Ted McNabola

Founding Partner

Edward (Ted) McNabola was selected as one of the top 100 consumer attorneys in Illinois in a survey of Illinois attorneys conducted by Law & Politics magazine. For the past 15 years, Ted has been awarded an AV peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell which is its highest rating for ethical standard and legal ability. He has been selected by his peers as an Illinois Super Lawyer and a member of the Leading Lawyers Network.

He has successfully prosecuted hundreds of cases on behalf of victims of personal injury, trucking negligence, medical negligence, wrongful death and class actions. In his last five trials, there were no settlement offers by the defendant. Despite there being no settlement offers, Mr. McNabola won all five trials on behalf of his clients and achieved verdicts approaching $20 million. Mr. McNabola’s most recent trial resulted in a verdict of $7.5 million for the family of a man who died after a mistake during surgery. Other recent results include a $3.15 million settlement for a Chicago Police Officer who suffered an injury to his eye resulting in partial loss of vision, $3.7 million for the family of a young woman who died as a result of negligent medical care and $2.5 million settlement in a trucking negligence case

He and his colleagues at McNabola & Associates have obtained almost $100 million in verdicts and settlements on behalf of injured clients.

Mr. McNabola is a former Adjunct Professor at Northwestern University School of Law and Loyola University Chicago School of Law, where he taught Trial Advocacy. He was elected by his peers to the General Assembly of the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) and is an active member of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, the Chicago Bar Association and the American Association for Justice. He is a published author and frequent speaker on legal issues.

Mr. McNabola graduated with honors from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. He obtained his Juris Doctorate from Loyola University of Chicago School of Law and achieved a Masters Degree from Loyola University of Chicago, where he concentrated on jury selection and deliberation. He studied law in Innsbruck, Austria with the former Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, William H. Rehnquist. In 2008, Mr. McNabola received the honor of being admitted to the Bar of the United States Supreme Court and was sworn in by Chief Justice John H. Roberts.

Mr. McNabola currently serves on the Board of Directors for Loyola University Chicago School of Law and the Board of Directors for The 100 Club, a charity dedicated to helping families of policeman and fireman killed in the line of duty.
