He then attended law school at Florida State University College of Law (FSU), and graduated with his Juris Doctorate degree. While attending FSU, he participated in the Children's Advocacy Center clinic, assisting children and their parents with criminal and civil legal cases. In addition, he clerked with an insurance defense law firm.

    Ford was born and raised in Titusville, Florida . He attended the University of Central Florida (UCF) and graduated with a BA degree. While attending UCF he was heavily involved in a variety of campus activities, including Student Government, writing for the school paper, and numerous honor societies and organizations. There, he developed a strong connection with the Central Florida community and the University. He regularly volunteers his time working with student organizations and often represents college and high school students in legal matters.
