People-Oriented Person
Joe is a high-energy, people-oriented person. Working alongside with us, we are confident that Joe has designed our estate plan that will avoid probate, reduce estate taxes, and minimize professional fees. Joe also provided the necessary one-on-one time with us in order to ensure we understood the contents of our estate planning documents.

Estate Planning
Joe has been wonderful to work with in setting up my estate. I was very nervous about the whole process after losing my husband in a tragic accident. He has listened to my concerns and very patiently helped me work thorough guardianship of my children and all of the details of living wills, etc. I highly recommend Joe as a very knowledgeable and understanding attorney. I also know I can contact him at any time if I have questions or need to make a change to my estate in the future.

Great Young Lawyers on the way to the top
I had the pleasure of having Joe Ferraro as a Law Clerk and legal intern for about 4 months. He hungers for all the knowledge, he retains information, he is very smart, he is a great researcher and dogged to get to the right answers and to see down all the paths including those that lead no where to avoid them. Joe is on his way to being a great lawyer and I recommend him to anyone looking for a estate planning lawyer he is sure to proceed with diligence, care and intelligence.
