RJ Ferraro, III

R.J. Ferraro, III has been practicing law since 2001, focusing on both Criminal Defense and Family law. He was born in Stuart, Florida and graduated from Florida State University in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science. R.J. received his Juris Doctor from Stetson University College of Law in St. Petersburg, Florida, and was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2001.

After graduating from Stetson, R.J. worked for the Nineteenth Judicial Circuit’s Public Defender where he had the opportunity to defend parties accused of crimes ranging from DUI to murder. The experience and reputation that he earned in this position allowed R.J. to successfully transition into his current role as a private criminal defense attorney charged with preserving his client’s rights in both state and federal court.

In addition to maintaining an active trial practice, R.J. is a former elected representative for the Florida Bar Association Young Lawyers Division Board of Governors for the 19th Judicial Circuit. He is also a member of the Martin County Bar Association, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and is involved with many local charities. RJ founded and chaired the Michael Shields Memorial Inshore Fishing Tournament in 2009 an event that has raised well over a half-million dollars to date for local charities.
