About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.

I grew up in New England and I love our community.  I became a lawyer over 30 years ago to help people and since then I am honored to have businesses, families and municipalities choose me to represent them in negotiations, ligitation and mediation, in addition to being a trusted counselor and friend.  My job is different every day and I love it.

Business/contract & municipal law work
Have had the pleasure of working with Attorney Ferriter a number of times over past decade. Whether the task at hand is involves the complex needs of one of our corporate or municipal business clients or working with one of our private clients on a will, setting up trusts or estate plans, or closing on a house...Jack and his team are "up to the challenge". I strongly recommend this firm and continue too!
