Ed is an active member of several legal and civic-minded organizations, including the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the American Civil Liberties Union. He is also a member of the Workers' Compensation Panels of the National Football League Players' Association, the National Hockey League Players' Association and the Professional Hockey Players Association representing injured professional athletes.
