Attorney Victoria T. Ferrara has been practicing law in Connecticut since 1985. She is a graduate of St. John’s University School of Law (1984) and Fairfield University (1978, Magna Cum Laude). She is the founder and managing partner of Ferrara Hayden, PC, a law firm with several attorneys and paralegals. The firm has a focus on assisted reproductive technology law and family law. In addition, Attorney Ferrara owns and operates a surrogacy matching agency, Worldwide Surrogacy Specialists, LLC through which she has helped many couples and individuals have children through surrogacy. One of her achievements is the landmark decision of Raftopol v. Ramey, 12 A.3d 783 299 Conn. 681 (2011), a Connecticut Supreme Court case that essentially created a new way to establish legal parentage in Connecticut, ie, by being a party (Intended Parent) to a valid gestational agreement regardless of genetic connection to the child to be born to the gestational surrogate. Attorney Ferrara appears frequently in courts throughout the State of Connecticut for all matters in involving assisted reproduction law, pre-birth orders, and adoptions, including co-parent and step-parent adoption matters.
