Chicago’s Personal Injury Attorney

Edward S. Rueda is a lawyer like no-other. A passion for justice for his clients, who are needlessly injured due to the carelessness of others, defines his approach to representation of his clients. Having a passion for justice is what clients need when they face an aggressive defense that prefers to place the injured client on trial rather than the careless at-fault defendant! Edward believes in keeping the focus of his client’s case exactly where it should be: on the careless behavior of the at-fault defendant. The clients who needlessly suffer an injury should never feel they are the “bad-guys”. Yet, too often, this is the reality when an injured person seeks compensation for their loss. Edward believes that true justice can only be realized when the human story behind the injury is told. The injury victim, who in many instances has suffered a serious and catastrophic loss, has a story to tell and this story deserves to be told, and must be told, in order to achieve the fullest compensation for their injuries and change in life. Edward was born and raised in raised in Chicago and his entire career has been spent in private practice concentrating on servicing the people in his very own community. Your matter is in good experienced hands as Edward has prevailed and achieved a “no-loss” record in each case that has reached final disposition whether at trial or at the appellate level. This record speaks volumes with regard to Edward’s passion for justice in the representation of the injured.
