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.

A Strong Track Record of Success
In his last five trials that went to verdict, there were no settlement offers by the defendant. Despite this fact, 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 results include:
- $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
- $2.5 million settlement in a trucking negligence case
He and his colleagues at McNabola & Associates have obtained almost $75 million in verdicts and settlements on behalf of injured clients. Ted has published extensively in trial practice and is a frequent speaker at legal education seminars. He has also contributed to the Illinois Institute of Continuing Legal Education (IICLE) legal textbook with his chapter on liens in medical malpractice cases — titled “Liens” and coauthored by Attorney Terry Nofsinger.
