Suggested shop/wheelbuilder for wheel truing/retensioning in central NJ?

Does anyone have any recommendations for a shop or wheelbuilder in the Central NJ area where I can have my wheels trued and retensioned? I noticed my rear wheel needs it and I might as well get both done. Bike has about 1500 miles on it now - I guess I'm lucky I've gone this long without it.

I don't just want to take it to the "local shop" as it sounds like finding someone good with wheels is more difficult (am I correct on this or is this something any shop can do)?

Turns out my back wheel is actually cracked - noticed a clicking when I went to ride yesterday and found the crack. So I am actually in the market for a new wheel (or wheels).

If anyone can recommend a shop in the area that would be great. Otherwise I guess I will go the mailorder wheelbuilder route.
