  • New Jersey Supreme Court

    The Board on Attorney Certification was established by the Supreme Court of New Jersey in 1980 for the purpose of helping consumers find attorneys who have a recognized level of competence in particular fields of law. Attorneys may be designated by the Supreme Court as "certified attorneys" if they: are able to demonstrate sufficient levels of experience, education, knowledge and skill in a specific area of law or practice; have passed a rigorous examination; and have been recognized by their peers as having sufficient skills and reputation in the designated specialty.

    The Supreme Court, through recommendation by the Board, currently certifies attorneys in four areas: civil trial law, criminal trial law, matrimonial law, and workers' compensation law.

    An attorney must meet the following requirements to become certified:

    • has been a member in good standing of the New Jersey Bar for at least five years;
    • has taken a specific number of continuing legal education courses in the three years prior to filing an application;
    • demonstrates substantial involvement in preparation of litigated matters;
    • demonstrates an unblemished reputation by submitting a list of attorneys and judges who will attest to the applicant's character and ability;
    • Passes a written examination covering various aspects of practice in the designated specialty.

  • Association Of Distinguished Counsel

    Association of Distinguished Counsel: The National Association of Distinguished Counsel employs an objective, rigorous, multi-stage selection process. The result is the identification of the finest lawyers in the country, named "Nation's Top Attorneys."

    Stage One: Candidates are identified either by nomination or an in house research team. Nominations are accepted from members of NADC, fellow attorneys, and current or former clients.

    Stage Two: Once prospective candidates are identified, a lengthy vetting process is employed by NADC researchers. The information considered in this review process is sourced from publicly available information, including attorneys’ websites, public profiles, client reviews, and case results. Specifically, the research team evaluates factors which include, but are not limited to the following: firm profile and reputation, years of practice, education, training, trial experience, case outcomes, peer endorsements, client reviews, professional awards, professional memberships, leadership in legal organizations, community involvement, disciplinary status, and other noteworthy achievements. Multiple factors are considered by the NADC research team in evaluating its potential members.

    Stage Three: A blue ribbon panel of attorneys studies the results provided by the NADC research team. These attorneys, having achieved podium status in their own right by multiple independent organizations, separate and apart from the NADC, are specially positioned with the perspective and knowledge in selecting “Nation’s Top Attorneys.” While considering the information presented to them, they make careful determinations as to who among their peers possesses the background, accomplishments, and prowess to serve as an example to other attorneys. The result is a list of attorneys who are considered truly elite.

    Stage Four: A judicial review board, led by a group of former judges, weighs in on the final candidates. The purpose of this phase is to ensure that those who are named “Nation’s Top Attorneys” have epitomized the ideals of the legal profession. They finalize the process of selecting the attorneys whose stellar reputation and exceptional performance exemplify only the highest standards. Those invited as members of the NADC must exhibit qualities becoming of an Officer of the Court, and have also demonstrated admirable character and virtue in the course of their practice of law.

  • New Jersey Law Journal Personal Injury Hall of Fame

    The second highest automobile negligence award in 2013 was recovered by John Vlasac Jr. and Boris Shmaruk of Vlasac & Shmaruk in Metuchen: $4.35 million in an Essex County suit over claimed neck and back injuries in a New Jersey Turnpike crash.

    Vanessa Naranjo alleged she was driving north in Newark on Jan. 14, 2011, when her car was struck in the rear by a car driven by Daniel Colon and owned by his employer, Sanofi-Aventis US of Bridgewater.

    According to the plaintiffs’ evidence, Naranjo suffered neck and back injuries and required cervical and lumbar fusion surgery, and her passenger, Jonathan Bish, suffered neck and back injuries and underwent lumbar fusion surgery. Naranjo, 33, a call center employee, and Bish, 41, a bouncer at a bar, could not work after the accident, they alleged.

    The plaintiffs sued Sanofi-Aventis US and Colon. Sanofi agreed to pay, on behalf of Colon and itself, $3.6 million to Naranjo and $750,000 to Bish.

    The parties settled June 10 after mediation with former Superior Court Judge Donald Goldman, with Starr, Gern, Davison & Rubin in Roseland.

    Joseph Manning, of Marshall, Dennehey, Warner, Coleman & Goggin in Roseland, represented Sanofi and Colon.

    About 4 months ago my wife got a job that came with housing. After going over all details and making plans for about 4 months prior to moving with management we packed up our whole lives, our pets, dropped some side jobs we had, and moved … More to the property where the job was located. After a few weeks things started getting very strange with management and "team" and after 2 full months everything that was planned in detail prior to moving to this property fell apart. After trying to discuss in person with management and then trying to discuss through email with management my wife was fired and we were given 5 days to pack up and leave the property. We had to start our lives over again. We immediately contacted Vlasac & Shmaruk LLC and worked with Ryan Getz & David Cassidy who are absolutely incredible at what they do! They were able to help us get off the property in a reasonable way and receive a settlement for all trouble caused by this "business". This was an incredibly stressful and scary situation but David and Ryan stayed in contact with us, were extremely patient, professional, soothing and just overly fantastic. If you are having any type of issue with an employement situation and being treated unfairly I highly recommend working with Ryan & David! I am so thankful they were able to take our case and help us through that mess. This was our first time having to hire legal help and I am just so grateful we found David and Ryan. In the future should we need any additional legal help we will absolutely be contacting them again. Thank you both so much!

    My wife and I were involved in a motor vehicle accident. Vlasac and Shmaruk took care of everything. They walked us through the process and took care of all the paperwork. They reached a settlement and we were happy. Glad to put that … More behind us and glad we used Vlasac and Shmaruk to help us get the money we needed for a new car and to get our medical bills paid. Thanks for everything you did!!!!
