Adam Rothenberg, partner at the New Jersey law firm of Levinson Axelrod P.A., has been appointed chair of the Civil Certification Committee for the New Jersey Supreme Court Board on Attorney Certification, according to a Wednesday announcement.
Rothenberg was formally appointed as chairperson for the committee by Supreme Court of New Jersey Chief Justice Stuart Rabner in October. He will serve in that post through 2022 while also continuing to serve as a member of the board.
The board on attorney certification is responsible for administering the court’s attorney certification program, which designates lawyers statewide as “certified attorneys” if they demonstrate sufficient levels of experience, education, knowledge and skill in a one of five areas of law.
As a chairperson for the board, Rothenberg will lead the civil certification committee in vetting applicants seeking certification as a Civil Trial Specialist, a distinction Rothenberg himself has held for over 15 years. Rothenberg and the committee will also create and grade exams administered by the board as part of the certification process and will ultimately determine which attorneys become certified.
Rothenberg is a New Jersey Supreme Court-certified Civil Trial Specialist with years of experience representing clients in matters of medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, product liability and serious personal injury. As a partner at Levinson Axelrod, Rothenberg has helped the firm recover millions in compensation for victims and families.
