Personal injury, criminal defense, trial services
A founder of the firm now known as Ferro, Kuba, Mangano, Sklyar, P.C., Bill Ferro serves as the firm’s managing partner. In this role, he coordinates a team of attorneys, paralegals, and support staff all working towards the common goal of making FKMS the gold standard for New York law firms.
Ferro began his career as a criminal defense attorney where he handled myriad high profile criminal matters, civil rights, civil rights violations and cases involving police brutality. He later started a personal injury practice, which immediately grew in to one of the most successful in the industry. Today the firm’s Personal Injury department handles upwards of 1,000 cases per year with outstanding results. For the past ten years the Personal Injury department has focused on connecting Spanish-speaking clients to FKMS. The increase in Hispanic clientele drew Ferro’s attention to the needs of New York’s under-served Latino community. As a result, the firm has expanded its philanthropic efforts to include providing school supplies to the community, food drives throughout the year, donating to children’s hospitals and an annual event where the FKMS office is transformed into a toy store for approximately 50 families.
In 2010 the firm opened its first community based Law Center in Brentwood, Long Island and followed, in 2012, with a location in Jackson Heights, Queens. The firm also has three Spanish language radio programs on both Long Island and in New York City.
Ferro is a graduate of Brooklyn Law School and currently lives in Long Island where he serves as President of the Jericho School District Board of Education. He has been named a New York State Super Lawyer five times. Due in large part to the Firm’s involvement in the Latino community, Ferro was named one of Long Island’s Most Influential People of 2010 by Long Island Business News.
