2nd Representation: Fantastic Counsel!
Our expectations and faith in Victor's legal prowess in and out of the courtroom doesn't disappoint. Representing us in our Nuisance case Victor has proven himself once again to go beyond legal eagle he's a legal shark when representing his clients 5 stars Always.

A great lawyer of many diverse talents!
I originally hired Victor Feraru for a landlord-tenant dispute, because he had the best reviews. He quickly resolved the issue in my favor and I was so impressed that I asked him if he could help me with other matters, like copyright infringements and combating people who were selling forgeries of my paintings. (I'm a professional artist.) Victor proved himself equally talented in solving those problems too. Plus he's a very nice person, full of sincere enthusiasm and not expensive!

Amazing Lawyer and Person
Victor is not only a fantastic lawyer who helped me out of a complicated legal situation but a great person on a human level. After reaching out to several disinterested lawyers, Victor not only took my case but achieved the best possible results. I would highly recommend Victor to anyone looking for legal counsel.

Effective negotiator, whole heartedly recommend
Mr. Feraru helped us negotiate a landlord tenant case, I wish we'd called him sooner. When talks broke down, we contacted him & he stepped in & the untenable situation we had been dealing with for the last 4 months was over. Effective, smart & definitely, guy I want on my side.

Amazing expert on landlord-tenant law
I have a lot of lawyer friends, who are also rather expensive. They were giving me conflicting advice about my case regarding my ex-landlord who was not returning my security deposit and instead outrageously claimed that I owed him double the deposit for damages that I did not cause. This went on for about 5 months until the stress and confusion finally made me realize that maybe I shouldn’t rely on friends, or friends-of-friends, who might be great lawyers, but not necessarily experts in landlord-tenant law. So I went online and found Victor Feraru, who had the best reviews. I also liked his photo and thought: “This is the guy I want on my side.” Turns out I was right. Victor immediately knew what to do and got my ex-landlord to back down from his outrageous demands. Victor, who is very up-to-date on new laws, and for a very reasonable flat fee, quickly negotiated a settlement, in my favor, for much more than I was hoping for. I will certainly hire him again in the future.

Extremely professional, made us feel safe and secure, solved our problem very quickly and efficiently
We had a major banking issue that should have never happened. Victor identified almost immediately that the bank and creditors had made a giant mistake. He immediately established a workaround with the creditors, courts, and bank. Within 2 days our giant crisis was resolved, because Victor did not hesitate to start fighting for us. I was randomly looking for litigators on Avvo and did not expect to find someone so good, so quickly. I was very lucky to find Mr. Feraru. He truly demonstrates the power of having good legal representation. It’s priceless.

An honest lawyer... About as rare as a honest politician.
After getting a response from Mr. Feraru to a question I asked here, I reached out to Victor to discuss further. He offered to assist me for a very reasonable fee. I accepted, and he promptly sent me a proper letter of engagement, outlining his fee and exactly what I expected him to do. He did exactly that, however due to a court issue (clerks office was closed when he got there), he had to go back a second time. This incurred him twice the amount of time he originally expected. Surprisingly, he didn’t immediately ask for additional money. I know how things work, and he was spending his time not due to his error, so I offered to compensate him. Which I did. All in all, I got what I needed, and even with the additional time spent I consider the fee I paid as very reasonable. I would not hesitate to engage Mr. Feraru again.

They don't make lawyers like this anymore
Attorney Feraru is straight out of a movie. I posted a question on Avvo about a letter I received from the Department of Homeland Security's TSA division that I was under investigation and could owe $26,000 if found guilty. Attorney Feraru immediately reached out to help and spent hours going over the details, reaching out to his network (the guy who wrote the TSA manual) and wrote 4 different drafts of my letter until he decided to simply tell the TSA that no law was broken, which was true. They were just racially profiling me. The TSA was going to prosecute (their attorney told him) until Attorney Feraru made several phone calls and wrote a letter breaking down their case and convincing them they had nothing. He also kept me up to date with very pleasant and empathetic phone calls throughout. He's someone I could see myself becoming friends with, and I never thought I'd say that in a sentence involving a lawyer. They don't make them like this anymore. It's clear that his incredible life history, being on both advantaged and disadvantaged sides of the system, has contributed to his ability to keep his soul intact while being part of this profession. We won. The TSA threw the case out, and I didn't bankrupt myself fighting them. Attorney Feraru is now my point of contact for any future legal work of a similar nature. If you're reading this and considering hiring him, do it. You'll be in incredible hands.

