Since 1997, Ed and his team have recovered many tens of millions of dollars for cleaning and restoration companies across the country, defending them in court,  drafting their contracts, and helping them develop practical risk management strategies. He has drafted many hundreds of customized contracts for insurance repairs, emergency mitigation, reconstruction, and contents restoration for many of the biggest names in the disaster recovery industry. Hundreds of companies sign many millions of dollars of contracts every week using his contracts, for everything from small carpet cleaning projects, to coronavirus disinfection, to major fire repairs. Ed received the Joe Laurino Memorial Award for Continuous and Unselfish Support of the Carpet & FabriCare Institute. Restorers ultimately nicknamed him “The Restoration Lawyer.”
