Under Promise and Over Deliver, seems to be the model of this firm! From the time I walked in their office through the disposition of my case I never lost faith or confidence in Mr. Bruno, and I can honestly say I WILL NEVER WALK INTO COURT WITHOUT A BRUNO!


John W. Ferraro represented my Property Management Company on multiple landlord/tenant issues. All issues were handled promptly, professional and with discretion. John was very easy to get in contact with answering all emails same day, returning calls within hours and even texting in emergency situations. Having a law firm that is that committed to serving the needs of its clients is paramount when growing a business.


I found myself in a situation where I was wrongly accused of a crime and was in a really bad situation; legally, mentally, and emotionally. I reached out to Bruno and Ferraro and Kenneth Ralph called me back immediately that day. Kenneth Ralph and Jonathan Bruno treated me like family and in the end I found a satisfactory outcome to my legal matters which helped me mentally and emotionally. Kenneth never failed to communicate to me when my nerves got to me which anyone in a precarious situation can understand. If you are in the Rutherford area and need professional legal help, Bruno and Ferraro are who you want to call.


John Ferraro represented me in a Landlord/tenant matter, handled it with the perfect mix of professionalism and familiarity. They immediately provided me with a sense of certainty and focus whenever something changed. John was incredibly easy to get in contact with, even outside of work hours.


As executor of an estate I felt overwhelmed, however turning to John W. Ferraro for representation in a real estate transaction was hands down the best decision I made. He responded quickly to my questions and concerns, professionally dealt with opposing counsel and problems as they arose, and ensured we closed quickly on the sale of the property. Will use Bruno & Ferraro again for any future real estate transactions.


John Bruno was an excellent choice to represent me during my traffic violation case. He was always in constant communication with me which made me feel very in the loop and at ease during the whole process, which could obviously be quite stressful. He always went the extra mile and put in the work when he could of just settled where most attorneys would. I am eternally grateful for John and the hard work he put in to help me!

I am not sure that I can find the right words to explain how amazing a team John Bruno and Kenneth Ralph are. Aside from the best outcome possible, they amount to so much more. They are genuine, kind, respectful and beyond brilliant. They not only do their job above and beyond any expectation they make their client feel that they are listening to everything they say. They fight the fight. Between their years of experience and who they are as men I don’t think I can find a way to describe what they have meant to my son and our family.
