About Gregg Tabakin

Gregg Tabakin is a Certified Civil Trial Attorney in NJ who has been with FSKS for 26 years. Mr. Tabakin’s practice focuses on Commercial Litigation for both Plaintiffs and Defendants, Employment Law relating to wrongful termination and discrimination, Accountant Malpractice, Real Estate Matters, and General Contractual Disputes. He currently leads FSKS’s class action defense team, defending financial institutions and other companies in various consumer protection class actions.

About Brian Kincaid

Brian Kincaid is a Certified Civil Trial Attorney in NJ who has been practicing law at FSKS for over 29 years. Mr. Kincaid specializes in Family Law Litigation, Personal Injury cases from settlement to trial, and Municipal Court cases surrounding local ordinance violations and DWIs.

Mr. Kincaid is a Certified Family Law Mediator specializing in divorce cases, typically involving custody issues and visitation. To become a Certified Family Law Mediator, you must complete extensive mediator training and take continuing education courses to maintain your certification. Mr. Kincaid strongly believes that parties who choose mediation are at a “good point” in their case because, at the end of the day, litigation is costly, and mediation helps parties arrive at common-sense solutions. The mediation process is not binding unless the parties sign an agreement at the end.

How to Become a Certified Civil Trial Attorney in NJ

The New Jersey Supreme Court Board on Trial Attorney Certification grants certification to attorneys who meet specific requirements set forth by the Board. In order to become certified in a particular area of law, such as Civil Trial Law, Criminal Trial Law, Matrimonial Law, Municipal Court Law, or Workers’ Compensation Law, an attorney must have:

  • Been a member in good standing of the NJ bar for over 5 years
  • Fulfilled ongoing continuing legal education requirements
  • Demonstrated a substantial level of experience in preparation of litigated matters
  • Been favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with his or her character and ability
  • Taken and passed a written examination covering various aspects of practice in the designated specialty
  • Accumulated at least 60 CLE credits

Each area of expertise requires its own separate application and examination. Every five years, you must be recertified. For Brian and Gregg, this is their third time being recertified in the State of New Jersey, where only 2% of attorneys are Certified Civil Trial Attorneys. According to New Jersey Courts, as of December 2016, only 1,650 attorneys held Board certification out of 75,000 active lawyers within the state.

FSKS’ Referral Service Program

At FSKS, our Referral Service Program, in accordance with the law, invites referrals from both in and out-of-state attorneys and clients. Mr. Tabakin and Mr. Kincaid can pay a referral fee or divide a fee with the referring attorney without regard to services performed or anticipated. The referring attorney does not have to work on the case nor be a Certified Trial Attorney.
