Ed Bertram joined Baron & Budd’s Dallas office in 2018 as part of the Pharmaceutical Litigation Group. Mr. Bertram is a proud New Jersey native who moved to Texas before high school. He attended Texas Tech University where he earned a Bachelor’s in Political Science with a minor in Spanish in 2007.
Mr. Bertram built a successful career in commercial real estate during the height of the Great Recession. However, a call to practice law was strong, as his passion has always been to fight for people, not corporations. Ed Bertram moved to Georgia to attend Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law due to its proud tradition and focus on public service.
In law school Mr. Bertram fell in love with Constitutional Law which further solidified his passion to fight for the underdog. Ed Bertram competed his way onto Mercer’s Mock Trial Team and represented his school in the top national competitions. While in law school, Mr. Bertram also worked as a law clerk for a trial practice specializing in fighting insurance companies in personal injury and wrongful death cases, as well as workers compensation cases, taking on corporate employers who attempted to deny just compensation to employees who sustained injuries on the job. Ed Bertram finished near the top of his class in 2014, graduating cum laude.
Mr. Bertram returned to the Dallas area, where he established a solo practice representing people in personal injury cases. Mr. Bertram was thrilled to join Baron & Budd and eager to add to the ranks of a plaintiffs’ firm willing to take on any corporate interest, no matter how powerful. “I value loyalty and respect and, unfortunately, corporate greed consistently undermines those values. Baron & Budd’s outstanding reputation makes me proud to help fight for what’s right.”
Standing up for those who need it most and honoring the memories of his father and brother are the qualities which drive Ed Bertram to aggressively represent our clients. Mr. Bertram’s meticulous eye for detail, his tireless work ethic and a diverse life experience enrich every task he undertakes. In his free time, Mr. Bertram enjoys spending time with his family, good beer, and watching Texas Tech football – “Wreck ‘em!”
