About me

Mark Sadaka founded the Law Offices of Sadaka Associates in 2008. His educational background and legal expertise in complex litigation, from consumer protection, medical device and pharmaceutical litigation to product liability and toxic tort, has made Mr. Sadaka a nationally recognized trial lawyer and trusted counsel for nearly a decade. Most recently, he was selected by New Jersey Super Lawyers & Rising Stars to the "2013 Rising Stars List". This was Mr. Sadaka's second Rising Star selection. In 2011 the New York Metro Super Lawyers & Rising Stars selected him to the “2011 Rising Stars List.” The National Trial Lawyers asked him to join their 2012 and 2013 “Top 40 Under 40” list of the top 40 trial lawyers under the age of 40 in New York State. 

Mr. Sadaka is well known for his advocacy of socially important litigation and is frequently interviewed by national newspapers for his expertise in medical devices and drug safety. He has also contributed articles to TRIAL magazine and the New York State Trial Lawyers Association’s Bill of Particulars as well as the American Association of Justice.

He earned a law degree from Washington University in St. Louis, and also holds a master’s degree in public health from Tulane University in New Orleans, La., as well as a bachelor’s degree from Pennsylvania State University in University Park, Pa.
