Victoria has been practicing law in the area of assisted reproductive technology for over twenty-five years. She is a graduate of St. John’s University School of Law (1984) and Fairfield University (1978, Magna Cum Laude), as well as the founder and managing partner of The Ferrara Law Group, PC, focusing on assisted reproductive technology & surrogacy law.

In addition to her law firm, Attorney Ferrara owns and operates Worldwide Surrogacy Specialists, where she’s helped many couples and individuals have children through gestational surrogacy.

One of her greatest achievements is the landmark decision of Raftopol v. Ramey, a Supreme Court case that created a new way to establish legal parentage in Connecticut. Through this case, an intended parent was granted rights to a child via a valid gestational agreement regardless of genetic connection to the child to be born to the gestational surrogate.

Attorney Ferrara has lectured and presented as a panelist in international surrogacy conferences throughout the world and 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. In 2016, Victoria was awarded the LAMBDA award for outstanding LGBTQ community service. Victoria is a member of the Academy of Assisted Reproductive Law Attorneys, the Family Law Institute of the National Gay and Lesbian Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the Connecticut Bar Association, and the Greater Bridgeport Bar Association.
