Criminal Attorney Certified by the Supreme Court of NJFred Sisto is Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Criminal Trial Attorney. The Supreme Court is the only authority that can license New Jersey attorneys. The Supreme Court’s board certification as a criminal trial specialist is the only trustworthy proof that an attorney is among the best of the best.

Designations from other entities like “Super”, “Excellent”, “Pro”, “Premium”, “10.0” and attorney advertising claims should all be taken with a grain of salt. All of these designations can be bought by attorneys that have never contested a criminal case.

Criminal Trial Certification by the New Jersey Supreme Court is a designation earned by less than one half of one percent (less than 1 in 200) of all attorneys in New Jersey. It requires: handling at least ten jury trials to verdict; good standing as a licensed New Jersey attorney for at least five years; completion of numerous hours of accredited criminal trial education courses; an unblemished reputation amongst attorneys and judges who attest to the applicant’s character and ability; and passing a full-day intense examination covering various aspects of criminal trial practice.

In addition to inquiring if a criminal defense attorney is Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Criminal Trial Attorney, you should ask certified specialists whether they might have an uncertified associate handle any part of your case. Once retained, Fred Sisto guarantees that he will be the only attorney to handle your case. You should also check the following link to see if an attorney or their associate has a history of ethics violations. DRB – Disciplinary Review Board of the Supreme Court of New Jersey (

While most people prefer the certainty of a favorable plea deal or dismissal to the uncertainty of a criminal trial, having a Supreme Court certified criminal trial specialist is the best way to guarantee the best plea offer. Prosecutors know that the vast majority of “criminal defense attorneys” have no jury trial experience. In those cases, prosecutors can just dig in their heels and insist that you take the “deal” that they want. An attorney that is unwilling or unable to effectively defend you before a jury has no choice but to sell you on the “deal.” Fred Sisto is proud to be a Certified Criminal Trial Attorney, not a plea-peddler.
