Linda Zuba is a Master's prepared Registered Nurse as well as a practicing attorney concentrating in personal injury, health care law, and public interest law where she advocates for people's civil rights.

Linda helps individuals who have suffered a serious injury through the negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct of another person.  Personal injury claims can be overwhelming and highly complex without the assistance of an attorney.  Linda helps clients through this complex task and she brings to each personal injury case her expertise as an attorney and her sensitivity as a registered nurse. Through her vigorous representation Linda significantly improves a client's chance of getting adequately compensated for the injury suffered.

For over 15 years Linda practiced as a health care professional in the areas of critical care and  flight nursing.  Linda was a certified critical care nurse, trauma nurse specialist, nursing instructor at Saint Anthony School of Nursing, and an instructor at Northern Illinois University School of Nursing.  Linda was also a certified instructor for Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support.  Linda spent many years lecturing on topics that would improve the health care for critical patients.  Linda has found her background in health care to be particularly helpful when assisting clients in matters related to health care and patient's legal rights.  Linda took pride in being a patient advocate and providing highly competent and compassionate care to patients.  Now as an attorney Linda takes pride in being a legal advocate who provides close personal services to each client and expert compassionate advice and representation to clients.

Linda believes in giving back to her community and as a result she is actively involved on community boards and committees aimed at improving the lives and health care for individuals and families in the Rockford area.
