The Ballard Lawyer.

Our attorneys are from diverse backgrounds and have attended law schools across the country. They share the core values that we live every day: humanity, a sense of fair play, and a dedication to our profession. As a national firm, we have the scope and skill to take on the most complex legal challenges for sophisticated clients in a wide variety of industries. Our lawyers are also known for their regional market knowledge, their community involvement, and the strong, often decades-long relationships they have built with clients.

We are committed to the successful integration and professional development of our lawyers, no matter the stage of their career. New attorneys are integrated into the firm through orientation as well as extensive training and mentorship programs. Our attorneys have opportunities to engage in business development initiatives, legal project management training, and networking events.

We provide our lawyers with the tools to achieve success in the legal marketplace.

We are always seeking to expand our team and add motivated, highly qualified lateral attorneys to our ranks. If you are interested in working in a collegial and collaborative environment while doing meaningful legal work, we hope you consider us
