A History Of Helping
From my time in the army to my role as an elected official to my work as an attorney, I have always been passionate about helping my country, my community and all who live here.
Serving Virginia, West Virginia And Ohio
A Personal Injury, Family Law And Criminal Law Attorney Who Cares About You
At Ballard Law, the bedrock of my practice is the belief that a lawyer should care about the people they serve, and should demonstrate that caring through hands-on, thoughtful, results-oriented representation.
When you choose me to represent you in a personal injury, family law or criminal law case, you can be confident knowing that I will give your case the hands-on attention it deserves. I will listen to you, identify your goals and build the legal strategy that makes the most sense to achieve them. Then I will put my decades of legal experience to work in pursuit of the results you need.
A Lifelong Dedication To Public Service
All my life, I have been passionate about helping people. After the tragic events of September 11th, 2001 I was called to join the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps. My military career took me from the historic 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry) to the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR)(Airborne) and beyond.
My career as an elected official includes serving on the town council of my hometown, Pearisburg. Most recently, I have had the honor of being elected as a delegate for Virginia’s House of Delegates.
From representing my country in combat to my district in the Virginia General Assembly to my neighbors in the town council to my clients in court, it is all about putting forth every effort to make people’s lives better.
When you choose me as your lawyer, you can be certain that I will work hard to help you move forward. In my decades of legal practice, I have overcome challenges of all kinds and all sizes, and I am excited to put my experience to work helping to overcome yours.
Outstanding! Great people who treat you as family….not a number….they keep you well-informed on everything….could not ask for anything more…
They were willing to do whatever was needed to be done. They listened to what I wanted and worked diligently on my behalf. I’d recommend them to anyone looking for an attorney.

Committed To My Community
My family and I take a lot of pride in this community. I was born in Pearisburg and live here to this day. Whenever possible, I strive to give back, whether through community initiatives like Hunters Helping Kids and Renew The New, or working with a number of veterans organizations, as well as coaching a wide range of kids’ sports.
