About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.

I graduated law school in 1983 and have been practicing law full time ever since. I have tried hundreds if not thousands of cases, mostly in the areas of family law including child custody and divorce, and criminal defense. I have appealed over one hundred cases. In 2013, I received the New York State Bar Association’s award for Attorney Professionalism. My goal in each case is to formulate a plan with the client as an active partner, to probe that plan for its strengths and weaknesses, to exploit the strengths and address the weaknesses, all in an effort to achieve the client’s desired result through litigation or settlement.

John Ferrera-Family Law
Mr. Ferrera was ALWAYS a fair, professional, respectful, knowledgeable and compassionate attorney. Due to the nature of my case, Mr. Ferrera and I worked together for many years. He is well-versed in family law. I always appreciated his honesty. Even when I did not like the information he had to present to me, I was always better off knowing the facts he provided. He is thorough, intelligent and hard working. He is a credit to his field. It is without hesitation and my pleasure to recommend him as a family law attorney.

I contacted Mr. Ferrara after having been brought to court three times in four years by my ex. From the initial consultation it was clear that i was dealing with an consummate professional. Mr. Ferrara took the time to truly understand the situation and was very clear at every step what he was doing on my behalf. Communication was always clear and there was never a time when i wasnt able to contact him. His response time was always quick. He is well versed in Family Law and that is apparent in the documents he filed on my behalf. I highly recommend him.

John Ferrara represented my husband and myself in a family court matter. He returned every call and email. He met with us numerous times to review our case, explain things to us and guide us in making decisions. His thoroughness was above and beyond anything we expected. He was compassionate to our situation. Our case ended with a court decision in our favor. All thanks to John Ferrara.
