Ed Fox & Associates are dedicated to helping people regain their dignity, achieve justice & obtain compensation.

Ready to File, Filing to Win: Ed Fox & Associates is a successful and dynamic law firm in Chicago focusing on cases involving nursing home abuse and negligence, police misconduct, civil rights violations and employment discrimination in Illinois and other states.

The firm is selective in the number of cases it handles, believing that each client deserves the full attention of a team of committed attorneys and staff members. Ed Fox & Associates devotes 100% of its practice to litigation.

Protecting Clients Rights and Helping Them Regain Their Dignity: When people in positions of authority abuse their trust, they must be held accountable. Ed Fox & Associates works to achieve justice and protect its clients' rights. The firm puts defendants on notice that abuses of trust cannot be tolerated, and by taking action, Ed Fox & Associates enables clients to tell their story and regain their dignity.

The firm has many notable successes in cases involving nursing home neglect, police brutality, employment discrimination, and civil rights violations.

A Team of Committed Advocates: Ed Fox & Associates takes a team approach in its cases. With five lawyers, supporting staff, and drawing upon outside expertise, the firm is committed to achieving success. The firm approaches each case with the expectation that it will go all the way through trial. Accordingly, the team painstakingly researches each case and prepares for the courtroom. This careful preparation often enables the team to negotiate a settlement from a position of strength, while still allowing the team to mount a strong litigation effort, if necessary.

Whether the case involves nursing home abuse, police brutality, or wrongful termination, the firm's goal in every case is to achieve justice, right the wrongs that have been done, and maximize the compensation the client receives.

Ed has extensive trial experience in both state and federal court, winning his very first trial in 1987 on behalf of an African-American man (Tyrone Merritt) who was physically abused and wrongly accused of stealing his car, and much more recently, going to trial in a nursing home abuse case on behalf of the great aunt of the reporter Rene Ferguson, and settling the case after 8 days of trial for nearly 1 million dollars. The great aunt, Hattie Brown, was 100 years old and had passed away before the trial began. Most recently, in June and July, 2011, Ed won one jury verdict that exceeded $150,000,00, including attorney's fees, for the false arrest and malicious prosecution on behalf of a man (jack Hale) who was wrongfully arrested for allegedly threatening to blow up officers with explosives, a month later, Ed won a jury verdict that, including attorney's fees, exceeds $230,000 for a ComEd worker who was falsely arrested because she was alleged to have been suspiciously taking photos of people's homes.

Ed has recently, within the past 12 months, settled nursing home cases for amounts exceeding 2 million dollars for the assault of his clients, a broken hip and dehydration.

Ed has also recently, in July 2001, settled a case against the Veteran's Administration for over $500,000,00 for sex harassment and retaliation for complaining about it.

Although not his largest case, Ed is most proud of a trial he won on behalf of a mentally challenged man who was fired from his job as an exterminator because he could not read and write. Ed was able to prove to the jury that this termination was a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Ed's trial experience includes many trials in police brutality, employment discrimination and nursing home abuse cases. He limits himself to these three areas of law in order to develop and maintain the expertise needed to be successful.

Not only does Ed have the extensive trial experience noted above, but also, he has conducted seminars and spoken on various legal issues related to the areas of law that he practices. In the year 2000, Ed testified before the United States Congress on issues of racial profiling. More recently, Ed was consulted by members of the media in connection with a nursing home case where a young profoundly disabled woman was raped, who became pregnant and delivered her disabled baby because of the negligence of the nursing home. Ed has always been an outspoken champion of those whose rights have been violated.

Ed's work philosophy is to litigate his cases aggressively, communicate with his clients to provide what they want and come to an understanding of what is reasonable, and to undertake whatever time and expense is necessary in order to do the best job possible. That is not only Ed's philosophy but also the philosophy of his firm.
