Eva E. Golabek
Eva E. Golabek joined Kralovec Jambois & Schwartz as an associate in 2011 to handle matters involving medical and nursing home negligence and personal injury across the state. She has dedicated her practice to serving those who have suffered significant injuries and the families who have lost a loved one, due to negligent care and treatment by medical providers. Her commitments to her clients, diligence, and drive have led to notable results on their behalf.

Additionally, Eva has worked on and settled a variety of personal injury matters, including slip and falls, and automobile accidents.
Her compassion extends beyond her place of employment, and she has served underprivileged communities by volunteering her time and providing pro bono legal services for Chicago Volunteer Legal Services and the Legal Aid Bureau.
