Myroslaw Smorodsky
was born in Austria in 1944 and emigrated to the United States at the age of six. Most of his childhood years were spent in Passaic, New Jersey. Upon graduation from high school, Myroslaw Smorodsky entered Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey and majored in history on a scholastic scholarship. Myroslaw entered Rutgers Law School in his junior year of college, received his Juris Doctor degree in 1968, and was admitted to the New Jersey State and Federal bars the same year.

Myroslaw's first employment as an associate was with the prestigious firm of Stryker, Tams & Dill, Newark, New Jersey, where he concentrated in the area of general corporate litigation, including unfair competition, and trade secret infringement. Desiring to obtain extensive trial experience, Myroslaw transferred to the Public Defender's Office in 1970 and conducted to completion countless felony criminal jury trials, many of which were homicides.

In 1974, Myroslaw returned to the civil practice and joined the Rutherford, New Jersey, firm of Smith, Clayton & DeLucia (later known as Smith-Ely et al). From 1986 to 2001, he was the senior partner of the law firm Smorodsky & Stawnychy, PA.

During his career, Myroslaw's legal experience has been exceptionally wide ranging. His initial practice entailed the representation of clients in various matters including criminal, tort, negligence, personal injury, real estate, land planning, matrimonial, as well as general equity litigation. Since the 90’s, his practice has evolved into one with a clearly international flavor with special emphasis on Ukraine. Reflecting this progression, Myroslaw has now limited his practice to matters of an international character or are of special interest and significance.
