His friendship, courtesy ,knowledge and honesty have become very important to me during the last three years as he represented me with medical malpractice.

T-Boned in a 4 day old car
Ed was very helpful. My daughter and I were T-boned at a light and Ed took care of everything. I did not have to worry about the bills or how I was going to pay my bills. He is exceptional in every aspect. Thank you for taking the time to explain things and keeping us updated on all the information we asked about.

Top Tier Attorney
In November of 2015, I was driving through an intersection when violently stuck by another vehicle. After being referred to Ed by a trusted family friend, who is also an attorney, I knew I was in good hands. This was reiterated after my initial meeting with Ed and his team. He made sure I was getting the appropriate medical treatments, gave me an idea of the process that we would be going through over the next few months, and then continuously followed up with me to provide updates, but also in regard to my treatments and well-being. Ed has my full confidence and I would not hesitate to work with him again.

Highly Recommend
Mr. Kruse and his staff were outstanding in handling my case. This was not a typical situation , yet, the result for me could not have been better. Mr. Kruse was up front on the possible outcomes that I was facing, and what he could do to alleviate my situation. He, and his office, displayed the upmost integrity and professionalism that I desired, kept me informed, and delivered the outcome I, we, desired. I recommend Mr. Kruse without hesitation and/or reservation.

Take Charge Lawyer
Mr. Kruse stepped in a took charge of my son's head injury case and let me know each step of the way how it was going. He understood that our son's accident was consuming our lives. We totally relied on Ed to handle everything from the expert testimonies to the gathering all the medical records. When it came time for the trial, Mr. Kruse handled the insurance company lawyers as well. I would recommend Ed to anyone that needs to go up against an insurance company. He fought hard for us.

I needed attorney when State Farm refused to pay!
I am an ex adjuster, so when my aunt fell down steps and broke her hip in her apartment, I thought I could handle the claim for her. Problem was, State Farm refused to pay anything even though the steps were not within code. I turned to Mr Kruse who quickly had an expert prove the steps were faulty and settled the claim for $30,000!

car accident case
Mr.Kruse did an amazing job with my car accident injury case. His knowledge and professionalism is unbeatable. He helped me negotiate my medical bills to make them more affordable and was able to get me a high dollar settlement quickly. Him and his office staff went above and beyond to make sure me and my family were taken care of. This attorney definitely knows what he is doing and gave his all on my case. I don't know what my family and I would have done if we didn't have Mr. Kruse in our corner!

Excellent Representation
Over the last 25 years I have needed Ed's representation and or advice several times. Any time I have needed either, Ed has been available, helpful and more than capable and the results of his actions have always provided positive results. I have referred Ed to freinds and co-workers over the years and they have always been happy and I will continue to do so.

Not only do I consider Mr. Kruse an excellent attorney , but he conducts his business as if you were talking to a friend.

Edward C. Kruse- top notch Personal Injury Attorney...
Mr. Edward Kruse is one of the most professional attorneys who I've ever come in contact with. His knowledge of the law and his ability to litigate as a trial lawyer are outstanding-second to none. I highly recommend Mr. Kruse as an attorney who is extremely knowledgable in case law and is also an excellent litigator as well. He strives hard to make his clients feel at ease in what can sometimes be very difficult circumstances. His clients will feel confident in him and his competence in having a very positive outcome in their case. I highly recommend Mr. Kruse as one of the most outstanding, caring, personal injury attorneys in both Missouri and Illinois.
