Our Team

Victoria T. Ferrara

Principal

Attorney Victoria Ferrara has practiced in the courts of Connecticut and New York for the past thirty years. She chose to practice assisted reproduction technology law and surrogacy law because it allowed her to use her knowledge and skills to help create families.

Victoria has remained on the cutting edge of assisted reproductive law issues, representing clients in LGBT-related law proceedings and surrogacy arrangements. One of her greatest achievements is the landmark decision of Raftopol v. Ramey, a Supreme Court case that established a new way to determine legal parentage in Connecticut.

Victoria appears frequently in courts throughout the State of Connecticut for all matters involving assisted reproduction law, surrogacy in Connecticut, pre-birth orders for surrogacy purposes, and adoptions, including co-parent and step-parent adoption matters. She has published numerous articles and lectured and presented as a panelist in surrogacy conferences throughout the world.

Attorney Ferrara performs significant volunteer activities related to her work, including serving as president of the Mid-Fairfield AIDS Project; as a member of the Sacred Heart University Board of Regents; and as the former Vice Chairman of Legal Affairs for the Westport/Weston Chamber of Commerce. In 2016, Victoria was awarded the LAMBDA award for outstanding LGBTQ community service.
