Read what our attorneys say about practicing law at Ballard Spahr...

Sometimes there isn't a clear answer to the question a client poses. Rather than shrinking from the challenge, we embrace it. We put our heads together and work through the problem. Then we give the client the practical advice it needs to make the best decision for the business. Our cooperative approach is one of the things that makes Ballard Spahr special.

I decided to join Ballard Spahr based not only on its excellent reputation as a leading national law firm, but more so because of the firm's strong culture and commitment to the individual. For me, the key to true job satisfaction and a successful career is high quality work coupled with a place that values you. At Ballard, I have found both.
Elizabeth A. Sloan, Partner, Delaware

I've moved from the government to law firms a few times during my 16-year career, and I've never experienced a better, smoother transition. The support and resources – from the department head to administrative staff – for my onboarding and integration have been tremendous. My practice has grown more than I expected in my initial few months at the firm.
