He graduated from Fordham College in 1960, and later received his law degree from St. John's University. He worked for the law firm of Mudge Rose, and later formed his own firm, Ford Marrin Esposito Witmeyer & Gleser, LLP (www.fmew.com).
As part of a campaign for justice for his sister, he obtained a 54.6 million dollar liability ruling against Jose Guillermo Garcia and Carlos Eugenio Vides Casanova, who were retired El Savadorean generals living in the United States.
