I hired Mr. Ballinger for my son's DUI. If we had not hired him, my son would be in jail now. Mr. Ballinger was great at walking us through the process and explaining everything. Because of a motion that was filed contesting the evidence, some of it was not allowed to be used against my son. Without the evidence, the prosecutor could not go forward with the original charges. As a result, my son will be going back to college this fall without a criminal record. Thank you, Mr. Ballinger!

He answered my question less than 24 hours after posting. I am very satisfied with his response and would definitely consider using him for my legal needs.

Mr Ballinger was simply superb in court, and while the case didn't go our way, it was certainly not due to his lack of preparation or knowledge of the law, as you could truly sense his giving his all in the court room.
Pretrial, Mr Ballinger is very knowledgeable and truly cares about your case.
While we did not get what we were after, we didn't exactly lose either, and I plan to use Mr Ballinger again in the future for any legal needs I may have in the future.

Currently, Eric is serving as co-counsel with me on a serious felony case. He has been instrumental during every phase of this criminal prosecution. He also has a great deal of respect from his peers, prosecutors, and the judges.

I would highly endorse Eric to handle your domestic case. I had the pleasure of working with and learning from Eric for six years prior to becoming an attorney. Eric always had the ability to find the perfect argument and the flaw in the opposing counsel's case. Eric represents his client's with 100% focus and attention to the small details many would overlook. The best compliment that I could give Eric would be to say that if I were involved in a case today and he was the opposing counsel, I know that I'm in for a hard fought case and I have to be on my "A" game.
