  Jack Ford Profile

Emmy and Peabody Award-winning journalist, nationally recognized trial attorney, author, and teacher, Jack Ford has had a unique and remarkably successful career. Raised by a single parent, his journey has taken him from a small town in New Jersey to Yale University, where he was a three-year starter on the varsity football team, to the Fordham University School of Law, where he helped finance his legal education with winnings from three appearances on the television quiz show, Jeopardy!, to courtrooms throughout the country, and, ultimately, to the upper echelons of television journalism.

Following his graduation from law school, Mr. Ford spent three years as a prosecutor in New Jersey before entering private practice. He became a well-known and respected trial attorney, successfully handling such high profile cases as the Northeast's first death penalty trial, one of the nation's first corporate homicide cases, and the Wall Street insider trading scandal of the late 1980's. In addition, he was an Adjunct Professor of Law at the Fordham Law School, is currently a Visiting Lecturer at Yale University, and speaks frequently at colleges and law schools across the country. His debut novel, The Osiris Alliance, was published to critical acclaim in 2009.
