About Us

Columbus, Ohio Workers Comp & Personal Injury Attorney

The Law Offices of Malek & Malek have been serving Columbus, Ohio, and the surrounding communities since 1972. Attorney Ed Malek founded the Malek Law Firm as a general litigation practice, providing legal representation in a variety of areas. In 1995, his eldest son, James Malek, joined the practice, and the firm narrowed its focus, concentrating exclusively on protecting the rights of accident victims, injured parties and their families.

The firm has grown since its early days. Founding Attorney Ed Malek now practices in good company with three of his sons, James Doug, and Kip Malek, all licensed attorneys. The Malek & Malek Law Firm now has five practicing attorneys who work tirelessly in developing long-lasting relationships with employees and families of Columbus, Ohio. Combined, these five attorneys bring over sixty years of experience to the court room.

Generations of Legal Help 

Attorney Ed Malek graduated from law school in 1969. After briefly working for the probate court and as an assistant prosecutor for Franklin County, he started his own firm in 1972; a general litigation practice that handled a broad spectrum of cases. For over 20 years, Ed has helped people and businesses resolve their legal issues and get cost-effective results. Ed’s work as a probate attorney, an assistant prosecutor, and a general practice litigator has given him a wealth of experience that most other attorneys do not have. He brings deep expertise and a unique experience to every case we handle. 

Ed decided to focus his practice on personal injury cases when his son James Malek joined the firm in 1995. James has over 20 years of experience as a licensed attorney and has handled numerous jury trials in workers’ compensation and personal injury cases. 

Ed was then joined by his son Doug in 2007 and finally his son Kip in 2014. Both Doug and Kip earned CALI awards while in law school to recognize their excellent performance in workers’ compensation courses. Doug focuses almost exclusively on workers’ compensation cases and has been nominated by the National Trial Lawyers as a Top 40 Under 40 Trial Attorneys. Together, Ed, James, Doug, and Kip help people in Columbus and the surrounding areas get back on their feet after suffering a severe injury. 

Whether you have been injured at work or in a car accident, we understand the challenges you face. We can help you get the compensation you need to replace your income, pay your bills, and take care of your family. 

James Malek, Preeminent Ohio Dog Bite Attorney

James Malek has proven over and over again his ability to recover substantial compensation and payment of medical bills for victims of a dog bite or dog attack. Often these cases require a deep dive into how this type of injury affects the dog bite victim both on a physical and an emotional level. James developed a very effective process by which he is able to communicate this physical and emotional injury to juries and insurance companies.
