New Jersey DWI Defense Attorney Certifications
Two of the most distinguished designations a New Jersey defense attorney can achieve are through the state Supreme Court and the National College for DUI Defense.
Municipal Trial Attorney
The New Jersey Supreme Court has sanctioned a relatively new certification: Municipal Court Trial Attorney. In order to achieve this honor, an attorney must have tried at least 10 municipal court cases since his or her admission to the New Jersey bar, six of which must be DWI cases. The attorney must also submit various references and pass a written test.
NCDD Board Certification
The National College for DUI Defense (NCDD) also has a board certification test. More difficult than New Jersey’s certification test, this exam covers highly technical and scientific matters that relate to DUI/DWI defense. In order to be board certified by the NCDD, an attorney must pass the exam and have completed 15 trials and filed 30 motions in a three-year period.
