Knowledgable, professional and a great people person
Our previous lawyer could not get anywhere with our case. David was able to accomplish everything we wanted. He is extremely approachable and accommodating as well as professional and knowledgable in his field. Would highly recommend him.

Strategic & motivated to help his clients.
I was charged with DWLR from two prior DWIs, reckless driving (over 90mph), unlawful passing & illegal tint. With his years of experience & extensive knowledge of the the judicial system he adviced me on the options that would favor my case. One of them being driving school to be a litigating factor (evidence of myself trying to right my wrong doing). Due to the fact that this was my second DWLR due to impairment I was facing 120+ days in county, Mr. Ball was able to strike the best deal possible on my behalf. Pleading guilty to the DWLR, the other charges were dropped & only being sentenced 5 days (at the discretion of my PO) & 12 months supervised probation & only having to pay court costs. I recommend his services 100%. He most definitely knows what he is doing. His retaining fee is based on financial state & charges so very obtainable & fantastic representation.

Response from David Ball April 24, 2019
No problem at all. It's not easy to put your trust in an attorney you have not been able to meet in person to handle your legal issues. I make certain to keep in contact with all of my clients to maintain confidence that they are receiving proper representation.

Excellent Family Attorney
Mr Ball handled a separation and property settlement claim for myself. His attentiveness and compassion for what I was facing was impeccable. He handled my claim swiftly and was always prompt in responding to my concerns. I would recommend his practice for anyone that is in need of this type of service.

David helped me with a “pre-nup” agreement. Obviously I hope to never need it; however, I feel protected if I do. We even put some additional and personal clauses in it - like an infidelity clause. I believe it is important to have someone that can help you navigate awkward conversations such as this prior to even getting married... so I know he could handle even tougher conversations post marriage, divorce or other family situation.

Highly recommend Mr. Ball
Mr. Ball handled a child support case of ours and we were so thankful for all of his hard work and dedication for this case. It was a difficult and long one and when it came time for trial, he was extremely organized and provided excellent documentation. Any time we had a question, he was very responsive and always made sure we knew what was going on along the way. For being out of state and having to hire a lawyer you've never met until years into the case, we were very pleased with Mr. Ball and would highly recommend him.

Separation agreement
Mr Ball has extensive knowledge on law. He answered all of my questions and made sure I left with no concerns. He makes sure to keep everything legal and does not promise things he cant give for the sake of making a dollar. Hes fair and hes honest.
