About this firm

Smith Sovik is a medium-sized law firm founded in 1948 by two like-minded classmates from Syracuse University School of Law, Laurence "Larry" Sovik and John Timothy Smith. After graduating law school and reaching the level of partner at another Syracuse firm, Smith, Sovik and a third attorney and SU Law professor, Victor Levine, formed what is now the Smith Sovik Law Firm in 1946. While it began as a general practice law firm (as were all firms during those years), it developed over time into a firm primarily focused on litigation and trial practice and along the way became one of the premier litigation firms in New York State with a well earned reputation for the most effective, intelligent, hard-nosed and successful trial attorneys in the area. In fact, several of the lawyers of Smith Sovik have been regularly recognized by their peers and have been identified as among the nation's "Best Lawyers" and "Super Lawyers" in their fields of practice.

Smith Sovik maintains its center of operations in the middle of the state here in Syracuse, New York, but its attorneys litigate in all the State and Federal courts and enjoy a reputation as leaders in their fields of trial practice throughout the state. Our downstate office, located in East Meadow, services Long Island, New York City and the counties in the southern New York State. Western New York is serviced by our Buffalo office.

The Firm's areas of litigation practice include medical and professional liability, products liability, automobile, trucking, vehicle and aircraft liability, construction litigation, municipal law, commercial law, labor and employment practices law, environmental and toxic tort liability, general negligence and premises liability and workers' compensation law, as well as appellate advocacy in all of those areas.
