Barletta Names Falvello District Director
HAZLETON – Congressman Lou Barletta (PA-11) today announced that he has named long-time area attorney Conrad A. Falvello as the new District Director, who will oversee all staff and operations for the four 11th Congressional District offices. Falvello, who will be stepping away from the family law firm he founded with his father, also served as solicitor of the City of Hazleton for seven years while Barletta was mayor. Falvello will oversee Barletta’s district offices in Hazleton, Carlisle, Sunbury, and Harrisburg. He will assume his new role on October 11, 2016.
“Connie has had a distinguished career to this point and has always placed an emphasis on public service, so this new position is a natural fit,” Barletta said. “He has been a trusted advisor for many years, and now he will be a great asset to the people of the 11th District of Pennsylvania. I look forward to working with him once again.”
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Dickinson Law School, Falvello formed the Falvello Law Firm with his father in 1977 before merging with Hourigan, Kluger & Quinn from 1982 to 1991. Reforming the Falvello Law Firm in 1991, he practiced there until now, and will leave the firm in the hands of his daughter, Alexis. During his career he performed many public duties, including as solicitor for Black Creek Township for 15 years, solicitor of the Butler Township Zoning Board, assistant solicitor for the Hazleton Area School District for three years, solicitor for Hazleton City Council for two years, and solicitor for the City of Hazleton for seven years.
“I have great admiration for the work Congressman Barletta has done for the people of our region and I look forward to joining his team,” Falvello said. “Success in a career does not mean as much if you don’t give back to the community, and I am eager to take this next step in my public service.”
Falvello has a history of devoting his time and efforts to community organizations and charities. He has been a member of the Hazleton Area Sports Hall of Fame Committee since 2006 and has served on the board of United Charities Children’s Home for seven years, spending one year as president. He is also a founding board member of the Committee for Justice for All, an association of attorneys who advocate for civil justice. Falvello also served for two years as a board member and executive committee member of the Hazleton Area Economic Development Organization.
