About me

This October will mark the 44th Anniversary of being sworn in as an attorney in Pennyslvania and next February will be the 44th in New Jesey.  


Over that time, I have been honored to have represented over 4,000 clients in the personal injury field/   My clients tell us they are happy because when they compare their results with their friends and familes, they are pleasantly surprised at what a good job our firm did for them.   Many of them refer clients to us as well, for which we are very grateful.


I've tried over 250 jury trials and that track record helps convince insurance adjusters and their attorneys that if they don't make reasonable settlement offers, we are not afraid to bring the case to trial.  


I really enjoying helping folks and have try to return every call the same day.  Please take a few minutes to see episodes of The People's Law School that I have put on YouTube and are posted on The Ferrara Law Firm's Facebook page.   We're here to help you.   Please go to our website at for more information on our cases and qualifications.  


Finally, I am blessed to have a wonderful wife of 45 years, Penny,  five great childen,and three grandsons.
