About our Syracuse, NY: office

Smith Sovik is a medium-sized law firm founded in 1946 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 that reputation throughout New York State. Our center of operations is still in Syracuse, but our attorneys try cases in all the State and Federal courts. Our downstate office in East Meadow services Long Island and New York City and our new office in White Plains serves New York City and the counties in southeastern New York State and the Hudson Valley area. Our Buffalo office handles cases in Rochester and Western New York. Just like our founders, today Smith Sovik handles almost all types of litigation all over the Empire State and attacks every case with a winning mindset.

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.
