As a managing partner with Brown & Crouppen, Ed fights for what is right on behalf of clients and works hard to educate the public on their legal rights. He became a lawyer to pursue justice for everyday people, and today, he is proud to spend his career leveling the playing field against big insurance and drug companies.

After graduating from Washington University School of Law, Ed spent more than a decade handling cases for injured people. Since joining Brown & Crouppen, he has turned his attention to educating the public about their rights. Ed has appeared on “Great Day St. Louis,” “Show Me St. Louis,” and “KC Live” more than 500 times, offering guidance on common legal situations such as what to do when you are in an accident and the type of insurance coverage you need to protect yourself. Ed is also a regular presence on Emmy Award-Winning  BCTV, where he is a creator and host on the series “Ed Versus” and “3 Lawyers Eating Sandwiches,” as well as the voice of the Bad Idea Bandit on “Terry’s Safety Squad.”
