We at Ball Eggleston PC strive to provide whatever legal help you need. Many legal problems do not fall neatly into one of our clear-cut legal categories, but we still want to be a resource for you to call. We assist in a wide array of law practices and recognize your specific situation may not fall neatly into one category. If you’re not sure how to proceed, we can help you understand your options. Here are four specific services of general law in which we specialize in and can do our best to help serve your individual needs.
Administrative law is the practice of regulating local, state, and federal government agencies and boards, whether we are representing one such group or helping you dispute one.
One common service for administrative law is presenting your case in front of a board or governing body. It is important to have experienced representation in front of these groups.

Civil litigation cases can be diverse and far-reaching. Never hesitate to inquire about your case or concerns.
