Lawyer Legion created this list of the top picks in 2024 for the best employment law attorneys in New Jersey. To rank the top employment lawyers and other lawyers in New Jersey, we used both objective and subjective criteria.

The best employment law attorneys were selected based on their career accomplishments, success in high-profile cases, professional involvement, community leadership, and board certifications.

This list represents some of the most highly accomplished employment lawyers currently practicing in New Jersey. When reviewing this list, please be aware of each of the following:

  • Lawyers cannot pay to be included in this list.
  • Only lawyers who are active on Lawyer Legion were selected.
