Mary Okeiyi Ekpu, Esq.

Attorney Ekpu developed a passion for justice and equality at a young age, as a daughter of professors who believed in championing for equal education standards. In nursing practice, Ekpu began to observe the disparities that existed between the knowledge African Americans and people of color had about their health and the care and treatment they received in acute care settings. In 2013, she was awarded the DISCOVER© Global Women’s Initiative for her research and writings on how gender equality leads to gender equity and the impact it has on the global economy. Subsequently, in an effort to combine both nursing and the law, Ekpu relocated to Chicago for an opportunity at the prestigious and nationally ranked medical malpractice law firm, Clifford Law Offices. There she worked under the direct mentorship of Bradley Cosgrove, assisting him in winning the largest medical malpractice verdict in Illinois in 2014 and other multimillion-dollar medical malpractice verdicts and settlements, inside and out of the courtroom.


Attorney Ekpu is a litigation attorney who specializes in trial advocacy, civil litigation, civil rights, health law, compliance and immigration. Additionally, as a professional nurse attorney, she serves as a consultant and expert witness in complex medical malpractice and medical-legal cases. By analyzing and making recommendations regarding wrongful death cases, medical malpractice claims, personal injury and/or insurance claim disputes for hospitals and law firms, Attorney Ekpu helps bridge the worlds of medicine, nursing, ethics and the law.

The Glory of a Good Lawyer

Is to Win a Bad Trial.
