Lawyers who have achieved this designation are permitted to have their names appear on a roster of approved mediators that is utilized by the courts in each county in New Jersey. This roster of mediators is utilized by the divorce lawyers and the family law Judges in selecting mediators to resolve ongoing divorce cases.