A lawyer that has a heart for his clients.
Victor is a true example of a lawyer any client would want to hire. Not only his level of expertise and knowledge more than suitable to attack any case that his client needs representation for, but what sets him apart is his genuine empathy and personal conviction he possesses in his zeal to avoid his client getting taking advantage of by the judicial system itself. His clarity and transparency in how we explains his strategy for defense is refreshing. A client can expect when working with victor to feel free to ask any "dumb question" they feel because to victor, there isn't such thing as dumb question. This is important as not all lawyers carry this same sentiment and do not create a judgement free foundation for a client lawyer relationship. I was impressed by the multitude of counselors victor has in his law office/rolodex and wont hesitate to confide in them for a joint strategic play. Victor M Feraru, truly a shinning example of what a lawyer should be morally and professionally and he is a true beacon of what's right in the judicial system. I was proud to be represented by him and you will as well too if given the occasion.

Attorney excellence!!
I was fortunate to have found Victor. I had a matter of concern, that although may have seemed small compared to other cases, it was extremely important to me. The minute I picked up the phone on my first call to Victor, I felt like I found the right guy. He almost immediately made me feel like my concern was among his strongest specialties. I must say that I have never felt in better hands than I have with Victor. He not only showed his experience and expertise, but he showed a level of humanity that you don't often find in people these days. Yes, he indicated that the problem that I needed help with is something he specializes in, but he made it very obvious that he cared about my problem, and since I don't know him personally, that indicates to me that he has a general level of caring about other people, and I would venture to say that this man is dedicated to helping other people, especially if he helped me, without knowing me other than from what I told him about myself and my situation. He followed up with me on a very regular basis to keep me apprised of the status and progression of the process relating to my case. Yes I've had to employ the services of council in the past, and I've never had this level of attention. In the past I've had to pray that my lawyer would answer the telephone, and/or return my calls. This was not the case with Victor. I never had to call him, because he called me to keep me informed each step of the way. This was very human of him and very comforting to me. My case was very important and personal to me, and he made me feel like I wasn't alone, and I instantly felt I couldn't have found a better guy . He was caring, compassionate, thorough, an incredibly generous with his time. Certainly, I could not have spoken on my own behalf in this case, so therefore it was obvious that I needed representation. The end result, was that he presented a solution to my problem and delivered it with profound effectiveness. I would recommend Victor to anyone.

Honest and Succinct
My husband and I are amidst a frustrating and financially draining situation with our previous tenancy. Several of our rights had surely been violated but the specifics had us confused and overwhelmed. I'm not sure what I expected when I reached out to Victor but I'm glad that I did. He knows his stuff! He's personable, attentive, thorough and best of all of good moral compass. He's honest and truly cares about the client. He could have just as easily have taken my money which I was more than ready to hand over -- but instead, rather than expose us to further stress and financial loss he guided me on how I could handle the matter myself and in a way that gives the other party an opportunity to act in good faith in the hopes we would not have to go through the arduous legal process surely to follow. With Victors guidance I felt confident in my tone and verbiage and to be assertive along with the tools he'd given me. This is the stage we're in at the moment. If the other party fails to act in good faith we will most definitely be hiring Victor to handle the matter as we have the utmost confidence in his ability.

Great personality and so caring
I had an ex who didn’t want to move out my apt after we broke up so I reached out for a consult and Mr Feraru replied. Gave me options and instantly took me on as his client. Resolved my issues in a timely manner which gave me peace of mind. He is a great attorney and a decent human being who cares. If I should need an attorney in the future he would be my first choice. So empathetic and awesome. Went the extra mile for me and I’m so grateful.

One of the good guys!
Victor is amazing! He was everything he said he would be and do! He was immediately available to answer my questions and the only one willing to give me some much needed legal guidance! He was fair and affordable and really was invested in my case! He was able to work with a debt collection company and an upscale car dealership to reach a reasonable settlement on a car i cosigned for my ex who had decided to stop paying for and leave for me to deal with! He guided me through the process and held my hand through the entire process from start to finish! If you want someone you can trust and who will actually do the right thing, than i would highly recommend Victor! Not many Lawyers with his values, morals and work ethic!
