Edelson PC Makes $345,000 Donation to Illinois Bar Foundation

National consumer rights firm Edelson PC, headquartered in Chicago, announced it has made a $345,000 donation to the Illinois Bar Foundation. 

Jay Edelson, the founder of the firm, said the donation is part of his firm's broader efforts to support local and national organizations that promote open access to the courts.  “It has become more difficult for ordinary people to have full and fair access to the courts; this imbalance especially impacts disadvantaged communities. Legal aid organizations, like the IBF, are of critical importance in keeping the playing field as level as possible,” Edelson explained.

“The IBF is extremely grateful to Jay and his firm for this remarkable gift which will allow us to make even greater investments across the state to enhance access to justice,” explained Shawn S. Kasserman, a founding member of the personal injury law firm of Tomasik Kotin Kasserman, LLC in Chicago, who is president of the Illinois Bar Foundation.
