About Me

R.J. Ferraro was born and raised in Stuart, Martin County, Florida.  The son of a prominent Divorce and Criminal Defense Lawyer, R.J. has grown up in and around a law office, judges and attorneys.  R.J. Ferraro became a criminal defense lawyer because he enjoys helping people solve difficult problems, and he likes to conduct jury trials.  While every case will not go to trial, R.J. Ferraro will prepare every case as if it will, because he truly beleives that the most prepared lawyers get the best outcomes for their clients.  If you have been charged with a crime, contact me.  I will discuss your case with you in a free consultation.  We will take a custom approach to your case that is tailored toward meeting your specific needs and goals.  For more information, check out www.stuartcriminaldefense.com
