CHICAGO, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Begun in 1963 as a one-man law firm by Edward R. Vrdolyak upon his graduation from the University of Chicago Law School, the firm now boasts 13 lawyers, nearly 50 employees and three locations.
"We're proud of our longevity, especially as many law firms have consolidated or dissolved in recent years. We're also proud of our heritage, but don't rest on our laurels. We're constantly looking forward to building what our dad started by helping our current and future clients receive the most compensation for their injuries," said John Vrdolyak.
Edward R. Vrdolyak started the business, then named the Law Offices of Edward R. Vrdolyak Ltd. in 1963, the same year his oldest son and firm partner Peter Vrdolyak was born. "It means a lot to me that we have this business as our family heritage. Along with my brothers John and Eddie, we try never to lose sight of that family dynamic, and try to treat our employees and clients as family too," said Peter Vrdolyak.
Youngest brother Eddie Vrdolyak agrees. "We treat all our clients with the respect they deserve. We know that often times these clients are unable to work and their cases are the most important thing to them at the time. That motivates us to fight for our clients - to get them the best result in what can be difficult economic and medical situations. We're very committed to that goal."
Over their history the Vrdolyak Law Group has been successful in obtaining more than nine billion dollars for their clients, through legal and consulting work.
"That's a big number, with a lot of zeros," said John Vrdolyak, "but it doesn't tell the whole story. Our more impressive statistic is that more than two generations of people have been helped by our firm when they were injured at work, in a car, while walking, or in a hospital. These satisfied clients and their referrals of friends and family members from generation to generation are the reason why we're celebrating our 50th year."
Founding father Edward R. Vrdolyak shares the pride in his business and in his sons. "My sons have done a great job in taking what I left for them and bringing it to the next level. It's great to see them build upon that foundation of family values and helping those in need. Those virtues never go out of style, not even 50 years later."
The Vrdolyak Law Group – founded in 1963, has grown into a well-known law firm recognized as a premier personal injury, medical malpractice and workers' compensation law firm, with a team of attorneys experienced in a wide range of other practice areas. The firm has three locations in Chicagoland, and is managed by Attorneys Edward J. Vrdolyak, Jr., John K. Vrdolyak, and Peter T. Vrdolyak. http://www.vrdolyak.com
