Congratulations to Partner Karl Friedrichs for his recent designation as a Certified Civil Trial Attorney

A certified civil trial attorney in the state of New Jersey has demonstrated satisfactory levels of experience, continuing legal education as well as sufficient knowledge and skill regarding civil trial law as confirmed by the New Jersey Supreme Court’s Board on Attorney Certification

Being certified by the Board on Attorney Certification means the individual is a good standing member of the New Jersey State Bar for at least 5 years, has been evaluated by judges and other attorneys familiar with their work and passed a written examination on an array of topics related to trial practice. 

According to njcourts.gov, “The Supreme Court, through recommendation by the Board, certifies attorneys in five areas: civil trial law, criminal trial law, matrimonial law, municipal court law, and workers’ compensation law.”

The New Jersey Courts pamphlet Why Should You Use A Certified Civil Trial Attorney states that, “as of December 2016, approximately 1,650 hold board certification out of roughly 75,000 active lawyers in New Jersey.” This designation and certification program helps consumers find experienced attorneys in specialized fields of law. 

Becoming a certified civil trial attorney isn’t just a title or honor based on extensive work done in their field of law, but and perhaps most importantly, the certification process serves as a guide to help consumers find specialized and experienced trial attorneys.

Locks Law Firm only provides legal advice after having entered into an attorney client relationship, which our website specifically does not create. Conversations that originate from website messaging, chat or other two way web based engagement  do not create an attorney client relationship. It is imperative that any action taken be done on the advice of counsel. Because every case is different, the description of awards and cases previously handled do not guarantee a similar outcome in current or future cases. The firm practices law in Pennsylvania, New Jersey & New York as Locks Law Firm. Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers in America and other organizations that rate attorneys are not designations that have been approved by the State Supreme Courts or the American Bar Association.
