About Charon

Learn Charon’s areas of practice.

Attorney Cha’Ron Ballard knows first-hand what it is like to experience financial difficulties. Growing up in the inner cities of Philadelphia with a single mother who had extremely limited financial resources, Cha’Ron is one of a small group of rare attorneys who can truly relate to the hard times and financial struggles you are experiencing.  With faith and determination, Cha’Ron persevered through challenging times to go on to attend Saint Joseph’s University where she graduated with a Bachelor‘s Degree in Legal Studies and a Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice. Cha’Ron then attended Thomas M. Cooley Law School where she graduated in the top 25% of her class in 2008. Cha’Ron also holds an active Georgia Real Estate Broker’s license with over 20 years of real estate experience. Before opening The Ballard Law Group in 2011, your Consumer Bankruptcy Firm, she worked for some of the largest bankruptcy firms in the state of Georgia.  The Ballard Law Group has assisted two bankruptcy firms in the Atlanta area and their clients when the firms closed or transitioned out of the practice of bankruptcy law. Because of her experience, skills, and compassion for her clients, the Courts and non- bankruptcy attorneys throughout the Atlanta area continue to refer clients to The Ballard Law Group for debt relief.

Excellent Attorney and Staff
I was so nervous about filing bankruptcy but spoke with Vicki Fox and she gave me some very detailed information about the different options and costs. Once I had my mind made up, they scheduled me to come in and went over the paperwork step by step explaining expectations and answering questions and concerns. They made an very uncomfortable circumstance, absolutely comfortable

Blesse to have found this firm
I had called many offices before this one and the prices were so high. Then I received a flyer in the mail and Because of their price I was immediately led to call them. I called and was very satisfied, no hidden fees, no extra charges down the line, just a flat rate. Vicki the receptionist is awesome, it was always a pleasure talking to her. This law firm filed my case in record time. The process was very quick and with them it seemed easy and effortless. I was truly blessed to have picked up the phone and called them. One of my best decisions.

Excellent Lawyer
I received several letters in the mail to handle a lawsuit that had been filed against me. I contacted several of them with no luck. I called the Ballard Law Group and it was the best decision I ever made. Cha'ron was outstanding. She made me feel comfortable and told me what to expect. Everything went as she explained. I would recommend Cha'ron to anyone that is looking for a bankruptcy attorney. She is outstanding.

Great Service
My case was professionally reviewed and explained regarding the procedures needed to process a chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Each time an appointment was needed I was accommodated in a reasonable time. At the time of this review I am awaiting the results of my bankruptcy case but I would not hesitate to recommend Attorney Ballard. Once the court date had arrived a co-associate was there to meet me before the meeting and explained what needed to be done during the Trustee Meeting - she also answered questions after the meeting regarding what was said by the Trustee. Thereafter I was sent information by Attorney Ballard regarding any comments made by the Trustee.
