Rocky handled my divorce. Considering the circumstances he made it so seamless. I can't say enough good things about how he professionally represented and made sure communication was top priority.

Incredible Experience
We contacted Rocky regarding an issue we had with a former landlord not returning our deposit. Rocky handled this so quickly and efficiently, that we were absolutely blown away! We got a much better outcome that we could have ever hoped for! Rocky is great at what he does and keeps up communication with you so you never have to wonder what is going on. I cannot recommend Rocky enough!

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Ball represented me in a dispute with an auto rental service. The rental company was attempting to charge me for damages that were not incurred during my rental period. I tried multiple times to settle the dispute on my own to no avail. I met with Mr. Ball and he promptly settled the matter with a few phone calls and a letter. His efficiency was greatly appreciated as this dispute had gone on for months. Mr. Ball was professional, knowledgable, and affordable. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a good attorney.

Great Attorney!!
Rocky is a great attorney. He listened to my legal issue, and gave me all the options available. I particularly requested him for a earliest court date to which he tried his best and got me the same. He's was very courteous and professional with me during the entire duration of handling my case. On the D-day he came to court on time and got me the verdict that I sought. I will seek his representation again, if needed.

Awesome experience
My husband and I were in need of a legal service so we contacted Rocky Ball, an Attorney at Ernst and Associates. He was very quick to respond to our emails. He also took the time to explain everything in terms we could understand and the steps that were going to be involved. Some of wording on legal documents can be daunting but he answered all of my questions quickly and with clarity. The turnaround time between what we needed and when he delivered it was amazing! All in all, it was a great experience and I would not hesitate to refer him.
