Last year, I was petitioned to the courts for custody of my son. Feeling hopeless and distraught, I started searching for legal services. After speaking with several different attorneys, Mr. Caleb Ballew was the only person who took a genuine interest in my case, asked questions about the petition, and offered me an affordable rate. Because of this, I was able to retain him immediately and provide all the documents required to move forward. He took my case seriously and represented me well in court. Afterwards, I was confident we won the case. The following week, I received the judgment showing I did indeed win. He is a spectacular attorney, very knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I recommend Mr. Caleb Ballew to anyone in need of legal services.
I can't say enough good things about this fine young man. Last August I was in the beginning stages of a nasty divorce. I didn't have much money and I couldn't find anybody to represent me for the amount I could afford. I was at the lowest point in my life and that's when I met Caleb Ballew. He made quite an impression right from the start. He actually cared and wanted to help me. Caleb met with me and helped me get started with legal assistance. He was polite, kind, caring and wise beyond his years. I remember asking Caleb if there was anything I could do to repay him for all his help. His reply was...PAY IT FORWARD. I will never forget his kindness and I promise to pay it forward for the rest of my life. I only wish there were more Caleb Ballew's in this world. You are going to be very successful Mr. Ballew!
Mr. Ballew agreed to handle my adoption "unraveling" challenge with surprising eagerness and respectful understanding of my goal. He was very personable allowing me to be totally open, honest and trusting of his maintaining confidentiality. This case was unlike any that had been submitted in Madison County before: how to "unadopt" someone. Mr. Ballew pursued the Probate Judge vigorously attempting to set up a meeting with he and myself. He kept me informed of the status of my case throughout the postponements in meeting time. I am 100% satisfied with his professional services.
I first went to Caleb for pre-nuptial counseling. Later I went with a family member to discuss her estate planning. He is very knowledgeable to be such a young attorney and very willing to research what he was not as familiar with. He appeared to be very caring about our needs and he is very personable. Several months after I had been to his office, I saw him at the courthouse and he called me by name. I was so amazed! He will do well in his profession and I would definitely hire him again if I need an attorney in the future and I will recommend Caleb to anyone who needs an attorney.
Caleb was immediately proactive in preserving my parental rights in my child custody case. In a highly chaotic and emotionally draining turn of life events, Caleb reassured me things would be alright. He very quickly set legal procedures into motion to regain stability and normalcy to the life's of my daughter and I. Throughout the divorce process, Caleb was easily reached for any counsel and or advice concerning situations that would often rise between court dates. Divorce can often be extremely difficult and confusing and mine was no exception, however, Caleb was nothing less than a much needed friend outside the courtroom and an absolute professional inside the courtroom. I can't thank him or recommend him enough for protecting the relationship between a loving father and his daughter. She is my angel and I couldn't imagine life without her, thanks to Caleb I don't have to!
Mr.Ballew was very thorough with my child custody case. Having never dealt with a lawyer, he was very informative of everything that was happening. He even helped me with getting child support which i hadnt even thought of. He kept me up to date on court dates, explaining how things will go and always polite and professional.
I have been through divorces, custody issues, and other legal situations needing an attorney. I will say Caleb Ballew is by far the best I have dealt with. And I am not just saying that because I won my case, I would write this same review regardless of the outcome! The outcome just makes it that much better.
I am a 50+ male and I have to be honest and say initially his youth was a concern for me but Caleb overcame that with his knowledge, professionalism, and communication.
Caleb kept me informed all along the way letting me know what was going on and what the next steps would be.
In the initial divorce I wanted custody and was told by another attorney I would lose, so I settled for visitation. Five years ago I tried to get custody with no success.
I came to Caleb because of a custody modification filed by my ex-wife of almost 10 years. At that time I had standard visitation while she had primary custody. We counterclaimed and ultimately I was awarded joint custody! This was HUGE! It is very difficult for a father to gain custody or change custody once it has been set.
I can not say enough about how much I respect Caleb Ballew and his work ethics. If you are looking for an attorney, hire this man! He will do you right!
