the designated specialty.

The Supreme Court, through recommendation by the Board, currently certifies attorneys in four areas: civil trial law, criminal trial law, matrimonial law, and workers' compensation law.

An attorney must meet the following requirements to become certified:

  • • Has been a member in good standing of the New Jersey Bar for at least five years
  • • Has taken a specific number of continuing legal education courses in the three years prior to filing
    an application
  • • Demonstrates substantial involvement in preparation of litigated matters
  • • Demonstrates an unblemished reputation by submitting a list of attorneys and judges who will attest to the
    applicant's character and ability
  • • Passes a written examination covering various aspects of practice in the designated specialty
