Can You Risk Your Future, Freedom And Reputation On Less Than All Of These Criteria?

[1] All attorneys at Ball & Hase, are Board Certified Criminal Law Specialists by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

[2] Wes Ball has been named a Texas Super Lawyer in Criminal Law every year since 2008. Don Hase has been named a Texas Super Lawyer in Criminal Law every year since 2009. Both Wes and Don have this recognition for the current year. Texas Super Lawyer recognition is awarded to less than 5% of all lawyers through a rigid process that involves nomination and recognition by professional colleagues, validation through third party research and review by a panel of highly credentialed attorneys. Check the Texas Super Lawyer website to verify current recognition.

[3] Experience as a former prosecutor is valuable as an insight into our opponent in Court. However, criminal defense requires extensive experience in criminal defense. Wes Ball and Don Hase will not be learning the defense side of criminal law on your case. Wes and Don have over 50 years combined criminal defense practice.

[4] At Ball & Hase, if you hire one of our attorneys, you will be represented at all phases of your case by a Board Certified Criminal Law Specialist Texas Super Lawyer with substantial criminal defense experience. At no phase of your case will you be represented by an inexperienced junior associate or attorney that you meet for the first time at the courthouse. Ask any attorney you interview if they will be your attorney in court.

[5] At Ball & Hase, although licensed to do so, we do not dabble in criminal defense, we specialize. We do not practice in other areas of law such as personal injury, divorces and family law.
