Peter G. Ford serves as Of Counsel to Pierro, Connor & Associates, LLC, and is head of the firm’s Real Estate Division. Mr. Ford also manages the firm’s title agency, Premier Upstate Title Services. He has been a member of the New York State bar since January 25, 1983 and has been primarily involved in the area of real estate law for most of his career.
Mr. Ford is a graduate of SUNY Potsdam and Albany Law School. Initially, he worked as assistant counsel with the Economic Development Bureau of the City of Albany and was involved in the revitalization of downtown Albany that took place in the mid 1980s, playing a major role in all of the legal aspects to the financing of such projects as the former Union Station, the Kenmore Hotel, Steuben Club, Hampton Plaza, Maiden Lane and many more large public/private financing ventures that brought Albany back from urban decay.
In 1987, Mr. Ford began work with his late father, John Ford, learning the operations of producing title abstracts and, eventually, running their title insurance agency, Ford and Ford Abstract Corporation. During this time, Mr. Ford issued policies of residential and commercial title insurance and represented many individual buyers and sellers of homes throughout the area. In many cases, the individuals were first time home buyers. Mr. Ford has continued his practice to the present day, and has been involved in well over 10,000 closing transactions.
