Experience, purpose & passion

Over many years, Ferriter Law has demonstrated innovative legal solutions to complex cases throughout the region. From business and finance law to municipal and energy law, our history is one of arguing important legal issues in the most professional way possible. Using years of experience, we research and build cases which will establish legal precedence. You can take a look at some of these cases by reviewing our approach to certain cases. By doing so, you will gain an important insight into the quality of work you will receive from our professional staff of lawyers. Most important, our clients are come first.

We understand business owners. We realize that you have big dreams, and spending your precious time and money on lawsuits is not one of them. Most law firms view their clients as files, and each file is simply an opportunity to bill more hours. In this long standing and traditional “big law” business model, a lawyer’s “productivity” is viewed in terms of hours billed, not based on effective legal representation.

Our system at the Ferriter Law Firm is entirely different: We align our interests with your interests. Our goal is to help each client successfully resolve their matter as quickly as possible, through exhaustive screening, creative pre-suit mediation, and aggressive litigation, when necessary. We develop a unique litigation plan with each client to maximize resources and prepare for success.

We also specialize in all areas of estate and elder law. For decades, we have been providing families with the knowledge and expertise to plan properly for life’s main events. We have been trusted with many estate issues and bring that long experience to your particular needs.
