EFF Welcomes Ernesto Falcon, Legislative Counsel

Please join us in welcoming legislative counsel Ernesto Omar Falcon to EFF!

Ernesto will be working with us to analyze bills in Congress and make sure that digital rights have a voice on the floor in Congress, particularly in copyright, patent, and net neutrality issues. Before coming to EFF, Ernesto spent six years as a staffer for two members of Congress. After that, he served as Vice President of Government Affairs at Public Knowledge, an organization that EFF frequently works with on fair use and open Internet advocacy.

After eight years in Washington, Ernesto returned to his home state of California to go to law school at McGeorge School of Law. We're glad to have him here at EFF, using his experience in Washington and his expertise as an attorney to fight for Internet freedom.
