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 results to Bergen Magazine for its final review.
Bergen Magazine voted Janell Weinstein Bergen County’s Top Lawyers 2019 and 2017. Bergen County is home to some of the most prominent and sought-after attorneys in the country. Bergen Magazine contracted DataJoe Research of Boulder, Colorado to facilitate an online peer-vote process and created 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.
