Results And Respect
Our experienced legal advocacy and our commitment to our clients have not gone unnoticed. In 2011, South Jersey Magazine named Scott J. Levine an Awesome Attorney. The New Jersey Supreme Court has designated Mr. Levine as a certified matrimonial law attorney.* Perhaps most important, however, is that a substantial potion of our new clients are referrals from satisfied past clients.
*Certified matrimonial law attorney is a designation granted by the New Jersey Supreme Court to attorneys who are able to demonstrate sufficient levels of experience, education, knowledge and skill in matrimonial law practice. The Supreme Court, through its Board on Attorney Certification, designates only those lawyers who apply for certification and who are able to meet the standards set by the board and approved by the court.
A certified attorney is more than just an attorney who specializes in a particular area of law. A New Jersey attorney who is certified by the Supreme Court as a matrimonial law attorney must have: been a member in good standing of the New Jersey State Bar Association for over five years; fulfilled ongoing continuing legal education requirements; demonstrated a substantial level of experience in matrimonial law; been favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with his or her work; taken and passed a written examination in matrimonial law.
