Fani Taifa Willis was born in 1971 (age 53 years) in in Inglewood, California. Her father, John C. Floyd III, was a founder of a faction of the Black Panthers but grew disillusioned by the movement’s infighting. When Willis was in the first grade, her family moved to Washington, D.C., where her father practiced law as a criminal defense attorney. Her parents divorced and her mother eventually moved back to California. Willis mostly stayed with her father.


Fani Willis graduated from Regina High School (Maryland), an all-girls Catholic High School that closed in 1989. Willis studied political science at Howard University, graduating cum laude in 1993, then moved to Atlanta to attend Emory University School of Law, graduating in 1996 with a Juris Doctor.

Willis’s first government job was as a solicitor, prosecuting misdemeanors and city ordinance violations. She spent 16 years as a prosecutor in the Fulton County district attorney’s office. Her most prominent case was her prosecution of the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal. Willis, an assistant district attorney at the time, served as lead prosecutor in the 2014 to 2015 trial of twelve educators accused of correcting answers entered by students to inflate the scores of state administered standardized tests. Eleven of the twelve were convicted of racketeering under Georgia’s RICO statute in April 2015.

In 2018, she went into private practice. That year, she ran for a seat on the Fulton County Superior Court, and lost. In 2019, Willis became Chief Municipal Judge for South Fulton, Georgia. In 2020, Willis was elected district attorney for Fulton County, defeating Paul Howard Jr., a six-term incumbent and her former boss. In this role she is known for successfully using Georgia’s RICO statute to prosecute non-mobsters, and, as of 2023, is using the same statute to prosecute former president Donald Trump and 18 alleged co-conspirators.

On February 10, 2021, Willis launched a criminal investigation into Donald Trump’s attempts to influence Georgia election officials—including the governor, the attorney general, and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger via a telephone call—to “find” enough votes to override Joe Biden’s win in that state and thus undo Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election.

In January 2022, she requested a special grand jury to consider charges of election interference by Trump and his allies. In May, a 26-member special grand jury was given investigative authority and subpoena power and tasked with submitting a report to the judge and Willis on whether a crime was committed.

She sent target letters to people being investigated related to the fake electors plot. These include two Republican officials—State Senator Brandon Beach and David Shafer, chairman of the Georgia Republican Party and the 16 people who falsely presented themselves as electors. She also sent a target letter to State Senator Burt Jones, but then a judge said she could not target Jones due to a conflict of interest which was created by Willis hosting a fundraiser for the democratic candidate for lieutenant governor.

After hearing from 75 witnesses—including former US Senator Kelly Loeffler, former White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, and possibly Sidney Powell—the special grand jury completed its work and was dissolved on January 9, 2023. On February 16, following a judge’s order, parts of the report were released. Fani Willis’s office indicted Trump and 18 others on 41 charges on August 14, 2023.

A February 2024 court filing in the case revealed that Willis was in a personal relationship with Nathan Wade – the lawyer whom Willis appointed in November 2021 to lead the prosecution – according to an affidavit by Wade. The filing was made in response to an allegation of a conflict of interest and improper romantic relationship from a defendant in the racketeering case, which Willis has denied. According to the filing, Willis and Wade began their relationship in 2022, after Wade’s hiring. This was contradicted by Robin Bryant-Yeartie, a former close friend and co-worker of Willis, who testified that Willis and Wade were in a relationship since 2019.

In May 2022, Willis’ office indicted Young Thug for 56 counts of gang-related crimes under Georgia’s RICO statute and felony charges for possession of illicit firearms and drugs that were allegedly discovered after a search warrant was executed. The rapper has been held in Cobb County jail since his arrest. The trial began on November 27, 2023.


Fani Willis was married to Fred Willis from 1996 to 2005. On the day she took the Georgia bar exam, Willis met her ex-husband Fred Willis, who was working an extra job as a videographer. They married in 1996 and have two daughters. They divorced in 2005. Willis said that she has been in a relationship with Nathan Wade since 2022. According to testimony from a former close friend, the relationship began in 2019. She has two children.
