Ed Fallone grew up in a middle-class family in Maryland. The son of a public school teacher and a stay-at-home mom, Ed learned early on that success in life requires hard work.
These lessons were passed down through generations on both sides of Ed’s family. Ed’s great grandfather was an Italian immigrant and his grandfather worked both in the steel mills of Pittsburg and as a farmer. Ed’s maternal grandfather ran a small corner store in Mexico City where he raised Ed’s mother.
As one of four children, Ed worked hard to earn an academic scholarship to Boston University for both his undergraduate and law degrees. After graduating at the top of his class, he was recruited by Fried Frank Harris Shriver and Jacobson in Washington, D.C., where he worked on one of the largest criminal grand jury investigations in U.S. history.
Ultimately, Ed was driven to follow in his father’s footsteps. He and his wife, Heidi, moved to Wisconsin in 1992 where Ed began a more than 25-year teaching career at Marquette University Law School.
Ed has dedicated his life to making the legal system more affordable for low-income and middle-income individuals, and to supporting the needs of the Latino community in Wisconsin.
He served on the boards of organizations such as Voces de la Frontera Accion, the Latino Community Center, Central Legal, Catholic Charities Legal Services for Immigrants, and Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
Along with his wife, Heidi, Ed also founded the patient advocacy organization Stem Cell Now.
Ed and Heidi, who live in Milwaukee, have been married for 28 years and have two children, Emma and Andrew.
