In Association with

Edward R. Vrdolyak (Vrdolyak Law Group, Chicago lawyer and politician/Wikipedia). Started his own law firm after graduating from University of Chicago Law School in 1963. Longtime powerful city Chicago alderman (from 1971-1987), he was President of the City Council from 1977 until 1983, and head of the Cook County Democratic Party. Nicknamed 'Fast Eddie' for his ability to rapidly push programs through city council. The Vrkdolyak 29 was a group of 29 Chicago Alderman who regularly opposed Mayor Harold Washington. Vrdolyak ran as a Republican for mayor of Chicago in 1989, but lost to Richard M. Daley. Vrodolyak was a highly rated talk show host from 1993 to 1996 on WLS AM and WJJD AM. In 2004, Chicago NBC5's Carol Marin reported that lawyers, including Edward Vrdolyak, earned a bonanza defending the town of Cicero. In the 1990's, Edward Vrdolyak became a political confidant of Betty Loren-Maltese, who went to prison for defrauding taxpayers. From 1997, the Vrdolyak law firm billed Cicero taxpayers almost $6 million. In 2000, a political opponent of Betty Loren-Maltese was arrested with a DUI charge by Cicero Police officer Lorne Stenson, who later went to the FBI to report that his bosses in the Cicero Police Department coordinated Moreno's arrest. He was told by Ed Vrdolyak to cooperate or he would lose his job. He did not cooperate and he did lose his job. The DUI charge against Moreno was eventually dropped and Moreno received a settlement from the town of Cicero in 2004 to settle a civil rights lawsuit related to the politically-related, false arrest. In September 2005, the Chicago Tribune reported that Vrdolyak had agreed to a 30-day suspension of his law license for allegedly double billing clients he represented in sexual harassment cases. Most recently there are allegations that Vrdolyak was involved in ethics violations and conflict of interest, especially involving Sportsman's Park in Cicero, where he was lawyer for Cicero and business partner involving Sportsman's Park.
