5.0 stars 15 totalReview Matthew Ballard
WOW! What a pleasant experience I had with this attorney. Mr. Ballard is TOP NOTCH in my book. I have hired him on numerous occasions; be it anything from a speeding ticket to very serious criminal matters for a friend. NOT ONCE did I ever feel like I wasn't the only priority he had going on. Mr. Ballard was very personable, cautious and caring! I was so lucky to have stumbled upon in Court after I watched him fight his heart out for a client. He was not only very charismatic, but passionate in his thoughts and arguments. You can tell he is not just another run of the mill attorneys in it for a paycheck. He has real integrity and gives a crap about his clients. The amount of time he spent with me and answered all of my questions and concerns with nothing but respect and patience.
On a side note: I was flabbergasted when I even saw a bad review on here. Someone must have been sour about something, b/c I had nothing but the best experience with Mr. Ballard and would recommend to anyone! Well, anyone that wants an attorney that actually cares and WILL FIGHT for you.
Mere words will never fully express how grateful I am for Matt Ballard. When I was faced with severe criminal charges for the first time in my life, Matt never left my side. I had been accused of "Possession With Intent to Distribute Heroin" and "Transporting Heroin into Virginia". In retrospect, I can understand why everyone I loved found it difficult to believe my recollection of how the events unfolded. Matt never once expressed doubt and consistently provided me with the reality of how my case could culminate. There are far too many attorneys these days that only convey the happy ending. I respect the fact that Mr. Ballard did not simply fill my head with delusions of grandeur. He laid out every possible aspect of the outcomes I was facing.
I can vividly remember the horrible and helpless experience of being incarcerated. On the darkest of days, it did my heart well to receive a spontaneous visit from Matt. Through that glass window, Mr. Ballard would go beyond the scope of his job description by providing me with encouragement, wisdom, and genuine compassion. These visitations blessed me beyond measure and attested to the true content of his character.
When the dust finally settled, Mr. Ballard was able to successfully litigate a "Motion to Suppress" all evidence in Circuit Court. I barely had time to breathe before he calmly made me aware of the prosecutor's intentions to pursue an appeal at the State level. Matt continued to work ceaselessly, on my behalf, and drafted a "bulletproof" brief that ended with The Virginia Court of Appeals "affirming" the decision of the lower court. It was established that the arrest, "violated my Fourth Amendment rights." All of my charges were officially dismissed.
Today, I remain forever thankful for Matthew Ballard. If anyone is reading this review and in need of an attorney that will fight for justice and provide the utmost professionalism imaginable, then search no further. I am proud to call Matt my friend, my confidant, my attorney, and my brother in arms....

There is a handful of dependable professionals whose contact information everyone should keep handy and a trusted attorney is one of them. Diligent, professional, intelligent, and with keen knowledge of the law, Matt Ballard is the sharpest criminal defense and civil litigation attorney you can hope to have in your corner. I called on him on two separate occasions for traffic violations that could have put my driving record in serious jeopardy and I couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcomes. Do yourself a favor and add him to your contacts today—you never know when the need will arise.

I chose Matt Ballard to represent me for a reckless driving ticket. This wasn't an easy reckless driving ticket for Matt to handle. My driving record is terrible. It includes two reckless driving tickets along with a hit and run accident. I served jail time for my hit and run and knew almost for a fact I was going to face even more jail time with this new reckless driving ticket. When Matt got to court he worked every angle possible and seems like he performed magic! Now, my reckless driving ticket was 25 over the speed limit. The judge reduced it from reckless to just speeding 20 over and a small fine and that was it! No suspended license, no jail time! I was ecstatic!! I highly recommend Matt Ballard to anyone. He helped me out tremendously. Thanks again Matt!

I am so ecstatic with the outcome of my case, choosing Mr. Ballard to represent me was the best decision I made regarding this DUI charge. He was able to bring down my charges, something I honestly thought would be impossible. I was so set on the worst outcome of the situation, but he did his job amazingly, despite the fact that I hired him with out much time until my court date (something I DO NOT recommend doing). He is professional and makes you feel comfortable about openly discussing all aspects of the case. He also seems to care for the best interest of his clients. I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone. I could not be more pleased with the outcome as a whole.

I have used attorneys in the past and they have seemed to just not care and wanted to get me to take a plea deal and get it over with. Matt looked at every possible defense and and was completely straight forward about the details and what could happen. In the end i believe Matt got me the best possible outcome with how bad my case looked to the prosecution. I have referred him to 2 other friends and they both had awesome outcomes. Besides being a great lawyer Matt is a even greater person and i think he genuinely cared about me and wanted me to succeed.

I have been represented by Mr. Ballard twice with awesome results both times. I have also referred several friends to him and they were extremely pleased as well. Great office staff with good customer service!

Mr. Ballard defended me on a simple assault charge that seemed impossible to defend, but nonetheless he went the extra mile and provided genuine remorse to those affected while getting the best results on my behalf. As a client who was in distress, Mr. Ballard was completely on my side and was more than fair in my defense.

It is my immense pleasure to recommend Mr. Ballard, as an outstanding attorney. I’ve had the preference, on multiple occasions, to have Mr. Ballard defend me in court. Mr. Ballard always had excellent communication, is well organized, and impeccably judicious. All cases were in my favor. I know, without a doubt, Mr. Ballard will continue to be an admirable attorney.
