Enriching Lives Through Advocacy
I have been handling worker's compensation cases in Alabama since 1992. I enjoy helping people navigate the complex process of obtaining necessary treatment as well as the compensation owed as a result of an on-the-job injury.
If you think you might have a case, but aren't sure, call me for a free consultation. I'll be happy to help you.
I handle other matters as well. In fact, I am dedicated to protecting the rights of people with disabilities. Most frequently, I help them obtain accessible parking, routes of travel, and restrooms in public places. In addition, I often help enforce their right to accessible housing. I generally provide these services without charge to my clients. Whether you encounter barriers to access at work, in your apartment, at a stadium or theater, at the mall, in the hospital or almost anywhere else, I can help remove them.
I am also a full service law firm. I handle a variety of legal matters from social security disability to personal injury, workers' compensation and overtime cases under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

I am passionate about helping people with disabilities. Whether your disability is due to an on-the-job injury, or car or truck accident, a slip and fall, or otherwise, I would be happy to help. In addition to helping obtain workers' compensation and social security disability benefits, I also enjoy enforcing your civil right to equal access to public accommodations, employment, housing, education and transportation.
I have been handling workers' compensation cases and social security disability cases since 1992. In 2002, I began primarily handling federal civil rights matters, under the Americans with Disabilities Act, Rehabilitation Act and Fair Housing Act, for people with disabilities across the country; primarily in Alabama, Arkansas, District of Columbia, Florida, Kentucky, Ohio, Oklahoma, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.
I am AV rated by Martindale Hubble and have been nominated to Alabama SuperLawyers on multiple occasions for my work in both Workers' Compensation and Civil Rights matters.
Ed is the managing member of the Law Office of Edward I. Zwilling, LLC. He is rated AV Preeminent by Martindale Hubbell and has been nominated to SuperLawyers on multiple occasions.
Ed went to college at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia and attended Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama. He has been practicing law for approximately 27 years. Ed has spent the last 17 years largely engaged in the representation of people with disabilities. He helps those individuals enforce their civil rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act, Rehabilitation Act, Fair Housing Amendments Act, and various state and federal civil rights laws against discrimination on the basis of disability.
As there are relatively few attorneys who practice primarily in this area, Ed has been asked to represent people with disabilities across the country. He is admitted to practice in the State of Alabama as well as numerous federal district courts in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, Tennessee, Texas, and Wisconsin and has handled cases in numerous other states.
