Top Lawyers 2017

The best attorneys in Bergen County.



Bergen County is home to some of the most prominent and sought-after attorneys in the country. To help you find some of the best, across more than 40 specialties, BERGEN magazine contracted DataJoe Research of Boulder, Colorado to facilitate an online peer-vote process and create a Top Bergen County Lawyer list. Attorneys throughout the county were asked to select peers whom they deem are the best within their practice areas and whom they would seek out for particular legal needs.

DataJoe checked and confirmed that each published top vote getter had, at the time of review, a current, active license status with the State of New Jersey regulatory board. If they were not able to find evidence of a lawyer’s current, active registration, he or she was excluded from the list. In addition, any lawyer who has been disciplined for an infraction by the State of New Jersey regulatory board was excluded from the list. Finally, DataJoe presented the tallied result to BERGEN magazine for its final review.

We recognize that there are many good attorneys who are not shown in this representative list. This is only a sampling of the huge array of talented professionals within Bergen County.
