For three decades Ed Broderick has been a pillar of the legal community, both in New Jersey and Morris County, where his practice is based. With a long record of leadership in the law and in his community, and refined in judgment and demeanor, Broderick possesses the qualities of many of the distinguished judges he appears before. Broderick's record dates back to Delbarton Preparatory School, in Morristown, where his education began. (He later served as a Delbarton trustee for 28 years.) He went to Notre Dame, where he received his undergraduate and law degrees. He spent four years in the Air Force, until 1960, where he practiced law in the military's Judge Advocate General (JAG); later, while in private practice, he served in the Air Force Reserve for 26 years, achieving the rank of colonel. He received the Air Force's Commendation Medal in 1985 and the Meritorious Service Medal in 1987. In 1977 he co-founded Broderick, Newmark & Grather; Broderick's partners have long handled commercial-law work for a major regional real estate firm, and Broderick has worked in all aspects of employment and commercial law.
The father of four and grandfather of nine, Broderick and his wife live in New Vernon, New Jersey, not far from his office in downtown Morristown.
