Quote Mark
I highly recommend Mr. Ballard as he has endless patience, empathy, expertise during an incredible painful, stressful snails pace marathon of the legal system and government procedures.
Quote Mark
They always were responsive to me and showed true concern for my case and its outcome.
Quote Mark
Somehow, Sam turned an extremely stressful ordeal into a somewhat pleasant experience for me. The fact of the matter is that “Sam showed up and showed out for me” by prioritizing my civil rights and creating a process that helped me reach a Settlement with as little pain and stress as possible. I went from a place of hopelessness, oppression, and despair to a place of joy and freedom.... I really appreciated his patience, honesty, and responsiveness; and I can genuinely say that Sam is in this line of work because he is deeply invested in justice and liberation for all.... Choosing this law firm was the BEST decision ever! Sam Ballard, Alan Lescht and Associates are absolutely amazing!!!
