Garden City, Nassau County Lawyer
Nicholas Ferrara has recently taken the New York State Bar exam in the hopes of becoming one of the firm’s associates.
Mr. Ferrara was a football standout in high school and college. As a member of the St. Anthony’s High School varsity football team from 2007 to 2009, he was ranked the top high school kicker/punter in the country and garnered All-American, All-Tristate, All-State, All-Long Island, All-Metro New York and All-Catholic High School Football League honors.
He continued his football career at the University of Maryland – the alma mater of another Long Island high school football standout, Boomer Esiason, who went on to play for three NFL teams – where he started all four years as a kicker and punter. He was a first-team freshman All-America pick by the Football Writers Association of America and all-Athletic Coast Conference honors by Sporting News and Rivals.com. He finished at Maryland with 30 field goals made (ninth in school history) and 143 points (10th in points by a place-kicker and 17th in all-time scoring).
After graduation, he attempted to continue his football career by attending New York Jets training camp as a walk-on. However, his dreams of playing in the NFL ended when he injured his hip after making a tackle. He underwent two surgeries at the Hospital for Special Surgery for his hip. Doctors told him that, if he injured his hip again, he would never walk again. After examining his post-football career options, he decided to take the LSAT.
In July 2017, he took the New York State Bar exam; he is currently waiting for the results. Once he passes the Bar, he will become an associate with the firm.
