A gifted personal injury lawyer, Ed excels in understanding the facts and law concerning how a client was injured, and in developing a legal strategy to win just compensation. He is passionate about representing injured people who are at a low point in their lives and need legal help. A lawyer since 1992, Ed has won numerous verdicts and favorable settlements for his clients. In the past fifteen years, he has recovered over $100 million dollars. He has represented clients in the Illinois Supreme Court, the Illinois Appellate Court, Illinois state courts and federal courts throughout the country.

Ed has been selected as an Illinois "Super Lawyer" for 2006, 2007, 2009- 2018. Considered among the best in their profession, Super Lawyers represent the top 5% of the practicing attorneys in Illinois.

Over the past several years, Ed has dedicated himself to several environmental class action and toxic tort cases, fighting for the innocent victims of groundwater, air and soil contamination. The results of these legal battles have been outstanding and include recovery of over $72 million in damages for victims of environmental pollution and the development of new legal precedent making it easier for innocent families to seek relief as a class of citizens. Ed is most proud of the fact that through the Firm's efforts, over 16,000 people have been provided with a safe source of drinking water. Ed's extensive work in environmental litigation has led him to be named as an expert witness in environmental litigation matters.

Ed is a member of the American Association for Justice, the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association and the Illinois, Chicago, and DuPage County Bar Associations. He has been a volunteer advocate for the Illinois Pro Bono Center, helping disabled children maintain their governmental benefits.
