    Covered all three of my questions

    I had a three part question and Mr. Ballard covered all the points to my satisfaction. Although one of the answers wasn't what I wanted to hear, it was what I expected. All the answers were short, concise and clear. I received other responses which were also good, but the one I received from Mr. Ballard was the most comprehensive of the lot. I will use the information he provided to help the group I'm working with, make an intelligent decision on what avenue to follow. I think it is nice that AVVO offers this service and that there are lawyers willing to offer free advice. I know you only get what you pay for, but this worked out well. I simply wanted to get an opinion on something without going into a lot of detail. This is what I got and now I can decide how to proceed. I'm on the opposite side of the country from Mr. Ballard, but if I were to hire a lawyer for this question, he'd be the one I'd want. Thank you sir!

    Outstanding Service

    I had a question about photography, Facebook, and copyright. Mr. Ballard gave me an in depth answer that was very clear and easy for me to understand. If Mr. Ballard gave me this free advice just on a question I asked in the AVVO website, I can only imagine the service he would provide to his paying clients. I only wish that Mr. Ballard would be closer to my location so I could retain his services. I am definitely inquiring on 'over the net' services. Thanks Mr. Ballard!!

    Aces

    Daniel is an aces-quality lawyer who gave as thorough a few paragraph synopsis for me as could be done without more info. If I had money for a trademark lawyer I would call him up.

    Thank you

    Clearly explained the legalese on a portion of an employment agreement dealing with intellectual property. Mr. Ballard explained his take on it in easy to understand terms and recommended I discuss the matter with my local attorney for futher clarification of the law in my state. I expect nothing less than this type of information and guidance from a professional in any field and I would definitely recommend Mr. Ballard to anyone in his area that is in need of an attorney.

    Eh

    Did not understand a question regarding legality of a cloud type service. When I provided additional details I received no response. This guy may be good for certain subjects but I can't personally say I would recommend or retain this attorney.

    Daniel Nathan Ballard’s response: “The person who wrote this review falsely notes that I did not understand his proposed internet-based business model and was dissatisfied when I chose not to continue to provide him with free information -- information that he did not want to hear anyway because it contradicted his false understanding of the relevant law. C'est la vie. I would not recommend him as a client.”

    Great job on IP advice

    Consulted Daniel regarding IP advice on a contract associated with a social networking startup. I was thoroughly impressed with how quickly he was able to resolve the legalese and explain in layman's terms exactly what the clauses meant. Very straighforward and tells it like it is, not just what we want to hear but what we have to hear.

    Simple, Informative help

    Gave me a simple yet informative feedback on wether hyperlinks are copyright infringement or not, said it's "contributory infringement"

    gives advice on assumption only

    made an assumption that I couldn't afford a lawsuit ( I have no idea why he even came out with that)...and he also thinks that free speech is the same as harassment and cyber bullying...with lawyers like this the world would never move forward...then he has the nerve to tell me to grow thick skin without knowing the all the facts

    Daniel Nathan Ballard’s response: “The person who posted this review engaged in a public dialogue via an online forum. He was "flamed" and was offended. He wants to sue the website that hosted the dialogue exchange. When told he could not, under the law, he childishly chose to blame me -- the attorney who told him that offensive speech, while unfortunate, is protected by the First Amendment and because the website has no duty to referee verbal squabbles among those who visit its site. This person does need to "grow a thick skin" or else not participate in online dialogues.”

    Daniel Ballard is brilliant!!

    This lawyer took time out of his busy day to explain to me the implications of publishing a TV stations logo within a still frame of a newspaper ad I had run, and how to respond and interpret the nasty-gram I got from the TV stations lawyers. An obvious brain. Thanks Dan.
