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.

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.

I endorse this lawyer. I had cases against Matt for numerous years when I was a prosecutor in Newport News. They are battles. He does an awesome job and he fights very hard on behalf of his clients and gets them fantastic outcomes. If I got in trouble, I would hire Matt in a split second to protect my freedom. Awesome guy and an awesome lawyer!!!
