Malek & Malek History

Our History as an Ohio Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury Law Firm

Malek & Malek Law Firm is a family-owned Ohio workers’ compensation firm with deep roots in the Columbus area. Like our clients, we live, work, and raise our families here, hoping to make our community a better place. That’s why we focus our practice on representing people who have suffered severe injuries. We want to help them get back on their feet so that they can take care of their families and return to serving their communities. 

Serving the Columbus Area Since 1972

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. 

A Family-Owned Law Firm Helping Families

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. 

More Than Just an Ohio Workers’ Compensation Firm

Our lawyers do more than just represent the injured. We believe that community matters. In addition to providing pro bono representation to people who can’t afford a lawyer, our lawyers give hundreds of hours to various charities and other volunteer organizations in the Columbus area. Whether it is helping at a food pantry to helping someone navigate the workers’ compensation system free of charge, we believe we have an obligation to contribute outside of our daily professional lives.
